According to a report from Sky Sports, the England National Team is thinking about Harry Kane to play against the Netherlands in June.
The injury that Harry Kane suffered against Manchester City during the Champions League quarterfinals jeopardized his England role.
The Three Lions are about to face the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League semifinals on June 6 and Kane’s inclusion was a major doubt until today.
The boss has been monitoring Harry Kane’s recovery and there is a major opportunity for him to even play the upcoming Champions League final against Liverpool.
According to the information, the player is already making the recovery process at the gym and he might even play a full half of the match in Madrid.
This came as great news for both Tottenham Hotspur and the England National Team, as Harry Kane is considered their most important player.
Southgate will continue to watch over the situation with the striker and he will give him more time to make a full recovery.
We are still nearly three weeks away from that European final between the two Premier League squads.

Southgate will publish a preliminary call-up list.
According to the information from Sky Sports, Gareth Southgate isn’t even thinking about a possible replacement for Kane yet.
In fact, he is already making his plans to include him on the call-up list that he will publish a few weeks before the match against Holland takes place.
We can’t forget that the UEFA Champions League final between Liverpool and Tottenham will happen on June the 1st.
The UEFA Nations League between England and the Netherlands is taking place five days after the continental final in Madrid.
The international match between the two nations will take place in Portugal, which was agreed when the Nations League format was initially created.
The Nations League’s final stages will take place in the country of the host nations, which is Portugal for this first-ever edition of the tournament.
The other two National Teams that made it to the semifinals of this tournament are Portugal and Switzerland, who will play their match at FC Porto’s Do Dragao Stadium.
But the main focus will remain in that exciting match between Holland and England.
Harry Kane will be named in Gareth Southgate's England squad for the Nations League finals tomorrow, with hope he will be fit to play v Netherlands on June 6

The rest of the calendar for the Three Lions.
The Sky Sports report also detailed the dates in which the players who will be a part of this expedition will join the squad.
There are some competitions that are still going to be played, all the players involved won’t report to the squad until May 27.
The Bundesliga and the FA Cup final are some of these competitions, this means that Jadon Sancho, the Manchester City, and the Watford players won’t report until then.
Given that both European finals include English squads, the players who are part of these matches at the end of May and the beginning of June won’t join until June the 3rd.
Though it won’t be until June 4 when all the 23 players from the final list train together ahead of the match in Portugal.
Gareth Southgate expects Harry Kane to be fully fit for that day, he may already have a few minutes of playing time in the Champions League final by that date.
All the England fans are crossing their fingers, they wish Harry Kane to be completely recovered by the time the Three Lions have to play against the powerful Netherlands’ side.
