Spurs head coach Tim Sherwood felt that last night’s game against Dnipro was turned on its head by Christian Eriksen’s free kick goal that sparked a surge of three strikes in 13 minutes which eventually took us into the last sixteen.
Despite going a goal down, Sherwood claimed he could sense victory as soon as Eriksen’s effort hit the back of the net.
“The fans were brilliant. You just feel it. I sensed it, as soon as we scored the equaliser I just thought ‘this is it’, another one of those nights at the Lane,” Tim said on the club’s official website.
“We took a real blow by conceding so early in the second half but we had the belief.
“We needed to show spirit and character and we certainly did that in the second half, especially after going behind.
“It was important to bounce back and I’m proud of the lads, the way they responded and kept this great club in the competition.”
We’re through but a tough tie with Benfica awaits. The first leg takes place at White Hart Lane on Thursday March 13th but if you fancy some entertainment in the meantime, take a look at last night’s Facebook comments after the Dnipro goal went in.
