Harry Kane returned from injury just in time for Tottenham's crucial Champions League group game against Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old striker has been in electric form this season but suffered a tight hamstring during the recent 4-1 win over Liverpool.

Kane missed Tottenham's next two games and Mauricio Pochettino's side proceeded to lose against Crystal Palace and Manchester United.

He was back just in time for Wednesday night's tasty clash - and played a starring role up front as Real Madrid's defence was run ragged.

Spurs won 3-1 thanks to goals from Dele Alli (2) and Christian Eriksen.

Alli, 21, may have grabbed the headlines with his double on the big occasion but eagle-eyed football fans noticed the incredible work by his attacking partner.

Kane, who typically bags the goals, showed Real Madrid that there is much more to his game than just hitting the back of the net.

Many experts have suggested that the in-form Englishman was giving an audition, amid reported interest from the La Liga giants.

Real Madrid have previously taken advantage of their 'special relationship' with Spurs, by signing superstars Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

He didn't get on the scoresheet but Kane's superb performance at Wembley was crucial to Tottenham's success.

Kane was playing as a playmaker at times and showed that he is world class in that role too - he perfectly set up Eriksen to put Spurs out of reach.

Chelsea U-18 head coach Jody Morris appreciated the masterclass against Sergio Ramos & Co.

"I think tonight shows that we're a very good team," Kane told reporters after the game. "It's going to give us a lot of confidence, a lot of belief.

"It's good to prove to everyone that we can do it on the big occasion."

Asked if Tottenham can go all the way in the Champions League, Kane responded "why not?

"I'm not going to get too ahead of ourselves but we've got to believe. Everyone doubted us at the start of the group stage but we played well in the last four games against tough opposition. It will give us big belief - even in the Premier League - that we can go on and do good things."
