Harry Kane was a hero of the day when he found the back of the net twice for Tottenham Hotspur as they defeated Dinamo Zagreb in the first leg of the Uefa Europa League round of 16 on Thursday.
Spurs crushed the Croatian side 2-0 to put one foot in the Europa League quarter-finals.
The English goal poacher broke the deadlock in the 25th minute of the game and went on to seal the deal for his side with a composed low finish in the 70th minute.
The club manager Jose Mourinho has pointed out that he intends to fight for Champions League qualification via the Europa League.
“Kane does everything,” said Mourinho.
“He helps us a lot. He has an incredible number of clearances from crosses and corners. We couldn’t be happier. I gave a rest to many of the players, but with Harry on the pitch, it is a different story for us. He is doing the striker job of scoring goals. The teamwork of creating space and linking play and the extra work not many strikers do in defence.
“I believe one more goal would be a good reflection of the game and would put us in a much better position.
“But before the game, if you asked if 2-0 is a good result I would say [it is].”
Mourinho’s next assignment is the North London derby. The Lilywhites will lock horns with arch-rivals Arsenal on Sunday, 14 March 2021 in a Premier League clash.
“Sunday is a match everyone wants to play and little things will not stop him [Kane]. I don’t have the feeling it is anything serious,” concludes the Portuguese mentor.
