Harry Kane’s Rage At Half-Time Fuelled Our Comeback – Kieran Trippier

Harry Kane’s furious half-time team talk inspired Tottenham to stage a remarkable comeback against Ajax in the Champions League semi-final, Kieran Trippier revealed after the game. The England captain, who injured his ankle during the first leg of Spurs’ quarter-final against Manchester City, was watching from the stands in Amsterdam, but went into the dressing room during the break to demand more from his team-mates. Mauricio Pochettino’s side found themselves 2-0 down at half-time, needing three goals to progress and Trippier revealed how strong Kane’s influence was, despite the forward being unable to take the field. “Harry’s exceptional for club and country,” said Trippier. “I don’t know the timescale with his injury but obviously we’re all hoping he can be back because of his presence, even here. “At half-time he came in and was going mental at us because we can do better, which we all knew, but this is what we need, the leadership he has. “The way he came in at half-time and wasn’t happy, we all knew that. “He just gives us that extra lift because his presence was massive for us.”

After Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech’s first-half strikes, Tottenham were in need of goals, but with their top scorer unavailable, it was Lucas Moura who stepped up in Kane’s absence, his hat-trick securing an improbable win. Photo Credit: Getty
