Tottenham vs PSV Eindhoven, Champions League

Tottenham vs PSV Eindhoven, Champions League

There was some conjecture about whether it should be ruled an own goal, however, match officials awarded the goal to Kane.

Away from domestic action, the club have struggled in the UEFA Champions League and their long-awaited move to a new stadium has been delayed.

Socceroos star Trent Sainsbury cursed his misfortune after a dream Champions League debut for PSV turned into a nightmare against Tottenham. After only 62 seconds they took the lead with Luuk de Jong rising to head in a corner.

Although on a more positive note, Dele Alli is likely to have a place on the bench after shaking off an injury and committing his long-term future to Tottenham.

He reached for Erik Lamela just past the hour mark, although that switch's impact was tempered by the fact that Lucas Moura, the game's most effective player until that point, was the man to be replaced. We did everything, everybody was fighting for the result.

Inter Milan, who are three points ahead of Spurs after drawing with Barcelona, come to Wembley in three weeks and Pochettino believes they can get the win which would force a final-game decider at the Nou Camp in December. And in the end we won'.

In the Premier League, maybe, but this was Tottenham's first victory in its Champions League group and there was a touch of fortune about it.

Dele Alli was back in the Tottenham line-up after missing their weekend win at Wolves through injury and the England midfielder nearly made an immediate impact.

Alli lost another duel with Zoet soon after, this time watching in despair as the Dutch keeper pushed away his low drive. 'The early goal increased the belief for the opponents and we created chances and dominated the game and could not score. There was more to come from the England striker.

The visiting defense was finally breached when Kane met a lay-off from substitute Fernando Llorente with a left-footed shot into the corner.

"Sometimes people say "Oh, Pochettino doesn't have a Plan B or Plan C", he continued. "We knew it before, we were training and I told the guys after one minute of complaining you have to stop and go on with training and then get used to the pitch". Then in one game anything can happen. "It's important we do not concede a goal as cheap as we did today".
