Kane keeps Spurs Euro dream alive as Reds star dimmed

 

By Adam McKendry

Tottenham's late show at Wembley kept their Champions League hopes alive as they came from behind to defeat PSV Eindhoven, but it was agony for Liverpool as they suffered a shock 2-0 loss at Red Star Belgrade.

Harry Kane's late brace helped Spurs to a 2-1 win over the Dutch side and ensures Mauricio Pochettino's side still have their European destiny in their own hands going into the final two group games.

"We could have been more clinical but we'll just take a win in the Champions League. We had to dig deep and find another level when it mattered," said matchwinner Kane.

"We have been grinding results out here and there all season. We are getting wins. This was one of our best performances of the season."

Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool have lost their edge after their stunning loss in Serbia to Red Star.

The result means the Reds no longer lead Group C and, with games against PSG and Napoli still to come, now face a tough challenge to reach the knockout stages.

"it is really difficult to get your mojo back," commented a disappointed Klopp.

"We made life a bit too easy for them tonight."
