Tottenham vs Dortmund: Son issues Champions League warning as Sancho explains disaster

Favre considers Sancho sanction after passport mishap

Toby Alderweireld went close to doubling Tottenham's advantage from a Christian Eriksen corner moments later, but Burki was on hand to keep his header out. They were fantastic. To play after Sunday, with one day less recovery [than Dortmund], we need to praise them.

Pochettino devised a clever game-plan that eventually frustrated Dortmund and secured Tottenham's first ever Champions League knockout-round win at home.

The first half of the first-leg, round-of-16 match at Wembley Stadium was scoreless as Dortmund put heavy pressure on Tottenham, but Son broke the deadlock just two minutes into the second half, striking the ball past goalkeeper Roman Bürki after collecting a ideal cross from Jan Vertonghen. But they are aware of the magnitude of Wednesday's result and the possibilities that it has opened up.

"But he was impressive in the first half". While Dortmund seems the favorite in Wednesday's matchup, a Tottenham with Kane and Alli back in the squad can take down almost any team in Europe.

Son has now scored in 13 matches for Spurs this season, and the north Londoners have won all of them.

After watching a Spurs team that contained three players - Juan Foyth, Davinson Sanchez and Harry Winks - under the age of 25, he saw parallels with Sir Alex Ferguson's side that would go on to win multiple honours. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics. "Then we will have a better result than thinking we are 3-0 already". "That was the most important message he gave to us".

'We always live our values, their offer was in the middle of a process where we built the stadium and had to pay it back, I guaranteed that I would stay and I'm quite happy with my decision, ' he added. "Of course he still needs to improve and learn".

Son's goal was his 11th in his last 16 games in all competitions, and his red hot form is forcing people to tout him as a potential PFA Player of the Year candidate.

"I was a completely different type of centre-back, not with his quality".
