Dortmund's flight delayed as Jadon Sancho forgets his passport

13 February 2019

Borussia Dortmund's flight to London for their Champions League encounter against Tottenham on Wednesday was delayed after England winger Jadon Sancho forgot his passport.

Dortmund have arrived in England and will train at Wembley on Tuesday before the first leg of the last-16 tie. To do so, he had to quickly return home, pick up his passport and get back to the airport.

Spurs scraped through the group stage after finishing level on points with third-placed Inter Milan, progressing due to a better head-to-head record against the Italian side.

Instead, injury to Harry Kane left Mauricio Pochettino short of options and Llorente was retained to provide much needed depth and experience to a shallow and inexperienced front line in north London.

Just because you're a former first lady doesn't mean you're a " real " celebrity - at least, not in your mom's eyes. It appears Michelle Obama received a reality check from her mom following her appearance at the Grammys.

Speaking about Rose in his pre-match press conference, Pochettino said: "For tomorrow it's impossible to start from the beginning".

'I really believe we can win every game we play, but we know this competition is so tough. With all respect to the team we're playing, we always believe we can beat anyone'.

Tottenham say Rose is still being treated for a wound on his shin and will only be on the bench if he is available at all, meaning a possible start for Jan Vertonghen on the left against their German opponents.

However, Spurs are also sweating over the fitness of Eric Dier and Erik Lamela after both players missed the 3-1 victory over Leicester.
