Tottenham grabbed an impressive point against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Tuesday night, showing they are ready to compete with the very best in European football.
The 1-1 draw ensured Real and Spurs remain completely level on all fronts at the top of their group.
Harry Kane, who’s flick on ricocheted off Raphael Varane to give Tottenham the lead, praised his side’s steady performance against the current European champions.
Kane was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “It was a big statement. A few years ago we were playing Europa League and to come here to the Bernabeu and put in a performance like that — we drew and maybe could have won — shows what kind of team we are.”
His battle with the Los Blancos defence was always going to be intriguing coming into the game, and the 24-year-old certainly didn’t crumble under the pressure, forcing Keylor Navas into action several times, including a spectacular save from the Costa Rican in the second half.
And after the game, Kane was spotted patting Navas on the back as he passed him while exiting the stadium.

The return fixture at Wembley on November 1st will certainly be one to look forward to, with both teams looking to go top of the group.
