Tottenham are still in the Champions League this season, equalling their record run in the competition.

The last time Spurs featured in the quarter finals of the Champions League was back in 2011 under Harry Redknapp, when they boasted such stars as Van Der Vaart, Modric, and Bale.

It seems unlikely that Tottenham will go on to win the competition this season, although they will surely give it a good go.

However, Harry Kane may yet lift silverware in 2019 as he leads England to a Nations League semi final in the summer.

England made it out of one of the toughest groups to book their place in the finals, and will fancy themselves as favourites to come out on top.

Kane admits that he and his team now feel the expectation and pressure after their heroics in Russia back in the summer, but believes they can taste success this year in the Nations League.

He said (Football London): “We feel that expectation. Before the World Cup that wasn’t there, it’s great that we’ve turned it around.

“We’ve handled it really well since the World Cup. We’re the only team who got into the semi-finals of the World Cup to get through their Nations League group, and we had one of the hardest groups.

“That was big for us, to prove to everyone that it wasn’t a one-off and that this team is really building for something special in the future.

“We can only really prove it on the pitch. Our aim is to win the Nations League, we’re more than capable of doing that if we’re fully focused on our job.”
