There wasn’t any flashpoint which suggested that Vertonghen had picked up a knock, and the Belgian spoke about his injury on Dutch TV show Van Gils and Gasten (h/t Metro):

“My ankle is swollen. I played the second half on adrenaline. I couldn’t put weight on my foot after the game.”

The 32-year-old has been excellent at the back for us this season and was hopeful of returning for the final on 1 June.

“The first tests were positive, but I will know soon if I‘ll make the final. I’m hopeful.”
