Gareth Southgate provides update on Tottenham’s Harry Kane

England vs Belgium

England are set to face off with Belgium very shortly.

The Three Lions head into the tie on the back of a comfortable 3-0 victory over close rivals, Wales, on Thursday evening.

Danny Ings, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Conor Coady were all on target as a much-changed England side dominated.

However, England are no doubt set for a much sterner test this time out.

This clash, of course, comes in the form of a Nations League tie, with England needing to pick up the win to ensure they go top of their group.

And it is also against much tougher opposition, with Belgium current ranked as the world’s no.1 side.

Southgate provides update on Harry Kane

As a result, Southgate was no doubt desperate to call upon his strongest possible starting line-up.

However, when England’s side was released an hour before kick-off, there was one big noticeable omission from the eleven.

Said omission comes in the form of Harry Kane, who has only managed to make the bench.

It has previously been reported that Tottenham did no want Kane, who was said to have suffered a muscle injury, to feature vs Belgium, with England reportedly not willing to let Kane leave the national side.

However, Southgate has since moved to provide an update on Kane. And though the England boss confirmed that Kane has had muscle fatigue, he went on to state that the hitman is not injured and could well be used later in the game:
