Gareth Southgate ready to risk Jose Mourinho’s wrath over Harry Kane after injury scare

Harry Kane sustained an injury scare prior to England’s match against Belgium and Tottenham had requested that he return to the club but it was rejected by Gareth Southgate

Gareth Southgate is risking the wrath of Jose Mourinho as he plans to start Harry Kane against Denmark on Wednesday.

England managed to beat Belgium on Sunday without the services of their captain.

Kane was absent from the starting XI after it emerged that he had suffered an injury scare in training the night before.

However, Southgate insisted he was feeling the effects of muscle fatigue rather than being injured.

Nevertheless, Tottenham requested that the forward return to the club.

England refused and instead Kane came on against Belgium, in a match that was won 2-1 after a Mason Mount effort in the second-half.
