Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur extended his scoring streak since his return to the team from Asian Cup duty in late January to four games with a goal against Borussia Dortmund during a Champions League match in London on Wednesday.
Son volleyed Vertonghen's cross beyond Roman Burki for the opener two minutes into the second half at Wembley.
And when the dust had settled on a memorable 3-0 win, nobody felt the elation more than him.
Vertonghen, who created and scored a goal tonight, was the talk of social media following Spurs' victory.
But for Spurs, their second-half performance and result against a side such as Dortmund is a timely boost going into a crucial period of the campaign, according to Hugo Lloris.
Although Tottenham still have to survive the second leg at Signal Iduna Park on March 5, they have a golden opportunity to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2011.

"In the first half we played a little - not nervously - but not with the confidence". Llorente also admitted that Harry Kane's injury played a key role in him staying as it would offer him more playing time. After a testing first half, the Belgian transformed into one of their biggest attacking threats after the break, providing a sumptuous ball for Son's goal and continuing to send in terrific crosses as the second half progressed - and to top it all off, Vertonghen got on the scoresheet with under 10 minutes to go.
Fernando Llorente says he's ready to sign a new deal with Tottenham.
