Spurs boss Villas-Boas looking forward to 'Champions League' clashes with Inter Milan

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas told ITV that his side thoroughly deserved to go through over the two legs with Lyon.

Spurs needed a late Mousa Dembele strike to even things up on the night, and make it 3-2 on aggregate in favour of the English club.

"The second half was all about our football, and I think we deserved to go through," explained Villas-Boas.

"It was a great finish by Mousa. Sometimes we joke with him that he should shoot more."

Inter Milan await Spurs in the final 16, which excites the Portuguese manager.

"Excellent. I think it doesn't get any better than that. Two Europa League ties, but they'll be like Champions League ties."
