Tottenham blow Borussia Dortmund away in brilliant second-half goal blitz

Favre considers Sancho sanction after passport mishap

The South Korea worldwide found the net for the fourth successive game, helping Spurs take a commanding lead in their last-16 tie.

Asked about Spurs winning again without two of their key players, Pochettino said: "It's good because the expectation when people watch Tottenham is not only to win, it's to see a performance like the dream team of Barcelona with [Johan] Cruyff or Milan of Arrigo Sacchi". They've won the possibility to have a few days off.

Billed as one of the more exciting last-16 ties, the first leg started off a restrained affair as Spurs resolutely held back the Bundesliga leaders in the first half.

We were playing with such composure that Dortmund could barely get the ball as we knocked it about, pulling them from side to side and being patient in our possession.

"Next time when Son scores I'll go to the dressing room and shower and wait for the end of the game", said Pochettino. "It's good, it's nice".

"Of course we are happy now because it's a good result but there's still a lot of work to do".

That in itself is reason enough for optimism about the inevitability of the electric transportation revolution. GM, Amazon and Rivian have yet to confirm the talks, even as the idea found support in Wall Street.

Son started a brilliant second-half display in the last-16 first leg at Wembley by opening the scoring from Jan Vertonghen's excellent cross, before Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente put Mauricio Pochettino's men on course for the last eight in the final seven minutes. But Tottenham's manager played down the success of his tactics.

"3-0 is a very good result but at the same time we have to think that we have to finish the job". If you win you're not a genius, if you lose it's not a disaster.

Pochettino was keen to praise 21-year-old defender Juan Foyth, who made only his second Champions League appearance and helped to deny Dortmund an away goal.

"It was a massive victory for us and the players deserve all the credit".

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

"I was a completely different type of centre-back, not with his quality".
