Lazio coach Delio Rossi praised his players after they battled back to win 3-1 at Dinamo Bucharest and book their place in the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign.

The Biancoceleste recorded a 4-2 aggregate triumph.

"I knew I had a fantastic team," admitted Rossi. "We´ve had several injuries and then we conceded a goal in the first half, but my players have character."
