The England captain had blood gushing from his mouth as the medics held him up in a seated position as they checked on him.
However, after the usual medical checks to ensure it was not a more serious injury, the Tottenham man was able to continue his involvement in the game, a crucial fixture in England’s Nations League campaign in a bid to avoid relegation.
Kane could not make a difference though as England fell to a 1-0 defeat after Giacomo Raspadori’s 68th minute strike.
