Harry Kane injury: Tottenham star out for MONTHS, World Cup dream in jeopardy
Harry Kane will be out for two months with an ankle injury and could miss the World Cup

Tottenham's Premier League leading scorer damaged ankle ligaments for the third time in 18 months in Sunday's 4-1 win at Bournemouth.

A Tottenham source revealed the injury is as serious as the one that kept him out for seven weeks from September 2016.

Kane was expected to be ruled out until the end of April and still have just a handful of games left to try to regain fitness ahead of England's World Cup campaign in Russia.

He was injured when his right foot got trapped under Cherries keeper Asmir Begovic.

He left the ground on crutches and had to postpone a scan due to the amount of swelling.

A long lay-off will also seriously hurt Spurs who have already lost him for Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea.

He will then miss the semi-finals if they win and four league fixtures after the international break, a potential top four decider against Chelsea and further clashes with Stoke, Manchester City and Brighton.

Kane will also have to sit out England's two friendlies this month against Holland and Italy, with manager Gareth Southgate naming his squad on Thursday.

Both Southgate and Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be praying Kane's recovery is more in line with when he hurt his ankle for the second time, against Millwall last year, but recovered much faster than expected.

Tottenham return to action against Swansea in the FA Cup at the weekend without their talisman.
