Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has declared himself “very confident” Harry Kane will be fit enough to face Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Kane took part in training on Tuesday morning and showed no visible sign of the hamstring injury that kept him out of Saturday’s defeat at Manchester United.

Spurs have confirmed their star man will be ‘assessed’ in the build-up to Wednesday’s game, but Pochettino says the striker is more than likely to be ready to play at Wembley
“We’re very confident,” the Tottenham boss said.
“He’s on the list. Maybe it’s possible for him to play but I don’t want to say 100 per cent.
“He trained today but it is important we make the right decision.”
Kane’s return at Wembley would represent a massive boost for Tottenham given the 24-year-old has scored five goals in his three European games so far.
