BRAD FRIEDEL - The elder statesman looked slow this evening, failing to command his box. He was unable to stop any of Basle's penalties in the shootout. 5

KYLE WALKER - Relied on pace to get him out of trouble on the boggy St Jakob-Park pitch. Started poorly but grew as the night wore on. 7

JAN VERTONGHEN - Sent off after bringing down Marco Streller late on, which undid earlier good work including setting up the opener. 5

MICHAEL DAWSON - Produced some vital challenges as Basle upped the ante. Led with aplomb in extra time. 8

KYLE NAUGHTON - Caught out too many times down the flank but eventually settled. 6

MOUSA DEMBELE - Did not look his normal self tonight. The Belgian was at fault for Salah's opener and his passing was unusually awry. 4

SCOTT PARKER - Made some crucial challenges but struggled with the intensity in midfield. 5

LEWIS HOLTBY - Energetic as always but failed to make an impact. 6

CLINT DEMPSEY - Showed fantastic composure to round goalkeeper Yann Sommer and give Spurs a 23rd-minute lead, before netting Spurs' second-half equaliser. 7

GYLFI SIGURDSSON - Tottenham's biggest attacking threat. Playing on the left, he hassled throughout and provided some decent balls. 7

EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR - Failed to extend his scoring run to a third game. Looked out of sorts and failed to seriously threaten, eventually missing badly in the penalty shootout. 4


TOM CARROLL (Dembele, 58) - Considering his relative lack of inexperience, dealt with the pressure admirably. 7

TOM HUDDLESTONE (Parker, 77) - Made an immediate impact by playing a fine through ball for Dempsey net to his second of the evening. Impressed as makeshift centre-back after Vertonghen's red card. 7

BENOIT ASSOU-EKOTTO (Naughton, 78) - Did well after his late introduction and helped Spurs to hold out for penalties. 6
