Kane and Messi will be the leading men at Wembley on Wednesday when Tottenham host Barcelona in a crucial Champions League clash.

"Messi has set the standard", he added.

"I think him and (Cristiano) Ronaldo have gone above the normal standard set by people in years gone past", Kane said. When you're scoring as many goals as he is - 40, 50 or 60 goals a season - as a striker, I want to try and match that.

'Barcelona might play better than Real Madrid did last season.

"It's about enjoying the game tomorrow and the best player in the world in Messi", he said. We need to produce that same energy, the crowd were fantastic that night and if we can get them on their feet as soon as possible, create some chances and take one or two it would put us in a great position.

They should fancy their chances, too.
