Tottenham Hotspur ease into UEFA Champions League quarter-finals with Borussia Dortmund win

Harry Kane cemented his place as Tottenham Hotspur's leading scorer in European competitions as the North Londoners advanced to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals with 1-0 (4-0 on aggregate) win over Borussia Dortmund.

Spurs have gone from being Premier League contenders to also-rans in the last fortnight but put that disappointment behind them to advance to the Champions League's last eight with victory at Signal Iduna Park.

Tottenham have not made it to this stage of the competition since the 2010/11 season when they were beaten by Real Madrid.

Kane's 24th goal for Spurs in Europe proved to be the difference after a comfortable 3-0 win at Wembley Stadium in the first leg. 

It was far from an easy win for Mauricio Pochettino's side who were outshot 19-5 by their hosts and only managed a single effort on target in Germany. But it mattered not.

With BVB trailing they piled on the pressure and it took a fine display from Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris to repel the Bundesliga leaders on several occasions.

After a goalless first half Spurs got the only goal of the game four minutes into the second period. Moussa Sissoko released England captain Kane who advanced before firing past Dortmund keeper Roman Bürki with unnerving accuracy. 

Kane had previously been level with ex-Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe on 23 European goals for the North London club.
