Micky Hazard admits that he “feared the worst” about Tottenham’s chances of getting a win against Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.
Spurs won their first home game of the season to get their Champions League campaign off to a flyer with a 3-1 victory over the Germans thanks to goals from Heung-min Son and a Harry Kane brace at Wembley.
Dortmund controlled most of the game but were nowhere near as clinical as Mauricio Pochettino’s men, who on two occasions made the most out of some bad goalkeeping from Roman Burki.
Former Spurs player Hazard has also admitted that the Bundesliga giants were on top form against his old club on Wednesday in what was a breathless affair between two sides desperate to reach the knock-out rounds.
“Dortmund were brilliant last night, got to be honest at half time I feared the worst, but we were brilliant second half and fully deserved win,” said Hazard on his personal Twitter account on Thursday morning.

Tottenham have been dealt a tough draw in Group H with holders Real Madrid also going to prove a stern test for the London side.
The reigning European champions breezed past whipping-boys APOEL Nicosia 3-0 on Wednesday, leaving them to top the group while Spurs sit in the second place spot after gameweek one.
Pochettino’s men return to Premier League action on Saturday when they welcome Swansea to Wembley while their next Champions League fixture is against APOEL in Cyprus in two weeks’ time.
