England forward and captain Harry Kane will undergo tests after being hit hard on his right ankle following the match against Iran for the England national football team's first match at the 2022 World Cup. Kane complained of a problem with his ankle after a tackle against an opponent around 50' but was replaced only fifteen minutes from the end of the game by Callum Wilson. He limped off but manager Gareth Southgate reassured everyone after the game. "I think Harry is fine. He looked like a bad move, but he kept playing. We replaced him because we felt we could afford him at that point in the match," he said. England led 5-1 when the captain came out and eventually won 6-2. In case of victory against the United States, held back by Wales (1-1) on the first day of Group B, England would mathematically qualify for the round of 16.
