Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was delighted his attacking selection came up trumps in their Champions League victory over FC Twente.

Redknapp defended his adventurous team selection after they claimed second place in Group A.

"We picked an open team who went for it. We could have played with one up with Van der Vaart behind, but went for it and got four goals," said.

"It was a fantastic result. We won 4-1 so I picked the right team. It's not a problem.

"You pick different teams for different games. I felt we'd take a chance tonight but there are certain games where you wouldn't do that.

"It was a great night for us. It was a great atmosphere and we won the game. You can't do much more than that."
