Pochettino inadvertently hints at potential touchline ban

Kane's second-half goal at Borussia Dortmund yesterday morning (Singapore time) helped Spurs seal a 1-0 last-16, second-leg win to clinch a 4-0 aggregate victory.

Coming into the second leg at the Signal Iduna Park 3-0 down from the first leg at Wembley three weeks ago, they threw everything at Spurs in the opening 45 minutes, but could not make the most of their opportunities.

This is the first time Spurs have made the last eight of the Champions League since 2010/11.

"Hugo was great. We conceded more chances than we expected, but this type of game, when you beat them 3-0 in the first leg, is very hard - they have nothing to lose". "We are in the quarter-finals and it's a massive achievement for the team".

Roman Burki has told Goal that he would "love" to play alongside Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has repeatedly stated that he would rather move to the new stadium as soon as possible but the club has Wembley named as its venue on official paperwork.

Kane's strike destroyed Dortmund's hopes of a comeback.

He averaged 13.4 points per game in Houston, but he and the team quickly concluded it wasn't a fit and parted ways. Anthony was hoping to play again after his short stint earlier in the season with the Houston Rockets.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino's joy at seeing his side reach the Champions League quarter-finals looks set to be tempered by a likely touchline ban from the Football Association.

"Now we are in the quarter-finals, we hope we can finish and we can listen to the song". "We scored four goals, did not concede and this was against a team that is top of the Bundesliga with great players", said Pochettino, who was yesterday banned for two domestic matches and fined £10,000 (S$17,850) for confronting referee Mike Dean after the Premier League loss at Burnley last month.

He said: "Once you're in the last eight, you've got a chance".

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".

"We fully deserved this".

"After the first leg result, you could see the risks Dortmund took". The Spurs skipper came up big just as his team were enduring sustained pressure in a BVB-dominated first period, making a succession of stunning stops to add to his already impressive collection: there was one low down to his right from Weigl, another high to his left to deny Götze and a third from Reus's deflected effort.
