Harry Kane’s 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign could be in jeopardy after the Tottenham Hotspur striker suffered an ankle ligament injury during a 4-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.
Adrian Kajumba of the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday Kane has been ruled out “until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit” for this summer’s tournament in Russia.
In terms of his club campaign, Kane is set to miss an FA Cup quarter-final against Swansea City, as well as league matches against Chelsea, Stoke City, leaders Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion.
An extended absence for Kane is a major blow for Spurs as the north London club fights to secure a top-four finish and qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League. The Lilywhites are third, a point ahead of Liverpool and leading rivals Chelsea by five points.
