Tottenham keeper Heurelho Gomes claims collective success is more important to him than individual acclaim.[LNB] The Brazilian shot-stopper has come a long way during his two years at White Hart Lane, having silenced his critics to become an assured Premier League performer.[LNB]A shaky start to his career with Spurs suggested he may not be cut out for life in England, but he has overcome that wobble to showcase his undoubted class.[LNB]Gomes put in another star showing away at Fulham on Saturday, helping Tottenham to a 2-1 victory over their capital rivals.[LNB]The 29-year-old is pleased to see his achievements being acknowledged, but insists putting points on the board will always be his number one priority.[LNB]"I just want to be ready to help my team," Gomes told the club's official website.[LNB]"I need to concentrate and that was the situation again (on Saturday). And that's the case all the time. All that matters is the team.[LNB]"It's not easy to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage. It's the first time I've won here and I thought we deserved to win.[LNB]"They created some chances as well but we defended well and it was a massive win for us."
