Hugo Lloris is in contention to start Tottenham’s game against Sheriff Tiraspol after he took part in training this morning.
Goalkeeper Lloris was knocked unconscious in an accidental collision with Everton striker Romelu Lukaku in Sunday’s goalless draw at Goodison Park.
Controversially, Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas allowed Lloris to remain on the field of play for the remaining 12 minutes of the game.
The France goalkeeper was given the all-clear after a brain scan, and he took part in the training session at Spurs’ HQ in Enfield on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old will therefore be in contention to start for the visit of the Moldovan champions in Thursday’s Europa League Group K clash at White Hart Lane.
There was a strong backlash against Villas-Boas’ decision to not substitute Lloris.
FIFA’s chief medical officer, the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) and international players’ union FIFPro all condemned the decision.
But Spurs insist the player was OK to continue playing after extensive medical tests.
Tottenham have won all three of their group games so far, and another victory will see them through to the knockout stages for a second successive year.
