'Biggest worry': Roy Keane very concerned about Tottenham player after first World Cup game now
Roy Keane has spoken about the injury picked up by England captain Harry Kane during the 6-2 victory over Iran.
England smashed in as many goals as they ever have in a World Cup game, and Kane did not get on the scoresheet.
He laid on two assists, and occupied the Iranian central defenders, creating space for his teammates to run riot.
And he went down under a heavy challenge in the second half, which is something Keane referenced on ITV at 9.08am on 22/11.
Keane on Kane
Keane said: “The biggest worry was that Kane did look like he got a bad knock.
“That’ll be Gareth’s biggest worry.
“You don’t want injuries this early on in the tournament, particularly to your star players.”
The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported that Kane walked through the mixed zone after the game with light strapping on his right ankle.
The fact he continued playing until the 75th minute and was not taken straight off indicates it was not too serious an injury, but we lie in wait.
Gareth Southgate could have taken Kane off earlier but clearly wanted him to get on the scoresheet first, although it wasn’t to be.
Hopefully, Kane’s injury is not too bad because he can light up this tournament after England’s strong start, with tougher tests to come.
