Jan Vertonghen puts Spurs within touching distance of Champions League quarter-finals

Jan Vertonghen puts Spurs within touching distance of Champions League quarter-finals

That was Son's ninth goal against Dortmund in 11 matches, with the South Korean, who played in the Bundesliga from 2010-15, having also scored twice in the competition's group stage last season.

Goals from Son Heung-min, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente secured a memorable win for Tottenham in their Champions League last-16 first leg against Borussia Dortmund.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen hailed Son Heung-min, saying the "special" attacker was one of the best players in the Premier League.

"The first half we played really well".

The sides will meet again in Germany on March 5 and Pochettino warned Spurs not to take their place in the quarter-finals for granted after a host of dramatic comebacks in the Champions League in recent seasons.

Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he put on a half-time video session to remind his players of the game plan during Tottenham's emphatic 3-0 Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund.

"Everyone who is playing in the Champions League now they look at each other and see who the strong teams are".

Son has now scored in four consecutive matches since returning from the Asian Cup in January, helping to fill the gap left by injuries to Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

"The first half was very hard, first of all because we never felt the confidence to play", said Pochettino post match. "That's why we need to be careful", Son said. We are very pleased with the result and are in a good position for the away game now.

"Next time Son scores I will go to the dressing room, have a shower and wait for the game to finish", he joked to the media".

Jadon Sancho: "I've been very impressed by him - he's a player with incredible qualities". "He translates good energy and his performance in every game is improving". But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

Dortmund, themselves missing injured captain Marco Reus and top striker Paco Alcacer, gradually took control and had the better chances in the first half with Christian Pulisic firing onto keeper Hugo Lloris and the Frenchman saving a point-blank header from Dan-Axel Zagadou.
