Pulisic: Dortmund 'mentality' to blame for Tottenham defeat

Fernando Llorente in action for Tottenham against Watford

Vertonghen, who scored his first ever Champions League goal to double Spurs lead with a fine finish, admitted it was a "special" night for him.

Harry Winks and Fernando Llorente remain wary of Borussia Dortmund after their dominant Champions League last-16 first-leg performance at Wembley.

Spurs boss Pochettino described the match as a game of two halves, but the Argentine believes his side's confidence shone through in second to help his team pull away.

Mauricio's lineup was always the most anticipated note, after being hampered with many injuries afore Wednesday's result, and the Argentine didn't disappoint and delivered a blinder. "That's why we need to be careful", Son said.

The Bundesliga leaders had dominated the first half but Son put Tottenham in front in the 47th minute, making a perfectly timed run to meet Jan Vertonghen's cross and finishing with a cushioned volley.

Dortmund were the more risky side in the opening 45 minutes of the round-of-16 tie at Wembley, registering four shots on target while Spurs managed none.

The statement came after the caller compared the treatment that Meghan Markle has been receiving from the press and her critics. Meghan Markle's father could not make it to her wedding to Prince Harry.

"If they had spoken to me, we would have met each other and I think Tottenham would have agreed to speak".

The Spurs' boss kept his faith in young 21-year-old Juan Foyth, who formed part of an unmoved back three and was gifted a three-goal advantage with no reply. He wanted us - from the defenders to the attackers - to be as compact as possible and to press as a unit. "Tottenham were the better team", said Sancho.

"We have been there a couple of times over the last years".

Dortmund, themselves missing injured captain Marco Reus and top striker Paco Alcacer, gradually took control and had the better chances in the first half with Christian Pulisic firing onto keeper Hugo Lloris and the Frenchman saving a point-blank header from Dan-Axel Zagadou.

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

"Unfortunately, we just weren't locked in on their crosses and they were able to score off three crosses, and we've got to work on that".
