Hugo Lloris kept Dortmund out in the first half with fine saves from Marco Reus, Julian Weigl and Mario Gotze as the hosts went gung-ho, while Heung-Min Son poked wide having gone through on goal during a rare Tottenham attack.

But Kane’s vital away goal flattened Dortmund, producing a fine finish having been played through on goal by Moussa Sissoko (49), and with it becoming Spurs’ all-time top European scorer.

The result means Spurs reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2011, with the draw for the last eight on March 15.
