Englishman Harry Kane scored a hat-trick after coming off the bench to seal a 5-1 win for Tottenham Hotspur over Slovenian champions Mura in the Europa Conference League group stage.
Meanwhile, Dele Alli’s penalty and a goal from Giovani Lo Celso put Spurs in control after just eight minutes in north London. However, a volley from Ziga Kous of Slovenia cut the deficit shortly after half-time.
Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo introduced Kane, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura for the final 30 minutes. It was a triple change that assisted the struggling Premier League club wrap up a much-needed success.
Kane, who is aiming to score in the league this season, completed his treble in the closing minutes after a slick pass from Lo Celso. “We made it harder than we needed to,” said Kane. “It was nice to come off the bench and score a few goals.”
Three straight league defeats have added pressure on Nuno, who was named Premier League manager of the month for August after leading Spurs to wins in their first three matches.
“Us as players and staff need to stick together and work hard. Our recent form has not been great but we need to try to turn it round next game,” said the 28-year old Kane. “Every striker wants to score goals. I probably wasn’t expecting to come on today but it’s nice to get the minutes. Whenever you see the ball hit the back of the net it’s a good feeling.”
