Bayern confirmed Kane had an ankle injury Sunday but did not give details about its severity.

“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,” the club said in a statement.

England host Brazil at Wembley Stadium on March 23, followed by Belgium, also at home, three days later.

Bayern also said full back Raphaël Guerreiro has dropped out of the Portugal squad with a “a minor muscle strain in his left upper thigh.” Portugal are due to play friendlies against Sweden on March 21 and Slovenia on March 26.
