Harry Kane’s first Champions League hat-trick made it two wins from two group games for Tottenham with a 3-0 victory at APOEL Nicosia.
The in-form striker gave Spurs a first-half lead against the run of play when he latched on to Toby Alderweireld’s through-ball and finished coolly, after the hosts had earlier hit the crossbar.
Hugo Lloris was forced into two good saves after the interval as APOEL continued to threaten, but deadly Kane finished off another swift breakaway when he was set up by Moussa Sissoko.
And the England striker took his current Champions League tally to five in two games, and nine goals in all competitions this season, when he headed home Kieran Trippier’s cross from the right to net a perfect hat-trick.
