Harry Kane has taken to social media to congratulate his Tottenham teammates after the North Londoners thumped Wolfsberger 4-1 in the first-leg of the Europa League round of 32.
Kane did not make the trip to Budapest, with Jose Mourinho confirming after the game that the striker did not feel he was ready to play games in such quick succession after returning from his double ankle injury.
Spurs certainly did not miss their talismanic striker as Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura got on the scoresheet in the first half to put the away side in a commanding position.
Wolfsberger did threaten to get back into the game at the start of the second half as they pulled a goal back from the spot after Moussa Sissoko gave away a penalty.
However, Mourinho’s men quickly wrestled back control of the game and put themselves in the driving seat to qualify for the next round courtesy of a late tap in by substitute Carlos Vinicius.
Here’s what Kane tweeted after the game:
Well played lads. Half the job done very well 💪 https://t.co/hyqSCLZjkx

The fact that we have put the result beyond doubt should hopefully allow Mourinho to rotate his squad in the second leg and give the likes of Son some much-needed rest. Hopefully, the commanding performance and result will restore some confidence in the side ahead of the London derby against the Hammers on Sunday.
