Shkendija 1-3 Tottenham Hotspur

HARRY KANE CAME off the bench to score as Tottenham struck twice in the final 20 minutes to reach the final round of Europa League qualifying with a 3-1 win over Shkendija in Macedonia.

Jose Mourinho left Kane out among six changes from the side that swept aside Southampton 5-2 with Son Heung-min scoring four times from Kane assists.

Spurs could not have asked for a better start when Erik Lamela opened the scoring after just five minutes with a calm finish.

But the visitors failed to convert a host of other chances to kill the tie off and Valjmir Nafiu blasted home an equaliser past Joe Hart on his Tottenham debut.

Kane was then introduced alongside Giovani Lo Celso, but was guilty of also missing a glorious chance when he headed wide from point-blank range.

However, Son made no mistake on the rebound after Lucas Moura’s shot was saved and the roles from the weekend were reversed 11 minutes from time when the England captain powered home a header from Son’s cross.
