"But Harry (Redknapp) said that all the fans want to see is a bit of passion, so he told us to go out and show that we're the better side and play with a bit of pride, and that's what we did.
"I love the Club and this is a massive opportunity for everyone at Spurs to be at Wembley. I don't know if there were nerves to start with, but all you've got to do is give 100 per cent.
"That's what the fans want to see and that's something I will always give for this Club because I'm passionate about it."
