Pastures new for Tottenham

Lewis Holtby is no different from the rest of us, he has never heard of where he has gone either. Not long now to turn the box on and tune in for another game.

"I had never heard of Sheriff before," said Holtby when asked by reporters during the pre-game press conference with AVB.

"I thought they were based in Northern Ireland, but coming to places like this is always an experience, especially for young players. You learn a lot coming to these types of countries and playing these types of teams.

"It is important to take these kind of atmospheres into your game. You learn a lot of things. So from that point of view it's nice to have a group like this.

Sheriff dominate football in Moldova but come from the capital of Transnistria - a self-announced breakaway state unrecognised by an sovereign nation.

"I only heard of it 20 minutes before we arrived," he continued. "I got told it was a country within Moldova. That's a new one on me but a good experience to take with me and it has improved my geography.

"I am very pleased to be here. I can tell my grandchildren that I played in a part of Moldova that isn't Moldova."

"We have to be ready for them because it is going to be their cup final." The stadium for the clash s sold out.

"Every opponent we face in the Europa League sees us as the bigger side. We are Tottenham Hotspur, we are a fantastic club, we have got quality players throughout the squad, so everybody is buzzing when they play against us.

"It makes us proud to be in that position. But we are only concerned with trying to get our win, continuing our 100 per cent points tally and qualifying from the group as quickly as possible."

A win tonight will give us 9 points out of 9 with 10 generally being accepted as the tally usually needed. The game represents another opportunity to instill a winning mentality within the club. Approach every game and expect to win, then no complacency, put in the hard graft and achieve the aims before moving onto the next one.
