Harry Kane has set his sights on surpassing Lionel Messi as Tottenham prepare to face Barcelona in the Champions League this evening.

“It motivates me to get even better and improve and one day score as many if not more than he has,” said Kane.

“He’s definitely set the standard for the rest of us. Him and Cristiano Ronaldo have gone above what other people have set in the years gone past.

“When you’re scoring as many goals as Messi is, 40 or 50, 60 goals a season, as a striker – I want to try and match that.

“As players you want to play against the best players in the world and Messi is certainly a fantastic player.”
