The England right-back knows Spurs have a busy fixture list as they are in the last 32 of the Europa League but wants a trophy as well as UEFA Champions League qualification.

"With the squad we have, we can do both. We are quite capable of it," Walker told The Sun.

"We need to go out and attack every game. Hopefully that will put us in a good position at the end of the season."

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas won the Europa League two seasons ago with Porto and has shown his commitment to trying to win the competition with a series of strong team selections.

And Walker is in no doubt as to the importance of the tournament as he looks to win silverware.

The 22-year-old added: "It's massive for me. I want to win stuff at Tottenham and this tournament is a great opportunity to get a medal.

"We have been good throughout the group stages. Things haven't always gone our way but we've hung in there and got the results we needed."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
