"A team like Chelsea can win the Champions League, when they won they were not the best". Joe Hart even managed to keep a clean sheet. Big Sam was infamously England manager for a single game, before losing his job in controversial circumstances, and it was possible to detect a tinge of regret when he spoke about Kane and his on-field partnership with Dele Alli.

Kane said: "Dortmund are a fantastic team with fantastic players".

The England worldwide struck twice on Saturday when Mauricio Pochettino's men dispatched of Everton 3-0, with his first strike being his 100th in the English top-flight.

Pochettino will no doubt be hoping that Kane can replicate his domestic form in the Champions League this season, starting on Wednesday night when Spurs welcome German giants Borussia Dortmund to Wembley.

Tottenham forward Harry Kane understands he must perform in this season's Champions League to elevate his reputation. But he's put that to bed.

However, to be placed among the elite players in the world Kane knows he needs to perform in Europe too.

It saw him reach 80 goals in English top division football and surpass 100 for the Lilywhites, and Carragher, who spent 17 years at Anfield, feels Kane is on the cusp of true greatness.

Kane also won back-to-back Golden Boot awards, despite missing a chunk of the season through injury, as well as becoming the fourth player in league history - after Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy - to notch 20 goals in three consecutive Premier League campaigns. "He looks very strong mentally, he looks as if the only thing he focuses on is football, he doesn't get involved in any other nonsense and I just think he's world class".
