"It's odd for me that no one has said anything about that, because the first leg was the same".

Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris dealt with everything that the Bundesliga side could throw at him during a one-sided first half as they kept their 3-0 lead from the first leg intact.

Any hope built up by Dortmund's first-half performance swiftly vanished after half-time, however, as Moussa Sissoko fed Kane with a first-time pass and the England striker confidently fired past Burki.

"I think we need help from the FA, we need help from the Premier League, I don't know because I am not involved in the decisions", the Argentinian said. I'm so happy for the players, and the fans.

"Look what happened with Rennes in the Europa League".

Mauricio Pochettino has slammed the Premier League for not supporting English clubs in Europe.

Just under one hour to game time in Dortmund! .

"That is the turning point that we need to try and achieve".

"If we are not going to receive help from our football people in our country, only I can laugh".

Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side were stronger two years ago, according to the club's former manager Harry Redknapp. "They cancelled their game at the weekend to help or provide support for Rennes to play against Arsenal", he fumed. Or will Spurs keep their advantage and make it to the last eight in the Champions League? "It's a World Cup winners' mentality".


Harry Kane's goal earned Tottenham a 1-0 away win at Dortmund, denying the Germans even a single goal when they needed at least four at kick-off.

Spurs seemed content to absorb Dortmund's attacks while countering on the few opportunities they had.

"If they bring in two or three outstanding players in the summer, certainly they will be challenging again next year, maybe good enough to win it next year if they get the right players in".

"All in all, it was a very good match". We started the second half better and of course when we scored in the second half the players feel that the game was over and we were going to be in the quarterfinals.

"It's going to be tough".


"We need to show the same aggressiveness, play our way".

Tottenham arrived in Dortmund with a 3-0 aggregate lead and predictably faced an early onslaught.

Spurs will be without Dele Alli (hamstring) and Kieran Tripper, with both staying in London.

With the tempo having dropped, Spurs' Pochettino brought on Eric Dier, back from injury, to beef up the midfield in place of Harry Winks for the final 35 minutes.
