Son hails Spurs' strength in depth after downing Dortmund

"In that moment I think we started to feel comfortable too on the bench because we started to play really well".

Llorente's header from a Christian Eriksen corner sealed the 3-0 win.

Mauricio Pochettino saluted his Tottenham "heroes" as they took a huge step towards reaching the Champions League quarter-finals with a 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 first leg yesterday. So many good individual displays spiced Spurs second half performance.

Son, who has scored nine goals in 11 games against Dortmund, added: "The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal, I didn't have to do anything, just touch the ball".

With Dele Alli and Harry Kane in contention to return for second leg, there must be serious optimism about their prospects in this tournament.

Playing some pretty extravagant football at times, Mauricio Pochettino's side were no match for the tempo which Dortmund set and were playing catch-up for nearly the entire first period. "When you have a team in front of you like Dortmund you need to respect them", Pochettino said. After a tough first-half, the Belgian laid on Son's goal with a precision cross before banging home a volley of his own.

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.

"Jan is technically unbelievable and can play in any position".

'The second thing is the pressure form all the clubs.I say that freely because I wanted to take him from City when he didn't get the games.
