Tottenham star Michel Vorm on Twitter: I am ready for my European debut tomorrow

Tottenham Hotspur back-up goalkeeper Michel Vorm is ready for action in the Europa League.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Michel Vorm has confirmed he is in line to start in the Europa League against Asteras Tripoli.

The 31-year-old was a summer signing from Swansea City, but has predictably had to play back-up to French international Hugo Lloris.

It remains somewhat of a surprise however, that he has not featured at all in the Europa League for the club to date, even if his Premier League omission was always likely.

This is now set to change, with Vorm confirming via his Twitter feed that he expects to play against the Greek side, who Spurs beat 5-1 at White Hart Lane.

He has made two appearances for the club to date, both in the Capital One Cup.

Vorm is arguably the best back-up goalkeeper in the Premier League, having been first choice for Swansea City in recent seasons. In many ways his signing at Spurs is a case of wasted talent to sit on a bench.

Tomorrow night is a real chance for him to showcase his talent, and try his best to give Mauricio Pochettino some thinking to do, or at least give him peace of mind, that he will never have to use Harry Kane in goal again.
