Harry Kane said he feels fit and ready to go as England prepare for their World Cup qualifier against Scotland on Saturday evening.
The Tottenham striker missed almost two months of action due to an ankle ligament injury he picked up during his side’s 1-0 victory against Sunderland in September
According to Sky Sports, Kane did not take part in full training on Tuesday morning as he and eight other players carried out individual sessions, including teammates Eric Dier, Kyle Walker and Danny Rose.

“I had a second day recovery – doing some strength work and stretching following the game on Sunday. It feels great to be back for Spurs and now being back in the England fold,” Kane told the media in a press conference.
“It’s always special meeting up with England. I missed the last trip which was hard to take. The ankle feels good now and I feel fit.

“It was perfect. I’d been training leading up to the game against Arsenal. It was in the back of my mind that I wanted to be fit enough to be selected [for England].
He made his return to Premier League action on Sunday in the north London derby and scored a second-half goal as his side drew 1-1 with Arsene Wenger’s in-form team.
The 23 year-old has made seven appearances this season and has already netted three league goals and grabbed an assist despite missing 10 fixtures.
Kane has scored five goals in 17 international appearances since making his debut against Lithuania on March 27th 2015 but has not found the net for his country since May when he scored in the 2-1 victory against Turkey.
