Kane: What a way to finish at the Lane

Harry Kane was thrilled to score what proved to be the last winning goal at White Hart Lane as Tottenham marked the end of an era with a 2-1 win against Manchester United.

The final game in White Hart Lane’s 118-year history saw Spurs secure their highest finish since the 1960s and end the Premier League campaign unbeaten at home.

Victor Wanyama headed the hosts into an early lead and Kane added a second after the break, before Wayne Rooney scored the last goal at the ground.

Kane told Sky Sports: “What a way to finish. We wanted to win so badly in our last game. (I’d thought before the game that) to score the winning goal or something like that would be special, and for it to happen is just amazing.

“We’re disappointed after losing out on the title again, but we’re growing and getting better. Third, second and hopefully next season we’ll be number one.”

Tottenham are heading to Wembley next season ahead of moving into the new ground on the same site as White Hart Lane.

While they remained unbeaten at White Hart Lane this term, they won just one of their five games at Wembley this season – four ‘home’ games in Europe and the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea.

Midfielder Dele Alli said: “You hear a lot about it not really being good for us, but I think what happened in the Champions League was not down to Wembley – it was down to our own performance. We know that.

“It’s an unbelievable stadium and we just have to make sure we feel comfortable there. We’ve got to make sure next season it’s going to be our home for the year so we’ve got to make it as much of a fortress as White Hart Lane has been.”
