Key takeaways from Borussia Dortmunds loss to Tottenham

Kane challenges Tottenham to 'step up' and improve under pressure

Harry Kane's unerring finish completed Tottenham's safe passage to their second-ever UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

Alderweireld insisted they are desperate to play their quarterfinal at the new stadium - and that could be crucial as the club battle to be ready on time. I feel very proud.

Time is short but the move can not come soon enough for Tottenham after construction delays this season forced them to play European games at Wembley for a third successive season. Sometimes the stadium wasn't full because the maximum on the capacity.

His Spurs side delivered, soaking up everything Dortmund threw at them in a one-sided first half before Kane's goal just after the break killed off the hosts' spirited challenge.

Pochettino's rope-a-dope game plan worked, absorbing the punches, and then dealing the knockout blow through Harry Kane on the counter, leaving Dortmund needing five goals and a miracle.

Chancel Mbemba joined Porto for £7m last summer and the former Newcastle player now finds himself also in the Champions League quarter-finals, kind of.

'We can enjoy it as it's a big achievement.

Their advancement to the last eight represents progression for Pochettino's men after they exited the competition at the last 16 a year ago and the boss hailed it as a "fantastic achievement". It was unlucky for us, but we played very well, especially in the first half.

"We're trying. The last game against Arsenal as well we worked hard, we dug in, concede and tried to get a good result".

But Dortmund will have no hope against Tottenham if it doesn't stop red-hot forward Son Heung-min, who cemented himself as a Dortmund killer February 13 by scoring in his team's 3-0 first-leg win.

Kane, who has scored 22 goals this season, said reaching the last eight would be proof his team has at least made progress.

"At half-time we said to pick up the energy a bit more and if we get a chance to take it and thankfully we did that", Kane told the club's official website.

'They are a very attacking side and put a lot of pressure on us.

"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.
