"That's what I said to Michael. I said to him if he felt OK he can take the penalty, but it's not just the penalty that cost us".

Kieran Trippier's corner was played short to Eriksen, who floated in an inviting cross for Davison Sanchez to power home a diving head for his first Tottenham goal in the 33rd minute.

However, Leicester City's players complained he was in an offside position.

Pochettino is well aware of the threat posed by the Germans as he tries to lead Tottenham into the quarter-finals of a European competition for the first time in his five-year reign. We have had a lot of opportunities, not just the penalty.
