Spurs left it late once again but Moussa Dembele’s last minute goal earned us a place in the last 16 of the Europa League and next up is Inter Milan. Head Coach Andre Villas-Boas praised his players and said that the result was no more than they deserved.
“I think it’s fully deserved for what we did over the two legs,” said AVB on the club’s official website. “The team did extremely well in the second half to come back into the game and overall, I think we deserved to go through.
With Lyon despatched, attention now turns to Inter Milan and naturally, there are memories of our classic encounters in the Champions League.
“We had two magnificent games against Inter and we just want to recreate special night that everyone remembers at the club,” Andre added.
“Going through against Inter Milan and Lyon puts you in a good place to win the competition.”
Late goals have been a feature of Tottenham’s play in recent weeks but could Moussa’s long range effort be the most important of all? One thing is certain – this current Tottenham team have made the Europa League seem far more special than it did during the last campaign.
