Tottenham star Harry Kane was at the centre of a red card call on Sunday when he had his ankle trodden on by Fenerbache centre-back Martin Skrtel during England’s 1-0 victory over Slovakia in their opening 2018 World Cup qualification clash.
Skrtel stamped on Kane’s ankle and was subsequently sent off but the Spurs striker luckily was not seriously injured.

Kane revealed his ankle does feel fine but that he will have to undergo tests to determine if there was any damage.
“The ankle is okay now,” Kane was quoted as saying by Sky Sports. “I will have a check on it and see if it’s fully okay, but there were a few challenges that I felt could have earned him a yellow card but it didn’t come.
“It was just a matter of time, it was a silly thing for him to do because he was on a yellow. The ref has seen it and I think it deserved another yellow card.”
Tottenham will be hoping for Kane to return in time for the Stoke City clash at the 365 Stadium.
