Kane eyes Europa League improvement

Harry Kane is hopeful of turning around a 1-0 deficit against Gent in their Europa League last-32 second-leg clash on Thursday.

Spurs suffered a 1-0 loss to the Belgian side at the GHELAMCO-arena last week, but Kane is keen on making it two wins from two at Wembley after the 3-1 Champions League win over CSKA Moscow at the national stadium on December 7.

Speaking ahead of the tie, the England striker spoke of the experience of playing at Wembley, and of the side's participation in the Europa League this term.

He told the club's official website: "It's been a great experience.

“Of course, the first couple of games we played there were disappointing – that was just down to our performances – but obviously we won the last game we played there so hopefully we can win (tonight) and progress in the competition. We’re confident."

Reflecting on the first-leg, he added: "It was obviously a difficult game last week and we don’t feel we played to the best of our ability."

Spurs picked themselves up from the defeat to beat Fulham 3-0 in the FA Cup this past weekend where Kane netted all three goals.

He continued: "It's a great opportunity for us to turn it around in the second leg now. We're feeling confident, especially after the weekend (3-0 win at Fulham in the FA Cup fifth round) and we're looking forward to the game.”
