Tottenham winger Gareth Bale hailed goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after a hard-fought point against Lazio in Rome.
Spurs needed the French stopper to keep the Italian giants out and claim a point that keeps their qualification hopes alive.
“It was great to be captain, a real honour and good that we worked hard as a team and picked up a well-earned draw,” Bale said.
“We had a couple of chances in the first half but didn’t get that bit of luck we needed.
“Hugo is one of the world’s best and he showed that. He had a great game.
“If you take into consideration Lazio’s quality and the fact they were at home, a draw is a positive result for us and it’s still in our hands to qualify.”
