The fact that all four teams who will be contesting in the Champions League and the Europa League final are Premier League teams might be great news for English football but it isn’t good news for the England national team.
This is because England have an all-important UEFA Nations League semifinal against the Netherlands on the 6th of June, just five days after the Champions League final.
As many as 10 players from Gareth Southgate’s squad could feature in the final in Istanbul, and so they will only be available to train with England three days before the game against the Dutch.
The Daily Mail reported a few days ago that all of Liverpool’s and Tottenham’s England stars have made it clear to Southgate that they want to be considered for selection against Holland.
Now Sky Sports News have claimed that Gareth Southgate will name England captain Harry Kane as part of his squad for the Nations League despite the fact that the striker hasn’t featured for Spurs since the 20th of April after suffering another ankle injury.

Spurs fans will be concerned that Kane might be pushed too hard by club and country yet again, and thus not given an opportunity to recover properly.
However, these are exactly the sort of games that the Tottenham striker will want to be involved in. Given that he is such a vital player for club and country, he makes a massive difference to both Spurs’and England’s chances.
