Mauricio Pochettino salutes Son and Spurs ‘heroes’ after Dortmund win

With a major helping hand from the increasingly influential Son, Mauricio Pochettino's side are in the thick of the Premier League title race and on course for the Champions League quarter-finals.

Tottenham had a number of quality performers in the 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night at Wembley and defender Juan Foyth was certainly one of them.

Return leg in Germany: "We can't afford to take anything for ganted, we've gained a great result tonight but we have to be careful, Dortmund are a very risky side".

Tottenham looked unfazed by the absence of injured captain Harry Kane and Dele Alli, scoring all three goals in a strong second half to take control of the tie and leave the Germans on the brink of a European exit. "That's why we need to be careful", Son said.

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

"We want to go there with a winning mentality".

Heung-Min Son, Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente all popped up with goals for the hosts, but the defensive performance was also impressive.

Last year, the government suppressed protests over poor living conditions in over 80 cities and towns. In January, Rouhani said Iran was dealing with its worst economic crisis since the Shah was toppled.

Boyhood Tottenham fan Winks was 15 years old when Spurs played their last quarterfinal tie in the competition, against Real Madrid, and he remembers the night well.

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

He cost Spurs just £8million (Daily Mail) and he already looks good enough to play an important role on a regular basis.

Son Heung-min was praised by Mauricio Pochettino after the forward's goal set Tottenham on their way to a 3-0 victory at Wembley.

"Today it's 3-0 and maybe everyone says, "Oh, fantastic decision", or maybe if it's a different result I'm the worst coach in the world", he said.

"We've got to go out there and understand that we can't give up goals like that, because there's still a second leg - that it's not going to be easy to play here and we've got to lock in and be able to defend crosses".

"I am very happy for him, he deserved it". It is special playing for Tottenham in the Champions League'.
