Robinho: We'll beat Spurs

Milan ace Robinho is convinced that his side can beat Tottenham in the Champions League this week.

The Rossoneri arrive for Wednesday's White Hart Lane clash a goal down after their 1-0 San Siro reverse.

"I honestly believe we can win in England," he told UEFA.com. "Our goal is to comeback from England having qualified for the next round of the Champions League."

Milan were pretty disappointing against Spurs last month and Robinho has called for more focus from his teammates.

"We will have to change our attitude and be even more focused," he added. "If we concede a goal things will become even more difficult, but anything can happen in football.

"Unfortunately, we lost the home leg in a difficult match. And we conceded a goal when we were playing better. But that does not mean we cannot win there.

"They play in a different way, focusing on physical strength, plenty of crosses into the box. I think they will play exactly the same way again."

Robinho joined Milan late in the summer transfer window and he has eyes on winning the greatest prize in European club football.

"It is a great competition and unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to win it," he added.

"So I hope to become a European champion here with Milan. It is a competition I love playing in, a difficult one, the toughest in European football. We hope to win it this season."
