Eriksen wants more from Spurs in Europe
Tottenham should look to “go further” in the Champions League after reaching the quarter-finals, according to Christian Eriksen.
The Denmark international was delighted with the performance of the north Londoners on Tuesday after they went into their last-16, second-leg tie against German Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund at the intimidating Westfalenstadion looking to protect a 3-0 lead.
Despite being put under intense pressure from the hosts in the first half, Spurs defended valiantly and then snatched a crucial away goal through top scorer Harry Kane to seal a 4-0 aggregate success.
Mauricio Pochettino's men can low look forward to a last-eight encounter in the Champions League for the first time since 2011, but Eriksen is adamant that the players should not be satisfied by reaching this stage and must look to progress.
Asked if Spurs can win the Champions League, the 27-year-old said: "We take one game at a time. We are through to the next round.
"We have had our experience from the last few games and the last few years in the Champions League, and now we are this far.
"We have come a long way and we have done very well to stay consistent. Now we are further than last year, so it is a good first step and I hope we go further."
Punters may wish to use their free bet to back Spurs for European glory this season.
