"We've got to go out there and understand that we can't give up goals like that, because there's still a second leg - that it's not going to be easy to play here and we've got to lock in and be able to defend crosses".
A breathtaking second-half display saw Tottenham overwhelm Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium - and take a 3-0 lead to Germany for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 showdown. Substitute Fernando Llorente grabbed their third in the 86th, two minutes after coming on.
"The first half was very hard, first of all because we never felt the confidence to play", said Pochettino as reported on ESPN. He could have stuck to the system but he changed their attitude in the second-half.
"There is still work to do".

Dortmund are five points clear at the top of the German Bundesliga.
The message from within the squad is that nothing will be taken for granted before the second leg on 5 March. I didn't have to do much (for the first goal) because the cross was unreal, the ball went to my foot, I just had to touch it. "And then the double strike towards the end killed us off. The project at Tottenham is fantastic but we're open to whatever offers might come our way".
"I've been in the stands and I've watched Spurs play in the Champions League many years ago so to play, get the win and do as well as we did makes it that little bit more special", Winks said. "There's no better way of doing that than beating Dortmund 3-0 at home".
It was one of his best performances in his six years in Tottenham, as recognised by many of their supporters when they reacted to the superb win on social media after the final whistle.
Dortmund, who had conceded just two goals in the group stage, tried to recover but found no way past the disciplined Tottenham backline.
