Tottenham blow Borussia Dortmund away in second-half goal blitz

  • Jadon Sancho

After a testing first half, the Belgian transformed into one of their biggest attacking threats after the break, providing a sumptuous ball for Son's goal and continuing to send in terrific crosses as the second half progressed - and to top it all off, Vertonghen got on the scoresheet with under 10 minutes to go.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli are still out of action, while Vincent Janssen has not been included in Tottenham's squad for the Champions League knockout rounds. "We showed that, Fernando came on too and scored an important goal". "When you have a team in front of you like Dortmund you need to respect them", Pochettino said.

Mauricio said: "I'm so happy but it's only the first leg and we need to finish the job". Maybe today everyone will say it was a fantastic decision.

"We were a little bit lucky because when Son scored it was a massive boost to our confidence". We were good in the first half but this is very bitter. That was a gift.

The Daily Express framed Pulisic and his "underwhelming performance against Tottenham" in the context of replacing star Eden Hazard (who is expected to join Real Madrid this summer) and noted that "fans on Twitter were not impressed at all by his performance at Wembley on Wednesday night".

It was nearly the ideal start for Tottenham on seven minutes, as Lucas Moura flashed his volley narrowly wide of Roman Burki's left-hand post.

It looked as if the hosts had taken the lead through Nicolas Tagliafico's scrambling header in the 37th minute, but the first use of a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in Champions League history deemed the Argentinian fullback offside.

EPL: Eden Hazard blamed for Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat to Man City
It's suggested for some months the manager and senior players have been at odds over Sarri's tactical demands. It could even have been worse for Chelsea as Aguero missed a good early chance and also hit the bar.


But Lloris spared Foyth's blushes as he blocked Pulisic's shot at the near post.

And former Arsenal manager Wenger said he attempted to sign Sancho before the teenager opted for Dortmund.

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

If Son was excellent, Vertonghen was even better.

However, the North London outfit doubled their lead with seven minutes remaining as Serge Aurier whipped a cross into the box where Jan Vertonghen was on hand to head home.

Fernando Llorente made it 3-0 just three minutes later from a corner, leaving Borussia Dortmund with a mountain to climb in the second leg.
