Champions League Round of 16: Back Porto to Beat Roma

"It's always hard in these type of games, you don't know whether to defend or attack", said Kane, who singled out Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for praise after a string of key saves.

"If are not going to receive a help from our football people in our country only I can laugh".

Dortmund did everything they could to breathe life into the second leg in the opening period, but they came up against an inspired Lloris, who made a string of vital saves, most impressively to thwart Mario Gotze and Julian Weigl.

- Tottenham have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for just the second time in the club's history.

Honestly, the first bit is ridiculously easy - so easy, in fact, that you don't need us to tell you that the answer to question 1 is very obviously Robert Lewandowski.

Mauricio said: "I'm so proud, so happy for the players, for our fans, for the Club, for everyone".

"I don't know if the FA or the Premier League are to blame or television, who wanted us to play live Saturday or Sunday".

Tottenham, meanwhile, qualified for a maiden quarterfinal appearance under Mauricio Pochettino and might trouble some of the big teams in the upcoming matches.

With the hard work done in the first leg at Wembley, Tottenham knew that only a monumental slip-up would cost them their place in the quarter finals, although did have to withstand a Borussia Dortmund onslaught in the first half.

Here are the player ratings for the Borussia Dortmund players from the game.

However, Spurs came out all guns blazing in the second half and managed to equalise from the spot as Harry Kane calmly converted the penalty they were awarded.

"Now it's about enjoying that we are in the quarter-final. It was fantastic, the effort, the result, the job is done and now we need to wait for the draw".

"That is the turning point that we need to try and achieve".

Kieran Trippier has been left at home after starting the last two matches, but Harry Winks and Eric Dier have travelled with the squad after missing Saturday's north London derby and will be assessed ahead of the match.

Tottenham arrived in Dortmund with a 3-0 aggregate lead and predictably faced an early onslaught.
