Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp thought his whole team had been brilliant in Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League success against last season's winners of the competition, Inter Milan.
Gareth Bale once again stole all the headlines for a superlative display, following on from his performance in the San Siro a fortnight ago when he scored a hat-trick in Spurs' 4-3 defeat, by giving Maicon another wretched evening.
Redknapp said of former Southampton star Bale:"Maicon is rated as the best right-back in the world and what he's done to him over the last two games is amazing.
"He can cross, his left foot is great on the run, he can shoot, dribble, head it, he's got everything.
"He was brilliant but the whole team was brilliant tonight, from Carlo (Cudicini), every one of them. There wasn't one of them tonight who didn't work and do exactly what we asked of them.
"It was an outstanding performance, one of the great nights, I would think, at White Hart Lane that the fans have seen.
"It was a fantastic night. From the first to the last we played unbelievably. We pressed them, outworked them, outplayed them all night.
"We're in a good position now. It was a big game, playing Inter Milan at White Hart Lane, and everyone was here. All the Spurs fans can look back on it and I'm pleased to be part of that.
"You have to put in perspective who we're playing against – Inter Milan, the Champions League holders. The opposition is top, top class and for us to play like we did against them was a fantastic performance."
