Tottenham confirm 26-man squad travelling to Madrid for Champions League final

Tottenham have confirmed the 26-man squad heading to Madrid on Wednesday, as they prepare to take on Liverpool in the Champions League final.

The Reds will meet a familiar foe at the Wanda Metropolitano after Spurs booked their place in the final via an away-goal victory over Ajax in the semis.

They did so without leading goalscorer Harry Kane, with Lucas Moura the hero in Amsterdam, but the England captain has been passed fit to fly to Spain following an ankle injury.

Kane and Moura are among 26 players named by Mauricio Pochettino on Wednesday, with Jan Vertonghen, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks also appearing to have recovered from various issues.

Goalkeeper Alfie Whiteman and midfielders George Marsh and Oliver Skipp make the cut from Spurs’ academy, with both sides able to name 12 players on their substitutes’ bench.

Ben Davies also travels despite being left out of the Wales squad for next month’s Euro qualifiers against Croatia and Hungary due to an upcoming hernia surgery.

There are no other surprises in Tottenham‘s squad, with Jurgen Klopp predicting “a more lively final than we witnessed in the past” due to a 20-day break between games.

“For Tottenham it was for sure good, a lot of injuries [to rehab], but we had as well with Bobby especially, he could use the time between his injury and the final,” he explained on Tuesday.

“Keep the rhythm, do the right things in training—we do that a lot, even in pre-season.

“We had a game last Saturday, an internal game, just to keep the rhythm, do different things, and it was good, it was fine.

“But in the end, a final, with the things we did, we and Tottenham, we’ll all be fresher than three weeks ago on the last matchday.”
