Tottenham Hotspur will walk out on to the field to take on Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid on Saturday evening in what will be the club’s first ever Champions League final.
The game will be the biggest of their careers for many Spurs stars, all of whom except Toby Alderweireld, are competing in the final of Europe’s most prestigious competition for the first time in their careers.
The Belgian played the final seven minutes and extra time of Atletico Madrid’s defeat to Real Madrid in 2014.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane who is expected to be fit to start the match told UEFA’s official website that it be will a special feeling to walk out on to the pitch on Saturday in the final for the club he has supported since he was a body.
The England international has not kicked a ball in competitive football since suffering a significant ankle injury during the quarter-final first leg victory against Manchester City last month.
Kane said: “There’s no bigger motivation in football. Being the champions of Europe is what every kid dreams about. To be here with this club, a club that I’ve been involved with all my life, is truly something special, and it’s about just giving everything and leaving it all out there.”
The England captain also admitted that he has dreamed about getting his hands on the trophy now that the Lilywhites only find themselves one step away.
He added: “Have I dreamed about lifting the trophy? Yes, of course. I’d be lying if I said that I hadn’t. Of course, it’s something that you think about and it’s something you dream about.
“It’s a strange feeling now because we’re one game away and we know it’s within our reach. The most important thing is to focus on the game. Let’s hope that this dream will come true.”

Even though we are less than four days away from the final, it does feel really strange to be in with a shot of the big prize. The game will be likely decided by moments of individual quality and Kane’s presence will be crucial for Spurs if they wish to lift the trophy for the very first time.
