Tottenham goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini turned in a heroic display for their 1-0 Europa League defeat at Rubin Kazan.

If not for the Italian, Spurs would have lost by five or six.

Redknapp's assistant Kevin Bond was delighted with the 38-year-old's performance.

"Carlo pulled off one save in particular in the first half and a couple of other excellent saves for us tonight and that is what he knew he was capable of," Bond said on Thursday night.
