Younes Kaboul is refusing to admit that Tottenham are all but out of the Europa League following the 3-1 defeat to Benfica at White Hart Lane.
It was another frustratingly lacklustre performance from Tim Sherwood’s side who lacked creativity, movement and any sort of game plan. It was the first time we have lost to Portuguese opponents in any UEFA competition at the Lane.
We now face an uphill task in the return leg, but Kaboul who skippered Spurs in the defeat is not throwing in the towel.
“Everything is possible in football,” Kaboul said. “We will go there to win and see what happens.
“When we scored our goal we thought it gave us a bit of a push but we let one in straight away and then it was too late.
“We have to go for it next week.”
