Son hails Spurs' strength in depth after downing Dortmund

Spurs needed just two minutes after the restart to pull ahead when Heung-Min Son neatly sidefooted a volley into the back of the net, Vertonghen the provider with a well-timed cross.

They were also denied a first-half opener when Nicolas Tagliafico headed home but for the first time in Champions League history, the goal was ruled out after Slovenian referee Damir Skomina checked with the VAR and Dusan Tadic was judged offside.

With seven minutes of the game remaining, Tottenham managed to double their advantage in the tie through the impressive Vertonghen, who converted the cross from Spurs' other wing-back, Serge Aurier, before a glancing header from substitute Fernando Llorente to convert a fine Christian Eriksen corner four minutes from the end put Spurs in control of the tie.

Son has now scored in 13 matches for Spurs this season, and the north Londoners have won all of them.
