Harry Kane believes Tottenham can win the Champions League after they blew away Real Madrid according to an article by The Irish Examiner.
A Dele Alli double and a superb second-half strike from Christian Eriksen shocked the European champions as and we sealed progress to the last 16 in stunning style.
The article added the 3-1 victory will go down as one of the finest in the club’s history also leaving Mauricio Pochettino’s men in a commanding position to win Group H and boost their chances of landing an easier draw in the knockout stages.
The article adds that Kane reckons Spurs can go all the way.
“Definitely, why not? We’re not going to get too ahead of ourselves but we’ve got to believe,” Kane is quoted as saying.
“Four games in, we’ve qualified and we’ve got a good chance of finishing top. I think everyone doubted us at the start of the group stage but for us, of course you’ve got to believe.
Kane added “But there’s a long way to go. We’ve played well in the last four games against tough opposition so we’ve just got to keep going, keep improving.”
The article adds we face a difficult trip to Borussia Dortmund later this month before rounding up the group at Wembley against Apoel Nicosia, and a win in either fixture will guarantee us top spot.
However as the article says we turn our attention back to the Premier League, where Saturday’s defeat at Manchester United leaves us eight points behind Manchester City.
Beating the top teams away from home has proven to be our downfall in recent months however a buoyant Kane says overcoming Madrid can instil new confidence.
“Even in the Premier League it will give us big belief that we can go on and do good things,”:Kane said.
“Just against the bigger teams, especially away from home. Getting a draw at the Bernabeu was good and we’ve got to start doing that in the Premier League against the top-six sides.
Kane added:”Of course winning the game against Liverpool (4-1 on October 22) helps. Man United was obviously disappointing for us, but we’ve got to build on this, build on this belief.
“We can beat anyone on any day so it’s just about getting that consistency.”
Kane missed the Manchester United and West Ham defeats with a more minor hamstring strain but recovered in time to face Madrid and, despite going off with 11 minutes left, the striker reported no ill-effects.
“It feels good, which is good news,”:Kane said. “I felt good, felt sharp so I look forward to the next weekend now.”
Kane breathes confidence which can only be a good thing, he’s humble with it too and even though he gets the goals, his presence in the dressing room is vital. A fantastic leader. Thankfully his injury wasn’t too serious
