Harry Kane: England captain fit and ‘looking forward’ to Euros, says Gareth Southgate

Captain Harry Kane has recovered from a back injury and is “looking forward” to leading England into Euro 2024, says manager Gareth Southgate.

Kane, 30, was substituted in the second half of Bayern Munich’s Champions League semi-final second-leg defeat at Real Madrid a fortnight ago, then missed the final two Bundesliga games of the season.

Outgoing Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel said Kane was suffering with a “complete blockage” and was struggling to move.

However, Southgate says his main striker is “pretty much clear now”.

“He is quite relaxed about it. I think a sensible decision was taken not to push for the last game there,” Southgate added.

“Back problems can just happen – travel, whatever else – but it is not something we are concerned about at this moment in time.

“Our understanding of it is that it is something that is pretty much clear now.”
