Peter Crouch has loved every minute of this season's Champions League experience so far - and he believes it can get even better.
Peter Crouch has loved every minute of this season’s Champions League experience so far – and he believes it can get even better.
We go into Tuesday night’s final group game at FC Twente already through to the knockout stages in this our first taste of Europe’s elite club competition.
And now the aim is to get the victory we need – what would be our first on the road in the competition - over the Dutch champions to finish top of Group A.
‘Crouchy’ believes that would be another significant landmark having already enjoyed an impressive journey to this stage.
He said: “We’re making progress all the time in this competition. We’re really pleased to be involved in it and doing so well, so another step would be to win away from home.
“It’s been fantastic. We were 4-0 down in Milan but came back and, other than that, it’s been very positive. It’s our first year in the competition, we’ve really enjoyed it and we all want a lot more of it.
“We’ve beaten the European Champions at White Hart Lane quite convincingly, I think we thoroughly deserved to beat Inter Milan, and there’s no-one we should fear.
“We’ve performed very well against top opposition and we should go into every game, as we do, trying to win.
“We won’t be resting on our laurels at all. We’ll be going out there trying to win this game because finishing top is very important and hopefully the journey in the Champions League will continue.”
Twente were beaten 4-1 at the Lane on Matchday 2 in September, but ‘Crouchy’ added: “We know that it will be a difficult game and a different game from the one at home.
“But we’re ready for them, we’ve watched videos and looked at the way they play. We’re confident we can get a result.”
