Cape Town - Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino paid tribute to Harry Kane after the England striker hit a hat-trick in his side's 3-0 win over APOEL in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Tottenham striker followed up his two goals against West Ham at the weekend with a perfect hat-trick.

A left-foot shot in the first half was followed by a right-foot strike and a header as Kane took his Champions League tally to five goals in two games.

The treble was Kane’s sixth of 2017 and meant that Kane has hit 11 goals in September after his traditional goalless August.

"It was a tough game. It was a difficult game, they (APOEL) were very motivated," Pochettino said.

"I think it’s important today to get the three points. It was a must-win game and it’s so important.

"Today there were some good performances from players who have not been playing regularly.

"Of course, the hat-trick for Harry was a fantastic performance. Today was a difficult night so it was important to win."
