Harry Redknapp content with Tottenham draw


Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp insisted that he was happy with his side's performance, despite them letting slip a two-goal lead in their 2-2 draw at Werder Bremen.

An own goal and a Peter Crouch header gave Spurs a perfect start in the Weserstadion, but the home side hit back to deny Redknapp's men a win on their Champions League group stage debut.

Afterwards, Redknapp told reporters:"What lessons can I learn because they score? What can I do?

"How can they learn lessons? We're always talking about lessons – 'did you learn a lesson? Was it a lesson in Champions League football?'.

"No, it's a game of football. We're 2-0 up; they've got a goal out of nothing – it happens. If we play like that every game, we won't go too far wrong.

"It was a perfect 43 minutes. If we'd have been three or four goals up, it would have been a fair reflection of the play.

"From never having a shot or bothering the goalkeeper, they suddenly found themselves 2-1 and they had something to go for.

"They got that goal when, really, they were struggling to live with us and it gave them a lift.

"What can you do? I can't be angry. Yes, frustration. We came here for an away game in a very difficult place to come and play.

"That first half was as good as you could wish to see from us."
