GOAL HERO: Harry Kane, right

Spurs striker Harry Kane can’t stop setting new records. 

Kane continued his single-handed assault on the history books on Tuesday night when he scored Tottenham’s opening goal in their comeback 2-2 draw at Juventus in the Champions League last 16 first leg.

His 35th-minute effort was his seventh goal in the competition this season – matching Steven Gerrard whose seven for Liverpool in the 2008/09 campaign had stood as a record for an English player.

The 24-year-old, who this month reached 100 Premier League goals in only 141 matches, could have added to his tally on Tuesday but for two great saves by Juve’s veteran keeper Gianluigi Buffon in the first half.

TWO-GOAL HERO: Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain

But Kane is not taking all the plaudits after his team fought their way back after two early goals from Juve's Gonzalo Higuain. 

He says: “We could have capitulated, away from home in the Champions League. It showed character.

“It was an excellent performance after that and we take two away goals to Wembley. A great result.”

Boss Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, felt his team should have won the game. 
Pochettino says: “For 83 minutes, we dominated. 

“That is a thing to praise. I don’t think many teams can come here and dominate a team like Juventus. 
“We dominated possession, we forced them to play deeper, and they only had the transition and the counterattack to create chances.”
