Tottenham enjoyed a rare win at Wembley on Wednesday night, with the north Londoners kicking off their Champions League campaign with a hard-fought victory against Borussia Dortmund.
The Lilywhites got off to a cracking start on the night, with Son Heung-Min firing home from the tightest of angles with just four minutes on the clock.
However, Dortmund would dominate for large periods of the game and they drew level just seven minutes later, via a fantastic first-time curling effort from Andriy Yarmolenko.
A frenetic opening period then saw Harry Kane net his first of the night, with the England striker blasting home after a strong run down the left.
Although as with the first Spurs goal, Dortmund ‘keeper Roman Bürki arguably could have done better as Kane’s shot slipped inside his near post.
Dortmund pushed for an equaliser and thought they nabbed it in the second-half, only for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s perfectly good half-volleyed finish to be erroneously chalked off for offside.
To rub salt into the wound for the visitors, Spurs would go 3-1 up soon after, with Kane firing home a low effort inside the far post.
Late on, Jan Vertonghen saw a harsh red card for a second bookable offence, after catching Dortmund sub Mario Gotze with a flailing arm.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side would go on see out the game, with the 3-1 victory a fine start for the Premier League side in a very tricky Group H which also includes Real Madrid.
