Harry Kane pulls out of England squad

Tottenham's captain Harry Kane and team mate Harry Winks have both pulled out of the England squad to face Germany and Brazil due to injury. West Brom midfielder Jake Livermore has been called up as cover for Winks, as manager Gareth Southgate is deciding whether to call up further attacking cover for Kane.
The Tottenham pair were assessed by their club's medical team on Monday and after discussions with Southgate, it was decided they would not feature in the upcoming friendlies. Winks sustained a twisted ankle during Spurs' 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday, coming off at half-time, while Kane was substituted late in the second half after having gone down in the early stages of the game.
Kane had also been recovering from a hamstring injury which forced him to miss his side's 1-0 defeat to Manchester United on October 28, but following Sunday's win his manager Mauricio Pochettino was confident Kane would be fit enough to join England for the upcoming friendlies.
