Van der Vaart: Spurs will beat Inter for me

Rafael Van der Vaart admitted Tottenham's 4-1 victory over FC Twente was one of the more eventful of his career, but was impressed enough by his team-mates to suggest they can beat Champions League holders Inter next time out.

The Netherlands midfielder will be missing from Spurs' visit to the San Siro in a fortnight, after being sent-off against the reigning Dutch champions.

But Van der Vaart, who also scored and missed a penalty against Twente, believes that his side can build on their victory, and even beat Inter.

"Of course after the red card it was difficult,'' Van der Vaart said on Sky Sports. "I was worried we wouldn't win the game but in the end the guys played fantastic.

"It was a strange game, also for me. I scored, missed a penalty and was also sent off. [But against Inter] They are going to win for me."

Aside from Van der Vaart's penalty miss, Spurs were twice on target from the spot - Roman Pavlyuchenko netting twice from 12 yards before Gareth Bale put the result beyond doubt.

And Bale claimed his side deserved all three of their penalties, saying: "If they're penalties they should be given and I think they all were tonight.

Captain Ledley King seemed less certain, saying: "The referee seemed to take a while to give them, I don't know if he was listening to the official behind the goal,''

King was pleased with the win, though, following their opening 2-2 draw at Werder Bremen.

"We got a good draw at Bremen and it was about following that up by getting three points by any means necessary,'' he said. "It's a good start so far but that's all it is.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp felt his side's first two penalties were deserved, but was less sure of the third.

"The first one was a blatant penalty, he wrestled Peter Crouch to the floor; the second one was a blatant penalty, brought Gareth Bale down; the third one was a soft one,'' Redknapp said on Sky Sports News.

Redknapp also revealed he was thinking of taking off Van der Vaart as he feared he would get himself sent off.

"He was a bit rash,'' said the Spurs boss. "I was thinking about subbing him when he was on a yellow. I had a feeling he might make one more silly challenge.''
