This is definitely not the kind of news England fans will want to hear just hours away from their biggest game in almost 30 years, but former Three Lions boss Glenn Hoddle has questioned the fitness of star striker Harry Kane.
England captain Kane is currently well ahead in the race to win the Golden Boot for most goals at this summers tournament in Russia with 6 crucial strikes for his Country. However, Hoddle has revealed that after watching the Spurs striker closely during the Three Lions last two games he is worried that the 24-year-old may be carrying an injury.
“I’m a little bit worried about Harry Kane,” Hoddle said on talkSPORT.
“I watched Kane in the second half and extra-time against Colombia and in the second-half against Sweden, and I hope he’s not carrying a knock.
“He looked absolutely shattered. There wasn’t a run in him.
“I’m just hoping he’s recuperated really well for this one.”
England will face Croatia tonight in their first semi-final since 1990 and if they emerge victorious they will face France in the World Cup final next Sunday in Moscow.
