Soccer – Pochettino revels in Real thrashing

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has hailed Tottenham as one of the best teams in Europe after they humbled Real Madrid with a 3-1 win in the Champions League on Wednesday night. England midfielder Dele Alli bagged himself a brace, while Danish international Christian Eriksen scored the third, before Cristiano Ronaldo earned a consolation goal. Having taken apart one of the biggest names in the game, Pochettino feels Tottenham, who are 16/1 with bet365 to win the Champions League, can now compete with the best on the continent as well as in the Premier League. "We now belong not only with the best in England, but in Europe," he said. "What we have to do is move to the next level and that is winning things. We're pleased, but it will mean nothing if we have not won anything."
