Harry kane away goal secure Tottenham's place in Champions League quarter final

Harry Kane fired Tottenham Hotspur into the Champions League quarter-finals as his winning goal at Borussia Dortmund in Tuesday's return leg sealed a 1-0 victory to wrap up a 4-0 aggregate success. 

On Monday, Spur coach Mauricio Pochettino had demanded they "finish the job" after beating the Bundesliga leaders 3-0 in the first leg at Wembley. His Spurs side delivered, soaking up everything Dortmund threw at them in a one-sided first half before Kane's goal just after the break killed off the hosts' spirited challenge. 

"It's always difficult in these type of games, you don't know whether to defend or attack," said Kane, who singled out Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris for praise after a string of key saves.

"They had a few moments. In that first half we needed everyone, defenders blocking it, Hugo saving it, that's what Champions League is about, you need everybody."

This is the first time Tottenham are in the last eight of the Champions league since 2010/11 when they bowed out 5-0 on aggregate to Real Madrid.

While, Ajax stunned the defending Champions Real Madrid with 4-1 at Bernabeu on tuesday. The humiliating loss meant Madrid was eliminated 5-3 on aggregate in the round of 16, leaving the club looking at a trophy-less season in its first campaign since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Juventus.
