Football 19/8/2021 – Pacos De Ferreira v Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Kane will not play for Tottenham in Thursday’s Europa Conference League play-off first leg against Pacos de Ferreira.

The England striker, who reportedly wants to leave the club, was not part of the group who flew to Portugal on Wednesday for the game.

Kane, 28, also missed Sunday’s 1-0 win over Manchester City, the team who are trying to buy him.

He returned to training late after a post-Euro 2020 holiday in the USA.

“He is getting his fitness better each day,” said boss Nuno Espirito Santo. “He is going to work today, he is going to work tomorrow, he’ll join the group on Friday and Saturday we will make a decision [on whether he could face Wolves on Sunday].”

Nuno has confirmed none of the starting XI who beat Manchester City will face Pacos de Ferreira, who finished fifth in the Portuguese league last season.

“It’s important that all of them have real competition,” he said. “The players that started the game on Sunday are not going to be involved.”

The winner of this two-legged tie will go into the group stage of the inaugural third-tier European competition.

Team news

David Wotherspoon has not travelled to Austria as he continues to isolate having been identified as a close contact of someone with Covid-19, but Glenn Middleton is now eligible to play.

The club are still working on getting a visa for Finnish striker Eetu Vertainen.

The Linz side do not represent a significant drop in quality from Galatasaray, given their recent Europa League pedigree.

Last season they finished third in a high-scoring group behind Tottenham and Royal Antwerp, but managed to draw 3-3 with the former at home. The year before, they topped a section containing Sporting of Portugal, and PSV of the Netherlands, before losing to Manchester United in the last 16.

On the plus side for Davidson’s men, LASK have only won one of their opening four Austrian Bundesliga games having finished fourth last term.

Last season’s top scorer Johannes Eggestein is no longer at the club after his loan spell ended, while impressive winger Andreas Gruber is out injured.
