England captain Harry Kane is confident of making Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euro 2020 in the summer. The 26-year-old picked up a hamstring injury with Tottenham Hotspur at the beginning of the year and it was initially feared that he could be sidelined for around six months after going through a surgery.
However, the marksman has made a quicker recovery than expected and speaking to Sky Sports, he is confident of returning to first-team action with Spurs by mid-April. He added that he is confident of representing the Three Lions at Euro 2020 where they are regarded as one of the favourites to pick up the silverware.
He told: “In my head, I am definitely at the Euros. Unless something pretty drastic happens between now and then, I’ll be there. I’m still not back training with the first team, but I’m working hard in the gym, I’m getting stronger all the time. We’re talking a few more weeks, and I’ll be playing again. I don’t want to make a prediction for which game I might be back, but I am hoping somewhere between the start and the middle of April.”
Without Kane in their ranks, Spurs have stumbled over the past few weeks and they are currently without a win from four games in all competitions. Quite often, Heung-min Son has come to the rescue when Kane has been injured during the backend of the season but that won’t be the case this time around with Jose Mourinho confirming that the South Korean has been ruled out for the campaign with an arm injury.
Spurs recently bowed out of the FA Cup with a penalty shoot-out defeat to Norwich City at the round of 16 stage. The north London side will be hoping to avoid five losses on the bounce when they make the trip to Lancashire to face Burnley in the Premier League. The Clarets have the chance to leapfrog Spurs on the table with a home win.
