Tottenham news: Lucas Moura insists Spurs can win Champions League

The Brazilian winger marked an impressive first start for Spurs since his £25m move from Paris Saint-Germain with the goal that cancelled out Ian Henderson’s opener for Dale.  Harry Kane’s penalty looked to have clinched it for the Premier League club until sub Stephen Davies levelled in added time to earn Keith Hill’s side a replay at Wembley and a financial jackpot estimated to be around £500,000.  It’s the second time Spurs have been held in the Cup by a lower division team this season, following the draw with Newport…

Getty Harry Kane netted for Tottenham before half time Inevitably, it was Harry Kane not Michael Caine who was the star, scoring the first goal. But it was only when Christian Eriksen fired an unexpected set-piece sneakily under the Juventus defences that Tottenham were able to pull level on the night, meaning a win or a low-scoring draw will be enough in the return next month. But perhaps it was in keeping with the script that Tottenham had begun the action with a jaw-dropping sequence of Mini pandemonium. When you…
