Nations League: Injured Spurs duo Harry Kane, Harry Winks included in Gareth Southgate's provisional England squad for finals

London: England captain Harry Kane was included by Gareth Southgate in his provisional squad for next month's Nations League finals despite facing a race against time to recover from injury.

Kane has not played since injuring ankle ligaments in the first leg of Tottenham's Champions League quarter-final with Manchester City on 11 April.

However, he is hopeful of being involved in Tottenham's first ever Champions League final against Liverpool on 1 June.

England face the Netherlands in the semi-finals of the inaugural Nations League in Guimaraes, Portugal on 6 June.

Southgate will have little time to prepare for that match with players from Spurs and Liverpool, as well as Chelsea not joining up with the squad until 3 June.

Southampton's Nathan Redmond is the new face in Southgate's provisional 27-man squad, while Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi miss out due to injury.
