Superb Second Half Performance

A suburb second half performance from the boys who should have had a penalty to put us 3-1 up and extra-time. Bentaleb had an excellent game in midfield and Chadli is starting to produce the goods at last, after showing up well against Arsenal.

The Second Half highlights:

Sigurdsson keeps getting caught defensively with the ball when pressed and Bentaleb looks twice the player he is.

Rose overlaps and doesn't cross the ball soon enough letting the defender get back to cover.

An excellent chip in from Chadi which Sigurdsson can't quite reach.

Bentaleb fires a ball wise to Townsend with a nice back heel gives himself a shooting chance which is deflected for a corner.

Superb challenge from Sandro prevents a dangerous ball into the box.

Bentaleb caught with nobody to pass to but it comes to nothing.

Good ball wise from Bantaleb to Townsend but he doesn't play the first time ball so Rose is offside when he does play it.

Harry Kane comes on for Roberto Soldado.

Harry Kane wins the ball, Townsend runs at the defence , gives it to Chadli who dinks inside and curls a tame shot at the keeper.

Another good fired ball wide from Bentaleb but Townsend able to look along the line is offside when he shouldn't be.

Christain Eriksen comes on for Andros Townsend.

Friedel clearance is headed on by Kane and finds Chadli on the left wing he runs at the box and fires the ball into the corner of the net from 19 yards. Spurs draw level 1-1.

Rose makes an interception, plays a cross field ball to Naughton who plays it wide to Lennon. His cross see a had down from Kane and Chadli fires the ball into the top corner. Spurs lead 2-1.

Bentaleb plays a brilliant cross field ball to put Naughton in but he can't beat the full-back.

Sigurdsson plays in Lennon who cuts the ball back but a Benfica player clears straight at the keeper.

Good anticipation from Friedel sees him comfortable save a good volley from Benfica.

Kane is pushed over when through and the referee refuses to give the penalty he should.

Lennon skips by two players and is charged to the floor in the middle of the park.

Chadli plays a superb cross for Sigurdsson to head but the keeper anticipates and claws in away.

Eriksen pays in Chadli on the right and a chip to Kane sees his back peddling header saved by the keeper.

Sandro gives a penalty away with seconds left, 2-2.

Final whistle.
