Here are your latest Newcastle United evening headlines for Wednesday, November 23.
England captain Harry Kane looks set to play a part in Friday's clash with the USA despite suffering an injury scare in the 6-2 win over Iran. The Tottenham striker took a knock to the ankle before being replaced by Newcastle United's Callum Wilson in the second-half of the World Cup opener for the Three Lions.
Kane was due to undergo a scan on Wednesday as England chiefs worried over a potential Qatar setback. However, the forward looks to have escaped relatively unscathed and England are now hopeful he will be in action later this week.
“I think he is good, probably just a little bit sore,” England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford told the media on Wednesday. “I’m sure he is fine, he was out on the grass with us today which is good. He is our captain.”

Garang Kuol knows he must work hard if he's going to try to reach the level of Kylian Mbappe and the rest of the French squad after Australia's 4-1 defeat at the World Cup. The new Newcastle United signing came off the bench in the 73rd minute for a taste of the action.
The highly sought after 18-year-old is being tipped for a big future, but revealed the game against France was somewhat of an eye opener. "You could see the level that they're at," Kuol told YahooSport afterwards. "They're 6ft 4in people who are as quick as me, so there was a big difference between me and some of those players.
"Only hard work will get me to that level. I think it was a good taste to see the level the players are at. Some play in the Premier League, some play in the Champions League, so it was good to get that taste of the level."
