Lucas Moura scored a dramatic last minute winner to send Tottenham Hotspurs into the Champions League final for the first time in its history after an astonishing comeback against Ajax in Amsterdam.
Spurs was behind 2-0 at the interval, 3-0 overall when Moura scored three times in the second half, including a last-gasp winner, to set up an all-English final against Liverpool in Madrid on the first of June.
Tottenham’s coach, Mauricio Pochettino, could not curtail his emotions as he wept openly.The overwhelmed coach paid tribute to his players by saying, “Thank you football.”
He told BT Sport: “My players are heroes. I’m so emotional now. It’s an amazing moment, it’s difficult to describe in words.
“When you work, when you feel the love, it’s not a stress. It’s a passion and we showed that passion.”
