Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen pulled Tottenham back from two goals down to hold Juventus 2-2 in Turin, spoiling what had looked set to be a Gonzalo Higuain one-man show in the Champions League last 16, first leg in Turin on Tuesday. "Tottenham enjoy a good form and performances against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal is a reflection of that". But after that we dominated Juventus and that is a thing to praise.

Julio Ricardo Cruz scored a brace within the first 8 minutes and 30 seconds of Inter Milan's 2-1 win against Spartak Moscow in 2006.

"If we improve in defence, we can step up to another level". While he's undoubtedly been one of the finest goal scorers in world football in the last few years or so, many felt that his showing in the first 45 minutes typified his career.

"We are a young team playing this competition".

"My feeling was so bad, because you hope that situation never happens", he said.

Tottenham battled back from an early two-goal deficit to score two away goals in Turin on Tuesday and underline again just how far they have come since Pochettino's appointment in 2014.

The Italian giants will have to outscore Tottenham if they are to go through.

Eriksen, the man who grabbed the all-important goal, said so himself.

Under-fire Barnaby Joyce describes political turmoil as his 'time of trial'
Small Business Minister Michael McCormack is one of the possible Nationals leadership contenders should Barnaby Joyce resign. However, Joyce has said that he and Campion were not in a formal relationship at the time of her promotion.

"Tottenham and Juventus are two top clubs, but now this match needs to be put aside so that we can concentrate on Serie A and stay hot on the heels of Napoli".

"We still have a good chance to qualify in London, but it's totally insane to think that Juventus has to win 3-0 in the round of 16 in the Champions League".

Juve had conceded only once in their previous 16 games and the club have reached the Champions League final twice in their last three seasons.

True to his word, the visitors played on the front foot from eight minutes onwards, finishing the match with almost 70 percent of possession. "We dominated the possession, we dominated Juventus and we forced them to play deeper", Pochettino told a postmatch news conference.

"We are more mature now", said Pochettino after the 2-2 draw. "It helped us actually and luckily we could turn it around".

"It shows a lot of character". Then we'll try to go forward in the Champions League.

Kane, who bagged Tottenham's victor against rivals Arsenal last weekend, paid tribute to the way his team mates recovered from conceding twice in the first nine minutes on Tuesday - Gonzalo Higuain striking twice for the hosts.
