SPURS 3-1 DORTMUND

It's all over at Wembley and Spurs kick their Champions League campaign off with a fine performance against a strong Borussia Dortmund side. Harry Kane's brace and Son Heung-min's early opener proved too much for a Dortmund, who played their part in a pulsating clash but ultimately failed to take their chances.

90+4: CHANCE! Eriksen slots Sissoko through on goal he cannot find the finish as his scooped effort drifts woefully wide.

SPURS 3-1 DORTMUND

90+2: RED CARD FOR VERTONGHEN! Vertonghen shown a second yellow after the referee adjudges him to have elbowed Gotze. There is contact but it's harsh, with contact unintentional.

86: Dortmund play their way out nicely from the back as Aurier and Sissoko look to atone for losing the ball by pressing hard. The visitors work the ball up to Yarmolenko on the right, he plays it inside to Sahin but he's unable to find the target, firing wide.

SPURS 3-1 DORTMUND

83: SUB! First change for Spurs as Moussa Sissoko replaces Son Heung-min.

SPURS 3-1 DORTMUND

81: CHANCE! Kane is a whisker away from securing his hat-trick as he gets on the end of Eriksen's clever headed pass, but his effort deflects off substitute Zagadou, with the officials again failing to spot the deflection. 

SPURS 3-1 DORTMUND

80: SUB! Second change for Dortmund as Torpak makes way for Zagadou.

SPURS 3-1 DORTMUND

76: CHANCE! Kane is released down the right flank yet again and cuts the ball back to Eriksen at the edge of the area, who sees an effort deflect over the target. The referee somehow fails to spot the deflection though, and awards Dortmund a goal kick.

SPURS 2-1 DORTMUND

51: CHANCE! Another chance for Spurs to extend their lead goes begging as Eriksen plays Kane through on goal and this time he does decide to pass to Son.
