Jan Vertonghen praised Tottenham's second-half performance as the hosts claimed an emphatic first-leg victory over Borussia Dortmund on a "special" Champions League last-16 night at Wembley.

"We were able to keep them quiet in the second half and they weren't able to be clinical.

"It was at Wembley too in the Champions League so it was special.

The game changed in the second half definitely."

Vertonghen, operating as a left wing-back with Ben Davies sidelined and Danny Rose only fit enough for the bench, claimed an assist in addition to his 83rd-minute strike and drew special plaudits for a particularly accomplished display.

"They dropped off a bit then that early goal in the second half helped.

After a tense opening 45 minutes in which Dortmund played some excellent football, Tottenham took the initiative after the interval as Heung-min Son volleyed home his 11th goal in 12 matches before further efforts from Vertonghen and substitute Fernando Llorente.
