Depleted Spurs praised for ‘moral victory’ at Benfica, despite going out of Europa League [Tweets]

1-3 down from the first leg and up against a side with an awesome unbeaten home record, Spurs were on a bit of a hiding to nothing tonight.

But they fought like lions, and restored some pride to the shirt after recent performances, with a makeshift team nearly winning the game on the night, indeed nearly taking it into extra-time, only to have to content themselves with a draw in the end.

Even though it finished 5-2 to Benfica on aggregate, the general consensus is that Spurs can be proud of their performance, and now concentrate solely on the league after bowing valiantly out of the Europa League.
