• Pochettino refuses to put time limit on how long striker will be out
• ‘We hope it is not a massive issue but need to wait until the scan’
Harry Kane is facing a prolonged period out of action and could miss the World Cup after sustaining an injury in Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-1 victory over Bournemouth yesterday that resulted in the striker departing from the south coast on crutches and in a protective boot.
Kane collided with Bournemouth’s goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic, after 34 minutes and during a subsequent tangle of legs, twisted his right ankle. The 24-year-old received treatment but was unable to continue and will undergo a scan today to assess just how bad the damage is.
