  • Tottenham played a 2-2 draw against Juventus in the first leg tie if Champions League last 16

Tottenham had barely put two passes together when they fell further behind.

Juventus fell slight flat after Kane reduced deficit - and it was their first goal they had conceded in 826 minutes of action.

When Gonzalo Higuain scored twice in the opening 10 minutes, it appeared the Italian champions were on course for the quarter-finals. After that however it was pretty much one-way traffic from the away side who controlled possession and carved out chance after chance.

However, the valiant Londoners would ultimately turn the match around thanks to Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen's crucial away goals, and Pochettino says that after an initial stutter his side were in control of the Serie A giants. Kane corralled the ball in the box and tapped it around Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon, before finishing with his left foot into an open net. "I can't accept that people are getting depressed over a 2-2 draw, it seems like we lost 8-0".

"They've all come together and that gives us opportunities to adapt to many different systems".

This was a Juve side featuring seven starters from last year's final, who had conceded one goal in their previous 16 matches in all competitions and who had never let slip a two-goal lead since moving to their new stadium in 2011.

He said: "Fantastic game".

"They showed that against one of the most respected defences in the game, they took the game to them".

So if you were Spurs you'd probably want to avoid giving away a free kick in a unsafe area and a penalty in the opening 10 minutes.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri reacted strongly afterward when it was suggested his team, who are going for a seventh successive Serie A title, should have beaten Spurs, who are fifth in the English Premier League.

They blamed a series of mistakes on the galling result, citing Higuain's penalty miss as one of many to bring about their demise. "The Tottenham youngsters are growing as a team all the time".

Kane was delighted to take two valuable away goals into the second leg at Wembley, meaning Juventus have to outscore Spurs to win.

Tottenham arrived full of confidence after winning a group containing Real and Borussia Dortmund. That shows how good we were. You need some luck always in football.

"We had 50 per cent possibility before the match and we still have that after this match".
