Harry Kane enjoyed a near-perfect Sunday at Wembley as the Tottenham striker met Diego Maradona before starring in Spurs' 4-1 win over Liverpool.

Mauricio Pochettino introduced Kane - along with club captain Hugo Lloris - to another famous No.10 in Maradona before the England international scored twice to earn another Premier League victory for Spurs.

The World Cup winner was a special guest at Wembley, where he caught up with fellow Argentinian Pochettino before kick-off.

The pair had a short spell as team-mates at Newell's Old Boys in the early 1990s and met again as Maradona, who turned out for Tottenham in a friendly match in 1986, saw Kane and his Spurs colleagues blow Liverpool away.

Pochettino's side are now level on points with second-placed Manchester United in the Premier League, and the Spurs boss was delighted that Maradona was present to see his side finally make Wembley their home.

Kane now has 13 goals for the season, with eight in the League to lead the Golden Boot race, and he earned high praise from his manager.

"I'm so pleased because always it is good when you enjoy football and he should enjoy the game. I introduced him with Hugo and Harry," Pochettino said.

"It was another fantastic performance (from Kane), he is amazing. One of the best players, one of the best strikers in the world."
