Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham brushed aside their Wembley curse and opened their Champions League group campaign with a 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund.

The England striker finished off the second of two swift counter-attacks in the first half, firing home at the near post in similar fashion to Heung-Min Son's opener after just four minutes.

Andriy Yarmolenko had equalised in a first half dominated by the Bundesliga side, who had two goals ruled out for offside in the game - one for Christian Pulisic and the other for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But Kane put them game beyond them on 60 minutes when he finished off a neat move that involved Christian Eriksen and Ben Davies, before Spurs finished the game with 10 men following Jan Vertonghen's second bookable offence.

What's next?

Having got their Champions League campaign off to the perfect start, Tottenham go in search of their first league victory at their temporary home when Swansea City head to Wembley for the late kick-off on Saturday.
