Spurs make final in dramatic fashion!
Tottenham secured a thrilling 3-2 (AGG: 3-3) win over Ajax at the Johan Cruyff Arena this morning to progress to the final of the UEFA Champions League.
Having gone down 2-0 in the first half, courtesy of goals from Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt (5′) and Hakim Ziyech (35′), it looked certain that Tottenham’s run in the competition was about to come to an end.
But Spurs were completely transformed in the second half as the impressive Lucas Moura went on to bag a hat-trick, including one in the sixth minute of stoppage time, to secure his side’s progression in extraordinary fashion.
“I think (the players) are super heroes now. To get the club to the final of the Champions League I think is very close to a miracle. No one believed in us from the start of the season,” said Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
“Without Harry Kane many people were talking about Sonny (Son Heung-min) but today it was Lucas Moura who scored three goals and you know if you don’t respect all the players, you cannot only have 11 players,” Pochettino said.
“You can have some players who can win some games but to be in the Champions League final you need 24 or 25 and the relationship must always be honest with everyone.
“In moments when you need them, they need to give their best.”
