Tottenham striker Harry Kane hopes to prove himself amongst Europe's best in Champions League

Posted: 25 September 2017 Time: 16:05

He's proven to be one of the best strikers in the English Premier League, so now Harry Kane has an opportunity to make a statement in Europe's biggest club competition - the Uefa Champions League.

Fresh from bagging a brace against London rivals West Ham United at London Stadium on Sunday, Kane and his Tottenham Hotspur teammates turn their attention to the Uefa Champions League for a tricky match against a side they do not know much about.

They face Greek side APOEL away from home on Tuesday, looking to make it two wins in as many matches after their victory over German giants Borussia Dortmund on matchday one a fortnight ago.

As he walked out of the players' tunnel after the 3-2 victory over Benni McCarthy's former side West Ham on Saturday, Kane had a look of a man who is just itching to terrorise the APOEL defence.

While the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Karim Benzema and Neymar have made their mark on the Champions League, Kane has a lot to do to join an elite list of Champions League attackers who are well known for their performances in the competition.

The England international made a good start to the competition this season with a brace in the victory over Dortmund and has a chance to continue where he left off when they face APOEL on Tuesday.

“We are confident going into the game, especially after the last result in the Champions League," siad the Englishman.

"[There's] no easy game away from home in the Champions League. It’s going to be tough, it’s another massive game. If we win we will be on six points and in a great position.

He continued: “I’d imagine it’s going to be a hostile atmosphere. We’ve got to go there, play and try to win the game. You don’t know what the pitch is going to be like and you don’t know what the crowd is going to be like, but we have to adapt to that and hopefully win the game.”

- SuperSport will show the Uefa Champions League matchday two live on Tuesday and Wednesday.
