Tottenham icon Glenn Hoddle told BT Sport on Tuesday night that he believes Harry Kane was not at his very best despite scoring Spurs' equaliser against Borussia Dortmund.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have seen off competition from Real Madrid, Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia to finish at the top of Group H, after coming from behind to beat Peter Bosz's Dortmund 2-1.

Kane, 24, stroked home and excellent equaliser to score his first goal in four games and 18th of the season for club and country, after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had given Dortmund the lead in the first half.

Spurs went onto win thanks to a Son Heung-Min winner in the 76th minute, but Hoddle claimed Kane was not at his best before stating that he simply does not need to be as he can score goals, even when he is not playing well.

"We said at half-time that he wasn't at his sharpest," Hoddle said. "But it doesn't matter about Harry. If you've got a ball there to hit, he's a finisher. His instinct is to get a shot on, not to try and create another bit of space.

"He gets fortunate with his touch. It hits his feet, he's not quite sure how he's got there but as soon as he sees he has got an opportunity to hit the target and that is Harry Kane at his very best - not play at his very best, but scoring goals."

The win will delight Spurs boss Pochettino after his side lost to north London rivals Arsenal on Saturday, as he watched from the Westfalenstadion dugout to see his side produce an excellent comeback to top their group.

Now, Spurs' focus will be centred on the Premier League once again, as they go up against West Brom at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.
