This was a statement of intent, a statement that Tottenham Hotspur have come of age on this grand stage, as they overpowered Borussia Dortmund 3-0 to all-but seal their place in the Champions League quarter-finals in what was a glorious European night for them.

They travel to Dortmund in under three weeks time knowing it will take some extraordinary reversal for them not to reach the last eight for the first time since their first Champions League involvement in 2010-11.

Spurs missed Harry Kane and Dele Alli, of course, but Dortmund were also denied their two biggest goal threats in captain Marco Reus and Paco Alcacer.

“He’s magic, you know, Mauricio Pochettino” chanted the Spurs fans soon after the third goal went in and this was a magical night for them; a memorable, magnificent night.

Heung-Min Son started it; he broke Dortmund’s resolve with his 11th goal in 12 games and his ninth in 11 matches against Dortmund – a record stretching back to his time in Germany with Bayer Leverkusen.

Here comes the Son and he illuminated this encounter with the prospects made even brighter as Jan Vertonghen also added a volley and, then, substitute Fernando Llorente scored a third which surely ended any doubt as to the outcome of this tie.

Son has not scored more goals against any other team.
