Harry Kane 'ready to go' for Champions League final

Harry Kane 'ready to go' for Champions League final

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino admits a call over whether to start Harry Kane in the Champions League final could prove decisive to their hopes of beating Liverpool.

However, a 20-day gap without a game is a long time for a footballer and it means both sides may take some time to get up to speed in the final, with a long preparation period ahead of a massive game bringing back miserable memories for me.

Llorente intends to wait until Saturday's Champions League clash against Liverpool is over before talking about his future as he looks to continue his top-level career. If we win: fantastic decision. I know they got through and it's unbelievable what they've done, I love Pochettino...

The UEFA Champions' League is one of the biggest competitions in the world and reaching the final is no easy feat.

Pochettino's comment came as it emerged Harry Kane is likely to be fit for the showdown in Madrid after injuring his ankle seven weeks ago.

Instead, it was a milk-fueled celebration for Team Penske on the 50th anniversary of the owner's first entry in the famous race. Pagenaud got him on the restart, though, and the two went back and forth four more times before Pagenaud locked down the win.

Dele Alli and Danny Rose are also expected to overcome minor issues to be in contention so Tottenham could have a fully fit squad to choose from against Liverpool as they prepare for arguably the biggest game in their modern history. As a Liverpool supporter, it sure does scare me. Yet Tottenham will have spent the last three weeks eyeing up their place in history and as we saw in last season's Champions League final, the unexpected can happen on a night when the stakes are so high.

"But it's actually backfired, if that is the reason, in that two English teams are there".

"My mother said to me, "You are a llorona" - a person who cries often and a lot", he said.

However, Pochettino moved to allay supporters' concerns as he reassured them their star player should play some part in the match at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1.

The Argentine added: "We're going to win if we're strong like a team".
