Tottenham captain Lloris urges calm after Royal Antwerp defeat

Tottenham captain Hugo Lloris urged calm after their Europa League defeat to Royal Antwerp.

Lloris insists the result should change Tottenham's ambitions in the group.

He said, "There are still four matches left in the group stage, and our goal is clearly to win the group. We make things complicated with this defeat, but we will still be there if we improve our performance.

"We did not bring enough intensity in the first half, and then they got their goal. Even though we got better in the second half, it was not enough.

"I do not want to take any credit from Antwerp, but from the first minute we should have done more."
