England have been handed a massive blow ahead of Euro 2020 after Surgeon, Chris Wilson revealed that Harry Kane could only return to action after six months.
Tottenham Hotspur revealed that their skipper will be out of action till April after he went under the knife on Saturday to repair a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring.
This week however Jose Mourinho hinted at Kane not being available till next season after he admitted they had underestimated the extent of his injury.
In an interview with PA news agency, Dr. Wilson who has performed the surgery 75 times revealed that Kane is ruled out for six months, "I would expect it to be six months before he could return to action.
"If the repair was good and sound, the first six weeks he will be nursing the repair and doing very little. Six to 12 weeks, providing everything was OK, he will be doing basic strengthening exercises.
"At three months you would start a normal hamstring rehabilitation that you would do if you got a tear in the middle of the muscle.
"If I was talking to a top-level footballer I would want to manage their expectations and say I wouldn't anticipate them being fit and playing normally in a game for six months following the surgery.
"If it was me I would say aim for getting fit for pre-season training. I am aware in Harry Kane's case they have been saying April or May - I have to say I would be very surprised."
The European Championship is slated from 12 June to 12 July, leaving Kane no chance of making the squad according to Dr. Wilson's estimations.
