Tottenham have received praise from far and wide after they put on a terrific display to overcome Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie.

After what was a cagey first half, Tottenham upped the ante in the second half and put the Bundesliga leaders to the sword with three second-half goals.

Son Heung-Min opened the scoring soon after the interval before both Jan Vertonghen and Fernando Llorente came up with late goals to effectively put the tie hopefully beyond Dortmund.

One person who was complimentary of Spurs after the performance was former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman who was covering the game for beIN SPORTS, compared the current Spurs squad to the infamous ‘class of 92’ which boasts of the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville.

Wenger, however, admitted that the real test for the current Spurs team would be to see if they are now capable of crossing the final hurdles and start winning trophies.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, the former Arsenal manager said: “I am an Arsenal fan so it is a bit of a sensitive subject for me but what I want to say is that they have the generations of young players.

“They look like the Manchester United generation of Giggs, Scholes, Butt, Beckham and Neville. They made it to the complete top.

“You feel there is something there at Tottenham but they have not shown the maturity in the decisive moments to get there.

“That is the target now to come to maturity in the next two to three years and show that.”
