Kane resumes training ahead of Real Madrid clash

Two of Europe's most prolific goalscorers will again go head-to-head at Wembley on Wednesday but, with Kane expected to be recovered from the hamstring injury that forced him out of the defeat against Manchester United on Saturday, Vertonghen paid his team-mate a glowing compliment.

"What I'm most annoyed about is not killing the game off when we had the chance to do it", the coach said in a news conference after Girona snapped Real's record run of 13 consecutive away wins over the course of two seasons. Today and yesterday was good at training. "Now he is with the medical staff to try to take the right decision because it is important to take the right decision for tomorrow".

They may have missed out on Tottenham's last league game, but do not expect the pair to be on the bench for long, and it will be interesting to see how they respond if they are called upon on Wednesday evening.

"We all know how football works, sometimes you are going to lose matches and it's obviously frustrating".

"Yes, we are going to be fearless".

Will Jose Mourinho make an attacking ploy in this one I wonder?

The loss to Girona: "I don't need to talk about Real Madrid". They'll hopefully be more expansive than their recent displays. It is so important to play with freedom and to enjoy football.

However, this is a really tough game. But we can also beat Real Madrid without him. "If you show fear it's hard to show your quality". I think we did very well. My feeling is good. They can score at any moment.

But with Madrid defending the Champions League title they have won in each of the last two seasons, an unfazed Zidane believes his team will not be affected by that surprise reverse.

An exam against Real Madrid. We can only analyse the game they have played in the Champions League and 15 days ago in the Bernabéu. In our opinion, this is not a flaw but something that happened. "We can't let (the United defeat) knock us back".
