'Top quality': Some Spurs fans in awe of one player's display tonight - Gil aside

Spurs cruised into the Europa Conference League group stage thanks to a 3-1 aggregate win over Pacos de Ferreira.

Harry Kane, making his first start since confirming he’d stay at Tottenham, bagged a brace in north London.

The Spurs talisman opened the scoring after just nine minutes, rifling home following a superb pass from Bryan Gil.

Kane then doubled Tottenham’s lead and turned the tie around when he slammed a low drive into the corner shortly before the break.

Spurs then put the result – of the match and tie – beyond doubt when Giovani Lo Celso forced an own goal from Vitorino Antunes.

The north Londoners won 3-0 on the night in a much-improved display from that which saw them lose 1-0 in Portugal.

While plenty of Tottenham players shone on the night, there was plenty of praise for two of the newcomers.

Gil delivered an incredible display, while Cristian Romero also won plaudits for his performance, which suggests he’s already finding his feet at N17.

As well as being solid at the back, Romero was also eager to get involved further up the pitch.

He delivered a great early ball to put Kane through on goal, and generally looked confident stepping out and going further forward.

Here is what some Spurs fans said about Romero’s display on Twitter:
