After a week where the chances of winning the Premier League title all but ended, Harry Kane is hopeful that Tottenham Hotspur's dismissal of Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League will be catalyst for the club to finish the season on a high.

Kane was on the scoresheet as the London club got the better of Dortmund in Germany, with his goal contributing to a 4-0 aggregate win in the last-16 clash.

"It's massive for momentum after the tough week in the Premier League we had," was Kane's summation of the win when he spoke to RTÉ Sport afterwards.

"It could have been a tough night tonight if we weren't careful. We showed a bit of maturity and that's what we need if we are going to far in this competition. It's a massive achievement for the club."

The England striker also felt that a 3-0 advantage "was tough" ahead of the second leg but was pleased with the way Spurs handled the occasion.

"You're not always quite sure what to do, whether to defend or attack," he added.

"In the second half we picked up the energy a bit. We got one chance, we took it and that finished the game.

"I had quite a lot of time and was happy with the finish. I was delighted to see it go in.

"The first half was a battle. Hugo (Lloris) made some big saves. The defence put in some big blocks but that's what you need away from home in the Champions League.

"We had to dig deep and we found a way to get through."
