Rising Tottenham star called into squad for clash against CSKA Moscow
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Cameron Carter-Vickers is in the Tottenham squad for their Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night.
The 18-year-old defender made his debut in Spurs’ 5-0 demolition of Gillingham in the League Cup on Wednesday night as he is gradually introduced into the first-team fold.
Spurs defender Ben Davies uploaded an image on to his personal Twitter account on Monday morning that showed Carter-Vickers with Michel Vorm, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld and Davies himself at the airport as the squad prepared to fly to Moscow.

It is Carter-Vickers’ second taste of Champions League football as the rising star was an unused substitute in the club’s 2-1 defeat to Monaco a fortnight ago.
The teenager, who manager Mauricio Pochettino called a potential great last week ahead of his debut against Gillingham, has been on the bench for six of the team’s eight matches this season, as well as starting last Wednesday.
