Harry Kane ends Ibrahim and Paços de Ferreira’s hope of Conference League football


Harry Kane bagged a brace while Giovani Lo Celso scored added a third goal to see Tottenham turn around 1-0 first-leg deficit and progress 3-1 on aggregate against Paços de Ferreira into the Conference League group stage.

Kane scored in the 9th and 35th minutes to fire Spurs into a first half lead, before Lo Celso’s 70th minute goal wrapped up a comfortable win for the Premiership side.


Meanwhile, Ferreira were out of the depth in the return-leg having stunned their more fancied opponents in the first game.


Nigerian midfielder Abbas Ibrahim was an unused substitute in the game and also did not taste action in the previous leg back at home.


The result spells Ferreira’s elimination from Europe this season as Spurs march on and will know their opponents in the group stage, Friday August 27.
