‘Now go and beat Inter’
MAURICIO Pochettino is backing his Tottenham side to take their Champions League qualification hopes to the last group game after their escape act against PSV.
Spurs were on the brink of going out as their faltering Group B campaign looked like hitting a new low after Luuk de Jong put the Dutch side ahead after only 62 seconds at Wembley.
But captain Harry Kane scored two goals in the final 12 minutes to earn a 2-1 win and leave it all to play for going into the final two group games.
Inter Milan, who are three points ahead of Spurs after drawing with Barcelona, come to Wembley in three weeks and Pochettino believes they can pick-up three points.
Doing so would force a final-game decider at the Nou Camp in December.
“Two games to play, if we are capable of beating Inter Milan we are going to be with them on seven points with one game to play,” said Pochettino.
“In one game anything can happen. We will see if Barcelona have qualified for the next stage and we are going to go to Barcelona trying to win the game.
“The belief is still there, you know me, I am so optimistic.”
