Share Alli: Eriksen-change made the difference in the comeback

Tottenham were behind with 0-2, when Christian Eriksen came on the scene and were to win 4-2 over Olympiakos.

Christian Eriksen was with to turn a 0-2 into a 4-2 victory for Tottenham in Tuesday's Champions League group stage match against Olympiakos, who secured the team advancement to the ottendedelsfinalen.

the Team came on the field in place of Eric Dier after 29 minutes, when Tottenham were behind with 0-2.

And indskiftningen of the dane made a difference, believes eriksen's team-mate Parts Alli, who started the match on the pitch and scored tottenham's first goal shortly before the break.

It made a difference. We were about to lose, when he came in, and the coach (José Mourinho, ed.) took a decision to send a more offensive player on the field.

- It could have been anyone of us who were out after the first 20 minutes, but fortunately worked indskiftningen, says Share Alli to the british media BT Sport.

Mourinho had chosen to start with Eriksen on the bench, but the heat of development meant that the dane was quickly asked to keep themselves ready.

- It was for the team's sake, and we needed a different solution. We were down 0-2, and they (the Olympiakos players, red.) closed down, says Mourinho to BT Sport.

- I'd need a second man, who together with Parts Alli could get into the spaces. It was something I did for the team and not the individual players, the coach says.

Christian Eriksen put up for tottenham's last goal, when he sent a free kick into the box for Harry Kane, with his second scoring headede the ball into the end result.
