“Always we give advice and information for them to manage, but we’ll never say: ‘You need to do this or that’.

“We have confidence and trust in the national team and all the staff to care and look after our players.

“The staff in the national teams have the quality and capacity to look after players but it’s difficult to stop accidents — it’s football. It’s important for us to trust them and them to trust us.”

Alli has been playing with knee and ankle injuries in recent weeks, while Kane has already played 42 matches for Spurs this season.

They could be joined in the squad by Eric Dier, Kyle Walker, Ryan Mason and Danny Rose, who is back in training after a calf injury.

Pochettino, whose side are five points behind Premier League leaders Leicester, admits his players have a club versus country dilemma with Euro 2016 places up for grabs.
