Harry Kane provides injury update ahead of England's Euro 2020 campaign

England captain Harry Kane reveals he will ‘definitely’ be fit for Euro 2020, unless something ‘drastic’ happens in the build-up to this summer’s tournament.

The striker has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since the beginning of the year, missing 13 games for his club Tottenham.

It was initially feared the star striker would miss the rest of the season and the Euros, but Spurs boss Jose Mourinho admitted Kane may return for the final few games of the current campaign.

The 26-year-old told the Evening Standard: ‘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.’

England’s international friendlies against Italy and Denmark later this month will come too soon for Kane.

However, boss Gareth Southgate will be boosted by the news that Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is speeding up his recovery from a back injury.

The pacy forward has not featured since mid-January, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he could also be back before the end of the Premier League season.

Before United’s FA Cup clash with Derby County on Wednesday, Solskjaer told MUTV: ‘As any player, he [Rashford] wants to be fit as quickly as possible and play as soon as possible.

‘If that means playing in April, if he’ll be fit for us towards the end of the season, fantastic. If it takes longer, it takes longer.

‘We just have to be sensible with it because we’re going to have Marcus playing here for many, many years.’
