The boy Kane is set to return from a minor hamstring injury in this evening’s game against Real Madrid, providing a timely boost for a side coming off the back of two consecutive defeats.

Harry trained with the squad on Monday and yesterday, offering an A-okay sign to photographers who enquired as to whether he would be fit for the Wembley showdown.

Mauricio Pochettino was a little more circumspect, refusing to guarantee Kane would start, the general feeling is that he has sufficiently recovered from the niggle sustained against Liverpool 10 days ago to make his re-entrance:

“We are very confident. He is on the list. We have one more day to assess him, but I think it can be possible for him to be available to play. He is now training with the group and was good, at the same level of the team.

“But I don’t want to say 100 per cent, because we have one more day. Today and yesterday were good with the training, and now it’s with the medical staff and everyone to try to take the right decision.”

Kane’s absence or inclusion is likely to be as important as how well Real Madrid play. This may sound a rather excitable thing to say, however Spurs without Kane against one of the finest sides on planet Earth is a fundamentally bad idea.

Fingers crossed the lad is ready to return.

    I wouldn’t risk him, we only have to beat Apoel at home and we have 10 points, the most that Dortmund can make, which would include winning against Real , we will make the k o out stage so the game isn’t as important as people make out

      Is there not benefit in winning the group? I am not sure I would risk him either, that’s said, beating Apoel but losing to Real and Dortmund would mean we rely on Dortmund to lose one of their last 3. If we beat Real though, we are through, regardless.
