There has always been debate over whether football fans put clubs before country.
In many cases, supporters get anxious when their club’s top players go on international duty during a season due to the possibility of injuries.
On this occasion, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane may miss out on England’s next two fixtures due to fitness concerns.
The Mirror reports that the 24-year-old, as well as teammate Harry Winks, could miss the Three Lions’ friendlies against Germany and Brazil after the pair were substituted during Sunday’s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Winks has an ankle knock, while Kane has been dealing with a hamstring injury that he initially suffered against Liverpool last month.
Kane’s fitness was the talking point among Tottenham fans in the comments left under the striker’s post-match tweet.

Plenty of supporters are hoping that the forward withdraws from the England squad in order to be fresh for the North London derby on November 18.
Fake an injury and drop out of the internationals IMHO, Harry.
