Bournemouth v Spurs LIVE STREAM

Harry Kane's 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign could be in jeopardy after the Tottenham Hotspur striker suffered an ankle ligament injury during a 4-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Daily Mail says Winks fears his ankle problem could rule him out of the World Cup.

The Mirror claim on their website that the 24-year-old hotshot, who has scored 35 goals in his 39 appearances across all competitions this season, has been ruled out of action until May with ankle ligament damage, in a similar injury to the one suffered back in 2016 where he was out of action for seven weeks.

As it stands, Kane would miss Spurs' FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea on Saturday, a semi-final if they progress and four league fixtures after the global break - a potential top four decider against Chelsea and further clashes with Stoke, Manchester City and Brighton.

Adrian Kajumba of the Daily Mirror reported Tuesday Kane has been ruled out "until May and faces a desperate battle to be fully fit" for this summer's tournament in Russian Federation.

But, depending on their FA Cup progress and the dates fixtures get rearranged for, he could have two bonus opportunities to build up his fitness ahead of the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate is set to name his squad for this month's global friendly matches against Holland and Italy, but Kane will be absent for both ahead of this summer's showpiece.

Both Tottenham and England will be wary of Kane's previous history of ankle injuries.

England will face Tunisia, Belgium and Panama in the World Cup group stage in Russian Federation.
