England Skipper Makes Playing Return

Last updated : 23 August 2021 By Three Lions

Harry Kane came off the bench in Tottenham's victory at Wolves on Sunday as the talk over his future continues ahead of the transfer deadline.

After an extended break following his Euro 2020 efforts, the England skipper received a warm welcome from travelling supporters at Molineux as a potential move to Manchester City looks set to dominate the football news agenda for another week.

HIs return to playing action will be welcomed by Gareth Southgate as he prepares to name a squad for the three upcoming World Cup qualifiers, away matches in Hungary and Poland sandwiched by a home tie with Andorra.

The majority of Southgate's summer squad have made positive returns to action in the opening weeks of the Premier League season, Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling scoring for Manchester City against Norwich at the weekend in a game in which Kyle Walker also impressed.

Reece James was widely praised for his performance for Chelsea at Arsenal on Sunday, Mason Mount also enjoying his role playing off new signing Romelu Lukaku.

For those not involved in the summer but who may be in the manager's thoughts, Danny Ings has made a fast start to life at Aston Villa and Tammy Abraham an immediate impression on his competitive debut for Jose Mourinho's AS Roma.
