Spurs Delight as they Eliminate Ajax
Tottenham Hotspur were in pure heaven last night as they overcame a 1-0 deficit to beat Ajax on away goals.
Trailing from the 1st leg and conceding two early goals the Spurs support must have thought that was the end of their Champions League dream.
But Spurs rallied, maybe after seeing Liverpool overturn their deficit against Barcelona the night before and in the second half were really quite inspirational.
A fired up spurs, led by a hat trick from Lucas Moura inspired the visitors and when the final whistle went 7 minutes into injury time the away side were simply joyous.
After the game Mauricio Pochettino said;
“It’s difficult with words to describe my feelings and my emotions,”
“I think it’s one of the most important nights in my life. How the game finished, everything that happened, the first half, how we planned to play, how the plan was down after three minutes when we conceded the goal, and I think everything was amazing.
“The most important thing I want to say is to congratulate my players. They own the football, they delivered a great job.
“For me, they are heroes. I’ve told you the last six months, “I think they are superheroes 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 beginning of the season. We are so close to the top four and have the opportunity in Madrid to play the final against Liverpool.
“It is an amazing season in our new home. This chapter that we’re going to close now, until June 1, it can be amazing to close the chapter playing a final. In case we won it should be an amazing book.”(Quoted from ITV.com)
