Locas Moura Hat-Trick Qualifies Tottenham To Finals, Dumps Ajax Out Of Champions League


This is unbelievable. Can someone please explain to me what is happening? Two footballing miracles in two nights. I think Locas Moura and Divok Origi should get a statue in Tottenham and Liverpool respectively. 

Tottenham have just staged another remarkable comeback to beat Ajax in their home and clinch a place in the Champions League finals. Locas Moura hat-trick ensured that Tottenham secured a place with Liverpool in the European highest cup "Champions League" and thus made it an all English club affair. 

To be honest,  I'm not sure what we've all just witnessed. Still the Spurs players are out in the middle of the park. Those Spurs fans are all ringing in sick for the next few days. They might as well go straight to Madrid for the final clash.. Lol. 

The match ended Ajax 2-3 Tottenham and 3-3 on aggregate which ensured that Tottenham qualified on away goal rule. Even Tottenham coach, Mauricio Pochettino is crying like a baby and he was on his knees when his team scored an injury time goal. It gets you emotional watching him and seeing how much it means to him.

Spurs has however become the 40th team to play in the European Cup final. Needless to mentioned it but they will of course play Liverpool and that is another mountain to climb. 

According to former Tottenham manager Glenn Hoddle on BT Sport: 

"Incredible, we've seen two footballing miracles in two nights and Tottenham only had 45 minutes to score three goals, incredible."

It was all going well for Ajax in the first half as de Ligt and Ziyech was on target to take the tally against Tottenham to 2-0 but Locas Moura quickly equalized the match in two quick succession in 55' and 59' and later broke the heart of Ajax as he completed his hat-trick in the injury time 90'+6 to take Tottenham to Champions League finals in Madrid. 

Spurs looked dead and buried when Ziyech made it 3-0 on aggregate before half-time but they somehow pulled themselves together to reach a first Champions League final.

A very big congrats to Spurs and their resilient attitude.
