Watch Harry Kane celebrates Tottenham’s dramatic Champions League win with dressing room dance… With ‘full-time fireworks’ message
Spurs were on the back foot at the Velodrome in the south of France at halftime after a poor performance left them down 1-0 after a header from Chancel Mbemba in stoppage time.
Spurs came from behind to win in the second half, with Clement Lenglet’s header putting them back on track for the round of 16, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s late goal sending the north London club through as group winners.
After the game, Tottenham players rejoiced in front of Spurs fans on the field before continuing the celebratory atmosphere into the locker room.
Even talisman Harry Kane couldn’t help but walk along to the beat as loud music blared in the away dressing room.

Emerson Royal was overheard encouraging teammate Harry Kane to continue dancing by yelling “Come on, Harry!” as the striker clapped his hands and smiled widely.
Emerson captured the Spurs’ celebrations from within the locker room, encouraging Yves Bissouma to dance and capturing a fired-up Lucas Moura as he yelled a rallying cry into the camera.

The Spurs players then posed for a group photo, which Kane looked to have taken before posting it to his Twitter account with the phrase ‘full time fireworks’
Kane’s caption looked to be directed at Marseille supporters who produced a pyrotechnic display outside the Spurs players’ hotel the night before the match in an attempt to disturb their sleep, as well as several explosions prior to the match.
Son Heung-min, who was forced to leave the game in the first half after suffering a facial injury, was among the players featured in the uploaded group photo.
Tottenham fans will be pleased to see that the Korean star is fit enough to celebrate with his teammates, but they may be concerned about the left eye swelling that led to his replacement.
Manager Antonio Conte was conspicuously absent from the shot, as he was serving a touchline ban for his dismissal in the previous Champions League match against Sporting Lisbon and, per UEFA regulations, was not permitted in the locker room.
Conte’s assistant manager, Cristian Stellini, was in charge instead, and he confessed that Conte was uncomfortable having to watch the tense match from the terraces.
“I spoke to Antonio. He was very tired. For him to be in the crowd is not usual.”
Spurs will now focus on Monday’s draw for the round of 16, where finishing first in their group will allow them to avoid a number of Europe’s top teams, including Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain.
