Kane, Eriksen thrilled with comeback in Turin: "It showed character"


Allegri said his side were never favourites against Spurs as he prepares for a "final" in the second leg at Wembley next month.

"Kane said I made a rough challenge on him once?" "We started sloppily. But we showed great character and I feel so proud". We are a young team in this competition.

"When you see a performance like that, to re-group and to comeback and play as they did, it was a controlled performance. I think the team was awesome in the way they reacted".

"But I had a feeling, and I saw the wall move, and I think I saw him take a step as well Buffon, and luckily I changed my mind and went for the other corner and it went in".

He told juventus.com: "The second leg in London is still some way off, so now we turn our attentions back to the league and to Sunday's derby against Torino".

"This really irritates me, because people have no idea of how teams function".

Tottenham displayed resilience, fighting spirit and nerve to salvage a 2-2 draw against Juventus after going 2-0 down inside nine minutes.

And that paid off right from the start in a nightmare opening 10 minutes for Spurs. Jan Vertonghen's poor clearance went straight to Miralem Pjanic with Mousa Dembele making things worse with a rash foul. The team is growing and have stepped up in this aspect.

Tottenham's Harry Kane applauds fans after the match against Juventus.

Higuain nearly got his hat-trick after a swift counter-attack and some lovely interplay with Pjanic, but he fired narrowly wide of the left upright.

Buffon got his fingertips to a scuffed Kane drive, but could do nothing when the England worldwide sprung the offside trap on an Alli through ball and dribbled round to score from a tight angle.

Despite that pressure, Douglas Costa turned on the turbo to get away from Serge Aurier and was brought down for another penalty.

He could not complete his hat-trick, however, as the ball thundered against the bar and the players headed for the dressing room.

Eriksen levelled the scores with a cunning free-kick that deceived Gianluigi Buffon.

Elsewhere, Manchester City all but secured a spot in the last 8 draw with a commanding 4-0 win away at FC Basle.

So, with three FA Cup strikes added in, he has 33 goals in all.

Spurs looked shell-shocked, but not for long. That's because, rather than being a story of the goals they scored, this game was ultimately about the chances they missed.

But two-time winners and nine-time finalists Juventus eased up as the minutes passed, allowing Tottenham back into the match. "We were clinical today".
