Sancho returns to his home country this evening as Tottenham host Borussia Dortmund at Wembley.

The 18-year-old winger has been in incredible form this term registering eight goals and 10 assists in all competitions.

He is expected to start against Spurs as Marco Reus is ruled out with a thigh injury.

And Pochettino is wary of the dangers Sancho can cause his team on a crucial European night.s the feeling we can do it this year."

"We knew very well that he was capable of doing what he's doing now," Pochettino said.

"We were talking in the last few years that he was a massive prospect.

“Of course he is showing now in Germany that he can cope with the pressure to play in the Bundesliga or in the Champions League.

“And no, it doesn't surprise me. His talent is there and he's a very talented player."

Dortmund midfielder Thomas Delaney also spoke highly of his London-born team-mate.

"Jadon is a big, big talent, with talent comes opportunities and he has them for sure," Delaney said.

"But he is still 18 years old and he has done amazing. He is not where he is supposed to be, he is a rough diamond, he will get there.

"We try to keep him on the ground because he has a big, big future in front of him and he will do great things, but it takes hard work."

Meanwhile, Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen is confident the hosts can put one foot in the quarter-final with victory over Dortmund.

“We can beat anyone," said the Belgian.

"We have shown that last year. Over two games we were the better team against Real Madrid (four points from two group games) who were the eventual winners of the trophy.

"That is why it was a shame we could not do better last year because we felt we should have done better. That is why everyone has the feeling we can do it this year."
