Bayern Munich say Harry Kane suffered a left ankle injury on Saturday but will still join up with England for international duty.

Kane scored against Darmstadt in the Bundesliga but was substituted late on after going down in the goalmouth as he stretched to reach the ball.

Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel said the striker "slipped and fell into the net and twisted his ankle".

England host Brazil on 23 March in a friendly and Belgium three days later.

"The striker has still travelled to international duty with England and will be treated by the team doctors there, in close consultation with the FC Bayern medical department," said a statement from the German club.

Kane took his tally to 31 league goals with his effort against Darmstadt as he set a new record for the most goals in a Bundesliga debut campaign, overtaking the previous mark set by Uwe Seeler (30) for Hamburg in 1963-64 - which was the first season of the Bundesliga.

"When Harry goes off it's never a good sign because Harry never goes off when there's still goals to score," added Tuchel after the match.

Kane is the England's record goalscorer with 62 goals in 89 appearances.
