Tiger Fight, October 14th Beijing time tomorrow morning, England will face Denmark. Before the game, Southgate talked about the injuries of Kane and others in an interview.
When asked if Kane can start in this game, Southgate said: "Of course he can. He just felt muscle soreness before. This happens often in athletes, but he didn't get hurt at any time. "
"Before Sunday's game, we asked him to be able to perform at the highest level. But now, with a few days of training, this is no longer a problem."
"He has fully recovered since the end of last week. Just before the last game, he could have started in that game, but there was not enough training time."
"In terms of training load, we have never lost a player (injured a player) because of a training error. We are proud to take care of our players."
"We hope they can adapt and we hope they can perform as well as possible in the game.
After Ben Chilwell and Trippier left the team one after another, England had to reconsider the position of left back. With the absence of these two players, Southgate is likely to choose Saka and Niles, two Arsenal players who are good at attacking from the left.
In response, Southgate also specifically emphasized how Ashley Young adapted to this role during the 2018 World Cup and called on his current players to do the same.
He said: "This is obviously not ideal, but we are used to dealing with these things, you know, it is very difficult to have a team without injuries."
"Everyone’s games are increasing. Now it’s complicated for everyone. We have to be adaptable. When a player leaves the team due to injury, it’s always an opportunity for everyone else."
"For example, we and Ashley Young eventually reached the World Cup semi-finals, he is definitely our key player."
In addition, the position of the England central defender may also change, because Dell has a small hamstring problem, and Cody may take over the position of the Tottenham player.
In addition, Chelsea's James may also start in this game, this will be his first start in England. On the front line, Southgate hopes to start Kane and Rashford together.
