Tottenham striker Peter Crouch believes his side thoroughly deserved to qualify for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League following their demolition of Werder Bremen.
Spurs swept the German outfit aside at White Hart Lane, running away comfortable 3-0 winners thanks to goals from Younes Kaboul, Luka Modric and Peter Crouch.
In their first Champions League campaign, the North Londoners have beaten every team in their group and are now assured of a place in the knockout rounds, with a trip to FC Twente their only match left in the pool.
Crouch, who netted Tottenham's third on Wednesday night, hailed his team's achievement and believes there is still a long way to go in the competition for Harry Redknapp's men.
He told Sky Sports: "It's a great achievement, we want to give a good account of ourselves in the next round.
"It was a great team performance throughout the Champions League campaign. We have played very well and deserve to go through.
"Every big club wants to be in the Champions League playing against the best teams in the world.
"We want to get as far as we can for the fans and for us as well."
Fellow goalscorer Luka Modric added: "Our aim was to qualify for the knockout stages, we are very pleased with that.
"It was comfortable for us. We scored three goals and could have scored more so we are happy.
"We showed we can compete in the Champions League."
Tottenham are currently top of Group A but are level on points with champions Inter Milan ahead of the final Matchday.
