The sound of music

Peter Crouch can't wait to hear the Champions League music again.

And while Spurs fans are eagerly-awaiting hearing the competition's anthem - officially called ‘Champions League' and written by British composer Tony Britten - for the first time at Young Boys tonight, ‘Crouchy' is somewhat of a veteran with 30 appearances in the Champions League for Liverpool.

"When that music plays it really does get you as a player," said the striker with 11 goals in European football's top competition. "It makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and I honestly think it makes you raise your game.

"I'm fortunate to have played in the competition before and these nights are always amazing.

"Under floodlights, with the crowd buzzing and the excitement reaching fever pitch, they really are fantastic occasions and for us to be in it is great.

"It will be amazing to hear the music back at White Hart Lane."

Crouchy is raring to get stuck into tonight's play-off first leg at the Stade de Suisse.

"I can't wait to get started," he said. "It's such an important game and the atmosphere in the second leg at White Hart Lane will be fantastic. The fans and club deserve it.

"Young Boys have beaten good teams to get here and it will be difficult.

"The away leg is very important. Ideally you don't want to concede and if you can get an away goal, that's fantastic."
