Tottenham winger Erik Lamela knows he must toughen up to make it in England.

The Argentine moved to Spurs from AS Roma in August.

Lamela told Clarin: "English football is a lot more physical. It is not like the tactical game they play in Italy.

"I have talked a lot with my team-mates and I know I have to adapt quickly if I am to keep my place in the national team ahead of the World Cup."
