We're confident - Charlie

Vedran Corluka says every player dreams of stepping out in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

And the defender - nicknamed 'Charlie' - insists the lads are confident before the club's first-ever match in the group stages of Europe's elite competition at Werder Bremen tonight.

"The players are feeling very good before this game," said the Croatian international before training at Werder's Weserstadion on Monday.

"It's something new for us and something every player dreams of, playing in the Champions League.

"These are the games that show you can play against the best teams in Europe.

"We're very happy to be in the Champions League and very confident about this game."

Werder Bremen finished third in the Bundesliga last season and picked up an impresisve goalless draw at champions Bayern Munich on Saturday.

Harry Redknapp added: "We've watched every game they've played since the Champions League draw.

"They played very well at Bayern Munich and picked up a fantastic 0-0 draw there. It's a long time since a team stopped Bayern Munich scoring at home. We know all about them."
