UCL: Wembley Stadium Curse Is Dead – Pochettino
Tottenham beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, a result that made manager Mauricio Pochettino believe the Wembley curse is over.
Son Heung-Min strike opened scoring in the 4th minute before Harry Kane scored a brace to seal maximum points and ensure Tottenham opened their Group H campaign on a winning note.
The victory was Tottenham's third in their last 13 matches at Wembley and their first since moving into the English national stadium this season while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

"I hope that can help us to stop the talk of the hoodoo and everything. It's fantastic to start well in the competition, but also to stop everything that was around the team here," he said.
Pochettino said the three points means so much to his side because of the perception of the Wembley stadium.
"To win here is so important for our confidence, for the players and the fans, and the perception of what we can do in the future."
Tottenham will hope to keep the winning momentum when they host Swansea City in an English Premier League fixture at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
