Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul is not throwing in the towel despite his side's 3-1 Europa League defeat to Benfica.

Spurs will head to Portugal for the last-16 second leg with it all to do after a horror night at White Hart Lane.

Christian Eriksen's free-kick was the only bright spot as Spurs failed to heed Tim Sherwood's warnings about improving their performances.

"Everything is possible in football," Kaboul said. "We will go there to win and see what happens.

"When we scored our goal we thought it gave us a bit of a push but we let one in straight away and then it was too late.

"We have to go for it next week."
