TOTTENHAM Hotspur striker Harry Kane has trained with the first-team squad and will be assessed ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League match against Real Madrid at Wembley.
Kane, who has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season, missed defeats by West Ham United and Manchester United after suffering a minor hamstring strain.

“We’re very confident (he will play)—he’s on the list. We have one more day to assess him but maybe it’s possible he can play tomorrow,” manager Mauricio Pochettino told a news conference on Tuesday.

“I don’t want to say 100 percent because we have one more day. Today and yesterday was good at training. Now it’s with medical staff to take the right decision. He was training with group and was good—at same level as team. We’ll take the best decision for him, first of all, and then for the team.”
Winger Erik Lamela, who has not played for a year due to hip problems, also took part in the training drills. Midfielder Victor Wanyama was Spurs’ only absentee but he will resume training later this week.
