Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was pleased with their 4-0 win over Europa League opponents Shamrock Rovers.
Goals from Steven Pienaar, Andros TownsendJermain Defoe and Harry Kane gave Tottenham a resounding win over the Irish part-timers, but Rubin Kazan's 1-1 draw at PAOK Salonika meant Redknapp's team crashed out of the Europa League.
Redknapp was proud of his players, but admitted his team were facing an almost impossible task to qualify.
"We came and did the job we had to do but when you are in a situation like we were tonight and you are relying on another score, it is always difficult," he said.
"At half-time, with the Russian team losing 1-0 having gone down to 10 men very early in the first half, I thought maybe they will be beaten 2-0 or 3-0, and we would just need to win by three or four, but I had a feeling they would draw."
