Tottenham took one step closer to the Europa League quarter-finals as Harry Kane’s double secured a comfortable 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday night.
Kane’s predatory finish put the hosts in front (25) before the striker pounced on a slack clearance from Kevin Theophile-Catherine to double his tally for the evening (70).
There would be no second European hat-trick of the season for the England captain, who was replaced late on as a precautionary measure following a challenge from Arijan Ademi.
The result puts Tottenham in a strong position ahead of the last 16 second leg on March 18 as Jose Mourinho’s side now turn their focus towards facing Arsenal in the North London derby, live on Sky Sports, on Sunday.
