Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are underestimated after beating Borussia Dortmund

Favre considers Sancho sanction after passport mishap

Dortmund's rapier attacks were led by teenager Jadon Sancho, who left Manchester City to join Dortmund in 2017 without ever playing for the Premier League team.

"It was a massive victory and the players deserve all the credit".

"And then before you know it he's hit the ground running and he's now not only a key part of Dortmund's team but from England's point of view, come March it wouldn't surprise me to see him starting out here at Wembley". For these boys it'a test because they are rich before they play'.

Pulisic has rarely played in league play this season, but he got the start in the wings along with Jadon Sancho over Raphael Guerrero and Jacob Bruun Larsen for the Bundesliga leaders, who were missing forwards Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer and two other starters through injury or illness. They've won the possibility to have a few days off. It was an unbelievable result and the players deserve massive praise but we need to think that it's going to be tough to play over there.

He added: "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".

"Next time when Son scores I'll go to the dressing room and shower and wait for the end of the game", said Pochettino.

Dortmund started brightly at Wembley but Tottenham seized control of the match with second-half goals from Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente.

"Sonny was fantastic again". His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every single game is improving and improving. "If it was a different result, people might say I'm the worst coach in the world", he said. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics. "You just need to take the right decision the next time because football is about winning".

Despite his failure to win a trophy bringing him under unprecedented scrutiny this season, Mauricio Pochettino remains unfazed and continues to work wonders at Spurs on a shoestring budget. He's so fearless, braver than the people expect. I want to congratulate my players.
