Spurs hat-trick hero Kane: Staff and players must stick together

Harry Kane called for unity after his hat-trick helped Tottenham to a 5-1 rout of NS Mura in the Europa Conference League.

Goals from Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso in the opening eight minutes put Spurs in charge and, after Ziga Kous scored the goal of his life for the minnows after half-time, Kane came on to finish the job in the final 30 minutes.

It was the England captain's 13th hat-trick for Spurs, as he edges closer to the late Jimmy Greaves' record of 266 goals, with Kane now on 227 goals for the club.

When asked whether he had discussed his second half introduction with the Spurs manager he said: "We hadn't spoken about it. It was all depending on how the game was going.

"The momentum shifted in their favour. It was about coming on and doing a job for the team.

"Us as players and staff need to stick together and work hard. Our recent form has not been great but we need to try to turn it around in the next game.

"Every striker wants to score goals. I probably wasn't expecting to come on today but it's nice to get the minutes. Whenever you see the ball hit the back of the net it's a good feeling. Hopefully we can take it into the weekend."
