  1. It was frustrating to watch the highlights replay of the Borussia Dortmund 3-1 defeat to Tottenham. On top of the 2 disallowed (legal) goals scored by Dortmund, the Dortmund goalie needed to watch the game film of his own positioning. Both the first and second goal Dortmund conceded, the goalie was repeatedly beaten to the near post by a shot when Son & Kane had only a very narrow angle to shoot at both times; however, both shots went in. I would have had given the goalie the benefit of doubt if the shots went in at the far post.

  2. Dortmund looked awfully good for losing 3-1. And they had a goal from Aubemuyang (however you spell it) called offsides when he wasn’t. A fun game to watch with a lot of back and forth action.

    • Pulisic also had one called back at the end of the first half for offside, even though he wasn’t offside. Also, Kane should have been whistled for a foul on his first goal.
