Kane double lifts Tottenham


September 14, 2017

LONDON, England (AP):

Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham opened their Champions League campaign by beating Borussia Dortmund 3-1 yesterday, overwhelming last season's quarter-finalists with a formidable attacking display.

It gave Tottenham only their third victory in 13 matches in a decade at Wembley Stadium which is the north London club's temporary home for the season while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

"I hope it stops the talk about a hoodoo (at Wembley)," Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. "To build that confidence and trust at Wembley I think is so important ... and the perception in future."

Tottenham only won once here last season in the group stage against CSKA Moscow when their hopes of advancing were already over. But Kane's double after Son Heung-min's opener will give Tottenham hope they can progress this season from one of the toughest groups.
