Victor Wanyama has been included in the Tottenham Hotspur squad to face Olympiacos in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday evening.

Wanyama made the trip to Greece with Mauricio Pochettino squad who will kick off their group B campaign with a tricky game away.

The Kenyan captain was linked with a move away from the London side, but he remained after the deal fell through. The Harambee Stars midfielder said to have prepared a loan move while Spurs wanted him sold on a permanent deal to to Belgian side Club Brugge.

But the Argentine manager who is grappling with injuries in his squad summoned the former Southampton and Celtic defensive midfielder for the clash at the Karaiskaki Stadium.

Serge Aurier and Danny Rose both missed the trip same as Giovani Lo Celso, Juan Foyth who are both nursing injuries.

Wanyama has not played for Spurs this campaign and with the rare chance coming his side after he fell down the pecking order following the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and the availability of youthful  Oliver Skipp.

While Wanyama is currently struggling to force his way back to Pochettino’s squad, across the border, Tanzanian captain Mbwana Samatta wrote history when he became the first Tanzanian to play and score in a Eufa Champions League match.

The Taifa Stars skipper shrugged off a knee injury to score in his Genk’s 6-2 defeat against Salzburg on Tuesday night.
