Of course I am very proud for our fans and the club.

I am more than happy." 2.


(SOUNDBITE) (English) TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR COACH MAURICIO POCHETTINO , SAYING: "It is a season, a very particular season.

There are a lot of circumstances and I think that to help the club to achieve, not only to be in the quarter-final but to be in a good mood in that moment that we change again and to move and to open our new stadium.

I think it is a fantastic season and I think it is a season that we are going to remember.

Of course we are going to be in the quarter-final, of course it is a massive achievement for the team." STORY: Tottenham Hotspur beat hosts Borussia Dortmund 1-0 on Tuesday (March 5) thanks to a Harry Kane winner, to stroll into the Champions League quarter-finals for only the second time in their history with a 4-0 aggregate victory.

Kane, who missed the first leg through injury, fired in the winner shortly after the restart to silence a fiery home crowd and leave Dortmund needing five goals after having lost 3-0 in London last month.

The Germans, who have seen their seven-point lead in the league evaporate in recent weeks and are also out of the German Cup, have never overturned a 3-0 first leg deficit in the competition.

Despite a valiant effort in the first half, they were unable to score.

For Tottenham, whose only other quarter-final appearance came in the 2010/11 season, it turned out to be an easier task than expected.

Dortmund made their intentions clear with a formation that included five attacking players including captain Marco Reus, Paco Alcacer and Mario Goetze for the first time together in a starting lineup.

They had more than 70 percent possession as Spurs pulled back, but after half an hour the best chance fell to the visitors when Son Heung-min, who scored once in the first leg, fired wide after breaking clear with only keeper Roman Buerki to beat.

There were some worrying moments for Spurs late in the first half, but keeper Hugo Lloris made a string of superb saves to deny the hosts.

Dortmund picked up where they left off after the break with Reus, who had scored twice in two previous outings against Spurs, coming close again.

But Kane stunned the hosts when he was given far too much space at the edge of the box and scored with a thumping finish to kill off the tie.

The visitors then had little trouble to manage the pace of the game against the frustrated Germans and book their ticket to the last eight in the competition.
