Young Boys striker Henri Bienvenu insists his team-mates bullied Tottenham in their 3-2 UEFA Champions League play-off victory on Tuesday night.
Spurs fancied their chances of securing a positive result, but found themselves 3-0 down inside half an hour with the Cameroon hit-man scoring the Swiss outfit's second.
Bienvenu relished the physical battle with Spurs' back-line and feels they could have finished the contest off completely had they capitalised on their blistering first-half display.
The 22-year-old thinks Spurs' second goal put the tie firmly back in the balance, although he does not believe that Young Boys will travel to White Hart Lane with the sole intention of sitting back and defending.
"We had a great game against Spurs but unfortunately we lacked the experience of a big European team. We could have clinched the result after our third goal, but the occasion took over," he told skysports.com.
"Spurs have a great defence. My country mate Bassong is as strong as an ox, but I think I bullied them a bit with my pace and power. I enjoyed the battle with the centre-backs, but we still have another 90 minutes to play.
"The second goal for them was a killer but we can score there. We won in Fenerbahce, so anything is possible. We know they will attack against us next week. The manager will know his tactics.
"I'm happy to be compared to Seydou Doumbia. He's been sensational in the past two years here, but I want to make my own name as well!"
