Harry Kane revealed he hopes to be fit for Tottenham’s Champions League final against Liverpool after watching his side beat Ajax in a thrilling semi-final.

Kane, who has not played since April 9 due to an ankle injury, was at the Johan Cruyff Arena as Lucas Moura scored a last-gasp winner to complete an incredible comeback, booking Spurs’ place in the final on away goals after a 3-3 draw on aggregate.

The England striker ran onto the pitch at the full-time whistle to celebrate with his elated team-mates and manager.

The final takes place in Madrid on June 1 and Kane is hoping that he will play a part.

“Hopefully [I will be fit in time],” Kane said. “Rehab is going well so far. I start straight line running this week.

“So far so good, we will see. If it carries on like it should then I hope to be, but there’s still a few weeks to go.”

Spurs looked to heading out of the Champions League as they trailed Ajax 3-0 on aggregate at half-time of the second leg in Amsterdam, but a second-half hat-trick from Lucas saw Spurs reach the final in thrilling style.

“I am a fan first and foremost, I know how much it means to the club and everyone involved with the club, the players, the manager, the staff, the chairman, everyone, and as a player I am looking at the game and thinking what would I be doing if I was out there and things like that.

“The lads dug deep and showed character, heart and passion and that’s all we ask for and it was an incredible game.”
