Spurs boss hails Spurs ‘heroes’ after Dortmund triumph

Spurs boss hails Spurs ‘heroes’ after Dortmund triumph

"In the second half we just dropped a bit and lost focus".

"Today it's 3-0 and maybe everyone says, "Oh, fantastic decision", or maybe if it's a different result I'm the worst coach in the world", he said.

His link-up with Pulisic, Gotze et al was a joy to behold and although he faded away like his team in second-half as Spurs took control, he certainly gave people the bang for their buck.

First, it was Sancho, who turned Sanchez inside out with a deft body feint in the first half.

"We need to go out there knowing it's going to be so tough and we need to perform like we performed today, in our best way and try to think that we need to win the next game if we want to be in the next stage of the Champions League".

Spurs, who were without Harry Kane and Dele Alli, will meet Dortmund in the return fixture on March 5. They deserve a lot of praise for the effort they are doing this season.

"Always when you play in this type of competition against a very good side like Dortmund it is hard", said the Argentine.

A late goal from substitute Marco Asensio helped Real Madrid narrowly defeat a determined and young Ajax squad on Wednesday night, as Los Blancos prevailed 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League Round of 16 match-up at the Amsterdam Arena. That was a gift. 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.

Sancho is just 18 but his performances for Dortmund this season have been absolutely sublime, leading to questions being asked of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Despite being pushed back for much of the first half, Tottenham had refused to surrender and their perseverance was rewarded in the 47th minute.

While Borussia Dortmund had the better of the opening 45 minutes, the second period was dominated by the Premier League side, whose pressing resulted in Jan Vertonghen gaining possession, before producing a stunning cross that Son Heung-min duly converted.

Fernando Llorente managed to cap off a fine win three minutes later by nodding home a cross from Christian Eriksen as Spurs will take a healthy lead into the second leg.
