The latest against Maccabi Haifa showed why he is in such high demand following a hat-trick in a 7-2 win.

After the win helped Spurs earn a place in the group stage of the Europa League, Mourinho hinted to Southgate, who he mistakenly called Gary, that he does not expect Kane to feature against Wales.

'What I can promise to my friend Steve Holland and for Gary (sic) not to be jealous. For my friend Gary, I can promise that until the end of the season I don't play Harry Kane one minute of any friendly match,' Mourinho said.

Gareth Southgate will name his latest England squad on Thursday evening as Tottenham prepare to face Maccabi Haifa in their third game in five days. Jose Mourinho has pleaded for England to treat Harry Kane and his worn-out Tottenham stars with understanding and respect.

Jose Mourinho has raised the doomsday scenario of Harry Kane not playing for Tottenham Hotspur again this season and left England manager Gareth Southgate facing a nervous wait over his captain ahead of this summer’s European Championships.

'His match was a fundamental match for us. A match that means a few million pounds and means that we are in a group phase of a competition that we have ambitions.'

Mourinho has been desperate for Spurs to bring in a striker to helped reduce the workload on his star striker, with Benfica's Carlos Vinicius edging closer to a loan move to north London - he is expected to undergo a medical on Friday.

However the Tottenham manager remained coy on the prospect of a deal being completed.

Talking points from England’s 6-1 World Cup win over Panama, also including Jesse Lingard’s quality and a dilemma against Belgium.

Gareth Southgate called on Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood to use their exile from England duty as a time for ‘reflection’ after leaving them out of his 30-man squad for the side’s Nations League matches with Belgium and Denmark.

'No, I want you to ask me that question when it's confirmed,' he said when asked about the deal. 'Nobody told me it's done so I'm going to respect the situation, respect the player, respect Benfica and wait a little bit more.

'Next time we see each other maybe I'm in conditions to answer.'

Tottenham's victory in the Europa League play-off round also saw two goals from Giovani Lo Celso, while Lucas Moura and Dele Alli were also on the scoresheet.

But it was Eric Dier, Steven Bergwijn and Toby Alderweireld who Mourinho singled out for praise, with the trio having completed their second round of 90 minutes in just three days following the Carabao Cup win over Chelsea on Tuesday.

'What Eric Dier, Bergwijn and Toby did is not human,' he said. 'It's proven, scientifically proven, every sport scientist person knows that what they did shouldn't be done.

'To play 180 minutes in three days shouldn't be allowed. These three guys did it. I know that some others played also until their limit, but we managed because we have a good squad and we have a squad with different options.

'We managed to share players in these matches and we managed to go through two knockout competitions in the Carabao and Europa League, but we could have gone out. Job done. I am really happy for the job done.'
