At one point, Gazza slowed down and looked into the camera before claiming: ‘I’m ready for the match! Get it on!’.
He captioned the tweet: ‘Nice morning run, just gym & 9 a side tonight ready for the big game Saturday xxxx LOVE GAZZA xxxx.’
Speculation linking Gazza with a part in the game arose when he tweeted last week: ‘If there’s a game at spurs im up 4 it’.
It also emerged that Tottenham are interested in a reunion as part of their two test events for the new 62,000-seater stadium.
Spurs’ Under-18 side officially opened the venue with a 3-1 over Southampton last Sunday. A legends side will play Inter Forever on Saturday to complete the testing phase.

Gascoigne’s inclusion is likely to be dependent on his health. He has endured a well-documented struggle with alcoholism.
In January he pleaded not guilty to a charge of sexual assault at Teesside Crown Court.
Gascoigne will join the likes of Jurgen Klinsmann, Robbie Keane, Rafael van der Vaart, Darren Anderton and Dimitar Berbatov as star attractions for the event.
Former players Allan Nielsen, Stephen Carr, David Howells, Erik Thorstvedt, Neil Sullivan, Teemu Tainio, Mark Falco, Pascal Chimbonda, Micky Hazard, Chris Perry, Paul Stalteri and Nayim are all involved.
While the inclusion of Edgar Davids, Teddy Sheringham, Chris Waddle, Ledley King, Jermaine Jenas and David Ginola is expected to be confirmed soon.
Gary Mabbutt and Clive Allen will manage the side.
