Harry Kane on Bayern's victory over Galatasaray: "It was a tough game"

After scoring a brace in Bayern's 2-1 win over Galatasaray, Harry Kane described the match as "tough".
Harry Kane was delighted to be the difference maker for Bayern Munich in what he described as a "tough" game against Galatasaray on Wednesday night.

The England international scored two late goals to help the Bavarians to a 2-1 victory and secure a place in the Champions League round of 16. Speaking afterwards, he told UEFA.com:

"It was a tough game. We expected another tough game. The away leg was very similar. I thought we controlled the game better this time. Especially in the first half, we got into the final third in transition we just lacked the final pass or final finish. We knew in the second half we just had keep that momentum."

Kane's two goals tonight took his tally to an impressive 19 in just 15 games since joining from Tottenham in the summer.

"There's always a lot that goes into the transfer, on and off the field. So of course there's always a bit more pressure and expectation, but I've been delighted with the start [to life in Munich] obviously. It's down to the team too. The team are playing really well and I've got amazing players around me to set me up and give me chances," the striker said.
