They could finish third if they beat Leicester on Sunday in their final league game at the national stadium and Pochettino will enjoy their success before plotting a Premier League title challenge for 2018-19.
The Foxes were still not budging and after Lloris produced another fine save to deny Iheanacho, they got themselves back level in the 73rd minute when Vardy got in behind the defence and smashed high into the roof of the net from an acute angle.
"Our fans need to know what we are going to do and our fans need to feel the reality of the club and we need to tell the truth and create a very good expectation we can achieve".
Kane's two goals took his tally to 30 for the season and it was an encouraging performance ahead of this summer's World Cup, but he ultimately fell two goals short in his pursuit of a third successive Golden Boot.
Lamela inspired the fightback by twice finishing from Kyle Walker-Peters assists, and it was the Argentine's strike that forced an own goal from Christian Fuchs to put Spurs in front by the hour mark. Until Vardy scored his second to level the tie. Lucas Moura caught Danny Simpson dawdling in possession and Kane picked up the loose ball to race free and place a left-foot shot past Eldin Jakupovic. Vardy controlled in the box and an onrushing Mahrez slammed home to make it 2-1. We can not invest insane money.
Leicester's lead was at two for just two minutes.
Mauricio Pochettino had just seen his team engage in some glorious end of season nonsense over the course of nine goals in their last home game at Wembley when the Tottenham Hotspur manager decided that it was time to deliver some home truths to his club.
Game over? No. Harry Kane had other ideas.
Harry Kane delivered the final goal of Tottenham's campaign, curling in his 30th of the league season to complete an exciting afternoon of football.
"We should have won after scoring four times away, particularly after leading 3-1", he said in quotes reported on Leicester's official Twitter account.
