Tottenham overcame Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund 1-0 away from home tonight, thus becoming the first team to beat the Germans at their own backyard this season. The result meant that Spurs progress to the final 8 of the Champions League for the first time since 2011.

Several of Tottenham’s players put in great performances on the night with Spurs’ back line getting a lot of praise. Tottenham’s three center halves – Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen hardly put a foot wrong in the game.

Hugo Lloris also produced some fantastic saves to ensure Spurs kept a clean sheet. Another player who has been praised by a lot of fans for his display on the night was midfielder Moussa Sissoko.

The Frenchman produced yet another hard-working display, covering more ground than any other player on the pitch and helping break up the Dortmund attacks. He also set up Kane’s winning goal by playing a lovely through ball into the path of the England captain, early in the second half.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to Sissoko’s display:
