Kane takes Spurs through; FOOTBALL SHORTS EUROPA LEAGUE.
HARRY Kane fired Tottenham into the knockout stages of the Europa League as they finally overcame stubborn Group J minnows Qarabag 1-0 in Baku.
The England striker, a surprise inclusion in the starting line-up with Spurs facing Barclays Premier League champions Chelsea less than 72 hours later, nodded in the winner with 12 minutes remaining.
It meant Tottenham's longestever journey for a competitive fixture - a 5,000-mile round trip to the capital of Azerbaijan - proved worthwhile as they made the last 32 with a match to spare.
What was shaping up to be a frustrating evening, with both Son Heung-min and Dele Alli denied by the woodwork, was finally settled by in-form Kane's ninth goal in six games.
He made the breakthrough after Son flicked on an Eriksen's corner.
