England captain Harry Kane a doubt for Belgium clash after injury in training

Harry Kane could miss England’s upcoming Nations League clash with Belgium after suffering a muscle injury in training.

The England captain was handed a rest as Gareth Southgate’s men put three goals past Wales in a one-sided friendly at Wembley on Thursday night.

It’s understood Kane went down with the problem at St George’s Park on Saturday and the injury could see Dominic Calvert-Lewin continue his run in the team after finding the net on his debut in midweek.

The 23-year-old striker has had a barnstorming start to the campaign, scoring ten goals in seven appearances for club and country, with Everton sitting top of the Premier League table.

Kane could also be a doubt for the Three Lions’ following Nations League match at home to Denmark on Wednesday evening.

It’s the latest in a long line of injury problems for Kane, who was forced to miss the end of Tottenham’s season last term with a torn hamstring.

England head coach Southgate hinted that Tammy Abraham and Jadon Sancho – who both missed England’s 3-0 win over Wales – could be in line to feature versus Belgium.

‘Tammy and Jadon both trained this morning, so everybody is available,’ he said.

‘They’ve obviously missed a bit of training, so that’s a concern in terms of their load through the week.

‘But that situation is done, they’re back with the group and we move forward.’

West Ham’s Declan Rice is expected to start in the middle of the park and Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Jordan Henderson could also return to the side.

Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker is in line to earn his 50th international cap in the match.
