Peter Crouch sees no reason why we cannot go further than the Quarter-Finals of the Champions League having reached the last eight this week.
The striker, who made the Final of the competition with Liverpool in 2007, feels we have shown enough pedigree up until this stage in what is our first time in Europe’s elite club competition.
As well as our two-legged Round of 16 success over AC Milan, ‘Crouchy’ cites winning a group that included holders Inter as a reason for the rest of the continent sitting up and taking notice.
So he is full of belief ahead of the draw for the next stage, which takes place a week today (Friday March 18).
‘Crouchy’ said: “All the players, the fans and staff are delighted to have reached the Quarter-Finals – it’s a big achievement.
“It’s our first time in the Champions League and getting through the group stages was great, as was beating Milan away and getting the result at home on Wednesday.
“I think we proved ourselves over the two games we played against Inter earlier in the competition, and winning out in the San Siro against AC gave us more confidence and we finished the job.
“Now we’ve got more to do, we believe we can go further and we’re looking forward to the draw for the next round.”
