And we saw flashes of quality from both players during the match.

Substitute Fernando Llorente headed Spurs into dreamland three minutes later, and they will take their three-goal lead back to Germany for the second leg on March 5, a result that already looks beyond doubt unless Spurs stage a dramatic collapse.

Defender Jan Vertonghen scored once and set up another goal for Son Heung-min as Tottenham Hotspur beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday to give them the clear edge following the first leg of their last 16 Champions League tie.

Having been let off the hook after a potentially game-changing error by Foyth, Spurs did not pick up from there and continued their wobbly form for nearly the entirety of the first half.

Danny Rose is on the bench, while Harry Kane (ankle), Dele Alli (hamstring), and Ben Davies (groin) are all still in the treatment room.

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.

To play after Sunday, with one day less recovery [than Dortmund], we need to praise them. "We need to go to Dortmund with the idea to win". The Wembley crowd was there to see him in good numbers and the youngster did not disappoint, dancing past men nearly as if they weren't there at times in the first half.

"We are happy now but still a lot of work to do". His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every single game is improving and improving.

Yet Skomina called for a VAR check and after a number of replays, ruled that Tadic had been standing in an offside position when the goal was scored.

"3-0 is a very good result but at the same time we have to think that we have to finish the job".

'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.
