Spurs can go on and rule Europe after Real rout, maintains Kane


By Tom Allnut

Harry Kane believes Tottenham can win the Champions League after they blew away Real Madrid.

Dele Alli's double and a second-half strike from Christian Eriksen put the European champions out of sight as Spurs sealed progress to the last 16.

Cristiano Ronaldo added a late consolation at Wembley but nothing could spoil Tottenham's 3-1 victory, one of the finest in the club's history.

It leaves Mauricio Pochettino's men in a commanding position to win Group H and boost their chances of landing a kinder draw in the knockout stages. 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 said. "Four games in, we've qualified and we've got a good chance of finishing top. I think everyone doubted us at the start but for us, of course you've got to believe.

"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.

"Even in the Premier League it will give us big belief that we can go on and do good things.

"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.

"It shows we can beat anyone on any day so it's just about getting that consistency."
