Pochettino hails goal king Kane

Borussia Dortmund's 4-0 loss over two legs is very deceiving based on their play in both legs.

Redknapp, who took Tottenham to their last Champions League quarter-final, which came in 2011, believes the current crop of players, coupled with a move into their new stadium, could shock the favourites.

"It's a massive achievement for the team".

Harry Kane scored the only goal of the game to take his Champions League goal tally for Spurs to 14, and become the club's record European goal-scorer.

To add to the misery, editorials commented on how Madrid had also lost midweek at home to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey and then again to the same club three days later, also at home, leaving them 12 points adrift of their arch rivals after 26 rounds in the La Liga.

High-profile mistakes from Lloris almost saw Spurs eliminated in the group stages, but when they needed their captain to stand tall to Dortmund's first-half bombardment the French goalkeeper refused to be beaten.

At Dortmund, Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino had demanded they "finish the job" after beating the Bundesliga leaders 3-0 in the first leg at Wembley.

"We were talking with (chairman) Daniel Levy on Monday and yes, my wish is to play in the new stadium".

"It's been a very particular season with a lot of circumstance, so to be in the quarter-final is a fantastic, I think this will be one to remember".

Said Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc: "After their goal, we were done".

That was a view echoed by Mario Gotze, who said: "When you saw how we approached the first half and how much energy there was in the stadium, that was very, very, very good, at a very high level".

However, despite a mature performance, Pochettino denied suggestions his team had proved they can step up at this level.

"If you look over the two legs, we deserved to win - we scored four goals and didn't concede any goals".

It is fair to say Lloris has attracted criticism at times this season for costly errors, but he was at the top of his game on Tuesday, particularly in the first half when he thwarted Gotze, Sancho, Weigl and Alcacer.
