Football’s coming home. Maybe.

We’ve had this before, haven’t we? First Becks, then Rooney, and now Kane giving us kittens before a major international tournament we almost certainly have no chance of winning, but still. It’s about the hope isn’t it.

And it’s the news update we’ve been anxiously waiting for, whether our slick-haired hitman can fire us into the latter stages so we can go out the noble way, the only way we know how: to the Portuguese or the Germans in a heartbreaking penalty shootout.

Tottenham have provided a fresh injury update after he limped off during their 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday.

The frontman collided with goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and injured the same ankle that kept him out for 2 months and 14 games last season and England supporters everywhere started screaming into their pillows.

Spurs tweeted this afternoon that he has damaged his lateral ligaments in his right ankle. He’s expected to return to first team training next month. Collective sighs of relief can be heard nationwide.
