Can these players step up for England if Harry Kane is injured?

Friday 5th October 2018

Jamie Vardy, Marcus Rashford, Danny Welbeck and, of course, Harry Kane. They comprised Gareth Southgate's strike force in Russia. Kane won the World Cup Golden Boot, scoring six goals in the Three Lions’ semifinal run. 

Problem? He was the sole England striker in the competition to find the back of the net.

Question? What other options are available to Southgate to relieve the scoring pressure on Kane?

It's hardly a new problem for the England manager or his predecessors. So, what, if anything, changed? Who can the England manager rely upon now to provide goals in the Tottenham talisman's absence? Here are some answers to both questions.
