Spurs winger Lamela: I know I need to toughen up

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."
