Heurelho Gomes has claimed that Ronaldo’s shot moved in the air after the Spurs keeper fumbled the ball into the net to give Real Madrid a 1-0 win.

Gomes accepts that it was his mistake and wants to put it behind him and help Tottenham to qualify for the Champions League again.

“The ball moved a little bit but it was a mistake and I accept it,” Gomes said.

“This was not my first mistake and I know it will not be the last one in my career, but I need to show character like I did before.

“I know I was so important for the club and I need to move on because they need me. We have a lot of big games coming up and I need to recover quick.

“It was a difficult moment for me but I have to look forward because I know how important that is for the team.”

He added: “The dream is over but we will still keep going to make sure we get a place in next year’s competition.

“There are a lot of big games coming up and we need to look forward to those games. This season is not over yet.”
