March 12 (Reuters) - An injury to Harry Kane marred Tottenham Hotspur’s party as they marked their last FA Cup tie at their White Hart Lane home with a 6-0 thrashing of third-tier London rivals Millwall to book their place in a loaded semi-final line-up on Sunday.
England international Kane, the Premier League’s joint top scorer, had to hobble off after falling awkwardly and suffering an ankle injury in a sixth minute challenge during their sixth round tie.
Yet his absence was not missed on the day as Son Heung-min hammered a brilliant hat-trick and Kane’s replacement Christian Eriksen also scored a beauty before Dele Alli and substitute Vincent Janssen got in on the act.
It all made for an emotional occasion at Spurs’ storied 118-year-old ground which they will leave at the end of the season.
