Tottenham defender Michael Dawson admits everyone at the club are excited about the Champions League.

Dawson will get his first taste of Champions League football this season after Harry Redknapp's side overcame Young Boys in their play-off to book a place in the group stage of Europe's top club competition.

And with White Hart Lane set to host Inter Milan, Werder Bremen and FC Twente over the coming months, Dawson is excited about playing against the continent's elite.

"Just to be in the hat last Thursday was fantastic," he said. "To finally get in the group stages of the Champions League is a fantastic achievement.

On the thought of playing at Inter's famous ground, Dawson added: "The San Siro it's a fantastic stadium and it's going to be a good test for us and a good night and I'm sure we'll enjoy it."
