Kane is a beast, says Dortmund goalkeeper Burki

Klopp Pochettino

Klopp Pochettino

Pochettino watched Spurs beat Borussia Dortmund 1-0 in the second leg of their last-16 tie, with Harry Kane scoring the goal that earned them a 4-0 aggregate win.

But Dortmund will have no hope against Tottenham if it doesn't stop red-hot forward Son Heung-min, who cemented himself as a Dortmund killer February 13 by scoring in his team's 3-0 first-leg win.

The Spurs boss also stressed that he wants to try and help English football and reiterated that the presence of four English teams in the last eight would be a massive boost to the Premier League.

Their advancement to the last eight represents progression for Pochettino's men after they exited the competition at the last 16 previous year and the boss hailed it as a "fantastic achievement". "We suffered a bit in the first half".

Mauricio Pochettino's men coped admirably in Kane's five-week absence with an ankle injury and his comeback actually coincided with a downturn in form as defeats to Burnley and Chelsea ended outside hopes of an assault at the Premier League title.

His manager, opponents and pundits heaped praise on Harry Kane as the England striker became Tottenham Hotspur's all-time top scorer in Europe and fired them into the Champions League quarter-finals.

"I think in the end it's not too much to analyse, it's just to enjoy that we are in the quarter-final".

United Kingdom police deal with multiple reports of suspicious packages
Another package sparked an evacuation Wednesday at the Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters in Edinburgh. One such line is the possibility that the packages have come from Ireland.

Pochettino said he received a single-word message from Spurs chairman Daniel Levy - "congratulations".

Said Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc: "After their goal, we were done".

"To move to the next level, it's not just about being professional today, we need to do more", he said.

'Of course you need some luck and a good 'keeper but we dug in and we knew if we did that we wouldn't concede which was so important'.

"We fully deserved this".

Dortmund would probably have gone through had they someone like Kane in their ranks as over the two legs they failed to take their chances.

Kane will take the headlines for his goal shortly after the interval, but goalkeeper Hugo Lloris deserves plaudits for repeatedly denying Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Julian Weigl in the first half.
