Harry Kane declared his pride as his hat-trick against Apoel Nicosia fired Tottenham to the top of Champions League Group GH alongside reigning champions Real Madrid.
On a night when Tottenham struggled to produce their best form in the absence of the suspended Dele Alli and injured Christian Eriksen, Kane stepped forward to lead the charge for Mauricio Pochetinos’s side once again a sthey secured a 3-0 win to secure a second successive Champions League win of the season.
After the England marksman failed to score in August once again, Kane now has a stunning 11 goals in September for club and country and he offered up these words to BT Sports after his latest sparkling performance.
“It is a very proud night for myself and the team. I try and score every game – It is a bonus when I get three,” stated the striker who scored his SIXTH hat-trick of 2017.
“We weren’t pleased with the first-half and a couple of chances could have gone the other way. We were more clinical and in the Champions League that is what you have got to be.
“We are missing a few players but the lads who stepped in were fantastic. We have a solid squad and you have to be ready. 3-0 away in the Champions League no matter who you play is a good result.”
BT Sport pundit and Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle suggested Kane had the ability to become the greatest striker to play for the club, which drew this response from the 24-year-old forward.
“That you for that and hopefully,” he stated “I have to keep do what I’m doing. I’m still young and I feel good.
“What I want to try and do here is win Premier Leagues, Champions League and FA Cup, that’s what we want. Now we have Real Madrid next and we are looking forward to that one.”
