Tottenham stun Dortmund at Wembley

Adjust Comment Print

A breathtaking second-half display saw Tottenham overwhelm Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium - and take a 3-0 lead to Germany for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 showdown. Heung-min Son volleyed Spurs ahead after two minutes, with Jan Vertonghen then capping off a fine performance with a goal to follow his assist.

On one flank was Jadon Sancho, who has been a revelation in the Bundesliga this season. 'My players are heroes. It was an awesome result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there. "Tottenham were the better team", said Sancho.

Danny Rose is on the bench, while Harry Kane (ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring), and Ben Davies (groin) are all still in the treatment room.

Pochettino devised a clever game-plan that eventually frustrated Dortmund and secured Tottenham's first ever Champions League knockout-round win at home. Maybe today everyone will say it was a fantastic decision.

"The first half was very hard".

"To play with one day less recovery, we need to praise them".

"We should have got the ball forward rather than played from the back for their first goal".

"After that we played a bit too hastily".

Lucas Moura gave Tottenham an early spark when he latched onto Davinson Sanchez's header and smashed a volley just wide from the edge of the area. However, a Christian Pulisic shot that forced Hugo Lloris into a save at the near post eight minutes later - after Juan Foyth was robbed of possession inside his area - showcased the threat BVB could pose.

"It's only the first leg, the first half of the tie".

If Son was excellent, Vertonghen was even better.

However, the North London outfit doubled their lead with seven minutes remaining as Serge Aurier whipped a cross into the box where Jan Vertonghen was on hand to head home.

"It's only the first leg, it's only the first half of the tie - 3-0 is a very good result but when you have a team like Borussia Dortmund, always you need to respect and we need to think that we need to go to Dortmund with the idea to win", said the Argentinian.
