Mousa Dembele's 89th-minute strike in Lyon on Thursday night set up a mouth-watering last-16 clash with the Italian giants, against whom Tottenham locked horns in two fantastic games two seasons ago.
Gareth Bale grabbed Europe's attention with two breathtaking displays in the Champions League Group A ties, scoring a hat-trick in the San Siro as Spurs fell to a valiant 4-3 defeat before embarrassing Maicon at White Hart Lane as the home side won 3-1.
It is fair to say that the Inter team Spurs faced two seasons ago is much stronger than their current XI.
Back then Samuel Eto'o, Wesley Sneijder and Lucio guided the club to second in Serie A. Now they sit fifth in the league, their captain Javier Zanetti turns 40 this summer and their leading marksman is 33-year-old Diego Milito, who has found the net just nine times in the league this term.
"We have players to progress in this competition," Lloris said.
"Inter Milan is a great team with a great history in European competition. It will be a difficult game but we have the ambition to continue and win this trophy.
"Lyon are a great team, that was a big game for us and we got through so I think we can also do it against Inter."
