The Wales global told the Evening Standard: "We hope it might lift the talk about the struggles we've had at Wembley off our backs, but we've always been confident playing there". "It's true, the team were 14th or 13th and we were a little bit under pressure because the team were not winning games".

"We are working very hard to build our philosophy and the way we want to play, then to win".

The club say the intention is for Rose to resume training in the coming weeks, but Pochettino revealed he is still in the dark over when he might next be able to pick the England worldwide, who injured his knee at the end of January.

Kane stole the show in Spurs' entertaining 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday, producing two clinical finishes to boost his tally to six goals in his last four games for club and country. "For me, that goal was an fantastic goal because it meant for us, for everyone, the possibility to stay here today". We did that in the first half and the second half was better. "If you, like Harry Kane, show that motivation, all can happen and all is possible in football".

The striker explained that a "last-minute" phone call from Pochettino helped him make his decision, and the manager discussed what he said to the player on Friday. "It will help us in the future I think". I have known him since he was playing in Spain. It is our responsibility to translate and inspire them to not lose their hunger.

Other names on the treatment table for Tottenham include Erik Lamela and Danny Rose, who have been sidelined for an extended period of time with a hip injury and a knee problem respectively. We are assessing them every day, still we need to wait and can not give a date to return to the group and start training.

Tottenham travel to Cyprus in two weeks to play APOEL, and Pochettino is confident the performance against Dortmund will stand them in good stead for the rest of their campaign.
