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.

Kane injured his right ankle - the third time he's injured the same ankle in a year - in the 24th minute of Tottenham's 4-1 win at Bournemouth on Sunday.

Tottenham's Harry Kane sustains an injury as he is challenged by Bournemouth's Asmir Begovic scoring a goal which is later disallowed.

Tottenham Hotspur fans have been holding their breath since Sunday (seriously, breathe!) as they wait for news concerning Harry Kane's ankle.

Remember those faint World Cup hopes we had, yeah?

Official confirmation is still yet to come from Spurs on the period of time that Kane will likely miss but the Daily Mirror claims that he will be ruled out until the end of April.

In terms of his club campaign, Kane is set to miss an FA Cup quarter-final against Swansea City, as well as league matches against Chelsea, Stoke City, leaders Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

And the north Londoners believe the injury is closer in seriousness to the first time he suffered the setback and missed seven weeks from September 2016, than the last one when he was out for just over three.

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.

Spurs planned to send him for a scan on the injury on Monday but that was put back as his ankle was too swollen to assess properly.
