Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are underestimated after beating Borussia Dortmund

0:37                                            Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino says Sancho's impressive Borussia Dortmund displays have not come as a shock

Time will tell how important our goals will be, particularly those two late strikes which gives the tie such a positive look in our favour, but we can not underestimate the importance of Lloris' save on the stroke of half-time.

"Harry or Dele are very important for us but we have players who can come in and do well".

Had that header gone in, it would have been a very different contest - but thanks to our skipper, it didn't and we were able to take full advantage at the other end upon the restart.

When Tottenham scraped through to the knockout stages of the Champions League, it was unthinkable that that they might play their next match in the competition with the team expected to line up at Wembley on Wednesday night. Our feeling was we never felt the confidence to play.

"Also we were a bit lucky because it was a massive confidence boost when Sonny scored - it made the team play much better".

"It was a massive victory and the players deserve all the credit".

"I don't have any words for the second 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".

Pochettino's decision to pick Jan Vertonghen as a left wing-back against Dortmund paid off handsomely as the Belgian set up Son's opener before scoring the second goal himself.

We were playing with such composure that Dortmund could barely get the ball as we knocked it about, pulling them from side to side and being patient in our possession. 'He was fantastic again.

"Of course we are happy now because it's a good result but there's still a lot of work to do".

"His smile, he translates good energy and his performance in every game is improving".

"I'm so happy for him, he was fantastic today", said the Argentine of his young countryman. But I prefer players who make mistakes trying to play.
