The Brazilian's long-distance drive, which caught goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer off guard, broke the deadlock for Andre Villas-Boas' side in the second half at Craven Cottage.
Jermain Defoe secured the win with two more goals, which helped take the north London club up to fourth in the Premier League.
Sandro said: "I'm very happy, so so happy.
"It's my first goal of the season but I'm happy because we won. It was a great win. Everyone played really well and we have to continue playing like this.
"The supporters were fantastic again, right behind us all the time. We're all delighted."
The midfielder was evidently pleased to get on the scoresheet and admitted it is an area of his game that needs improvement.
"Sometimes you have to shoot. I have to shoot more, to try more. It was a good goal. I'm happy because it was an important goal," he concluded.
Sandro has been in impressive form for Spurs this season, having made himself a permanent feature in Villas-Boas’ starting eleven, and has subsequently been nominated for the Samba Gold trophy.
