Harry Kane suffered an ankle injury in the England Under-21 game against Wales on Monday and as a result will miss out on the trip to Toulon with the Three Lions Under-21 team.

The 20-year-old replaced Tom Ince in the 79th minute at the Liberty Stadium, but suffered an ankle sprain, which will keep him out of the Under-21 assignment at Toulon.

England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate was a disappointed with Kane’s injury and said the Tottenham striker was crucial to his plan for the impending Under-21 assignment.

Kane had an impressive season at White Hart Lane and scored some important goals for Spurs towards the end of the season.


"It’s a real shame because Harry has been extremely patient for his chance and I was looking forward giving him some of the prestigious games in Toulon", Southgate told the FA.

"He’s warranted that opportunity and has had a super finish to the season with Tottenham so it’s disappointing for us and for him."

England Under-21 registered a comfortable 3-1 win against Wales Under-21 to consolidate their position at the top of Group 1 of the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification round.
