UEFA Champions League Report: Tottenham Hotspur v Borussia Dortmund 13

Jadon Sancho has broken into the England set-up this season

Spurs did not manage a single shot on target in the first period of their round-of-16 clash against the Bundesliga leaders, but they took the lead through Son Heung-min moments after the break. "We knew very well that he was capable of doing what he's doing now, with game time".

"I feel responsible for keeping him on the ground". 'My players are heroes.

"3-0 is a very good result, but when you have a team like Borussia Dortmund in front of you, always respect and we need to think we need to go to Dortmund with the idea to win".

Mauricio Pochettino, the Spurs manager, refused to expand on what he called "rumours" but said he was not surprised by how well Sancho's career has developed. For me, I am happy.

'For me, it is only the first leg, it is only the first half of the tie. They were fantastic. To play after Sunday, with one day less recovery [than Dortmund], we need to praise them. Always, when you play a very good side like Dortmund, it is hard and there is still lots of work to do'.

Vertonghen, who surprisingly starred on the left wing, then made it 2-0 in the 83rd minute before substitute Fernando Llorente completed the scoreline in the 86th.

Pochettino continues to have to make do without Ben Davies, Dele Alli and Harry Kane, who are all injured.

Pochettino was told Spurs had won every time Son had scored this season.

South Korean forward Son - who has scored four goals in as many games since his return from the Asian Cup - gave Tottenham a "massive boost" by scoring the first goal, said Pochettino.
