Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are underestimated after beating Borussia Dortmund

Favre considers Sancho sanction after passport mishap

He will be one of Dortmund's main threats against Spurs in the first leg at Wembley, particularly as the Premier League club look set to play Jan Vertonghen at left-back.

"We knew very well that he was capable to do what he is doing now with game time", said Pochettino.

Son's fourth goal in his last four appearances took him to 16 for the season, but none have been as priceless as this one. It was a fantastic game, a massive effort. My players are heroes, whatever happens, they deserve full credit and a lot of praise.

"They deserve full credit, a lot of praise because the effort they are doing this season is incredible".

The sides will meet again in Germany on March 5 and Pochettino warned Spurs not to take their place in the quarter-finals for granted after a host of dramatic comebacks in the Champions League in recent seasons. 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.

"Of course 3-0 is a very good result but when you have a team in front of you like Borussia Dortmund I think always you respect them and of course we need to think we need to go to Dortmund with the idea to win".

"I think we were talking in the last few years that he was a massive prospect to be a very good player".

The timing of the first goal was very important, the cross was unreal. Maybe today everyone will say it was a fantastic decision.

This provided them with the base to score two more goals, inspite of what was a disastrous first-half showing. Now we are in England and you are world famous for hyping your players.

"We had the confidence to keep going".

Spurs broke the deadlock two minutes into the second half through Son Heung-Min, who sent a fine volley past Roman Burki from close range.

"They get a lot of money before they have played games". That was a gift. "And after that we tried but played a bit too hastily".

The Daily Express framed Pulisic and his "underwhelming performance against Tottenham" in the context of replacing star Eden Hazard (who is expected to join Real Madrid this summer) and noted that "fans on Twitter were not impressed at all by his performance at Wembley on Wednesday night".

But Lloris spared Foyth's blushes as he blocked Pulisic's shot at the near post. Pochettino also got his players to get closer to Jadon Sancho, and the England worldwide was subdued in the second period.

Having had their own issues with injury and player unavailability in recent times, Tottenham Hotspur had been all but dismissed by the critics as no-hopers, both in terms of the title race as well as the Champions League.

However, the North London outfit doubled their lead with seven minutes remaining as Serge Aurier whipped a cross into the box where Jan Vertonghen was on hand to head home.
