Tottenham win to enter Europa League

Tottenham secured a place in the Europa League knockout stage as their Champions League campaign ended with a convincing victory over CSKA Moscow. Spurs needed to avoid defeat to secure third place in Group E but went behind when Alan Dzagoev scored from Zoran Tosic’s headed flick-on. But Dele Alli, who had already missed two good chances, half-volleyed in Christian Eriksen’s cross to level, before Harry Kane finished a stylish move to put Spurs in front. CSKA keeper Igor Akinfeev gifted Spurs a third when he inadvertently guided Alli’s header into his own net after making an initial save. It means Tottenham will enter the Europa League for the sixth consecutive season after their first appearance in the Champions League for five years ended in disappointment. But there were positive signs for Spurs as they created numerous chances in a performance inspired by Eriksen’s creativity and range of passing.
