Tottenham did the impossible by coming back from 3-0 down to overcome Ajax to reach the Champions League final.
Spurs managed to achieve the feat without their talisman Harry Kane, who had to watch from the sidelines as he is nursing an ankle injury.
It looked like it wasn’t going to be Tottenham’s day as the game approached its end but Lucas Moura popped up with the winner (leveler on aggregate), in the last minute of stoppage time thus bagging his hattrick. At half-time, many fans had resorted to Betting in order to try and maximise the odds of a famous Spurs comeback.
There were wild celebrations after the final whistle with the players and the manager rushing on to the pitch. Kane was among the first ones to sprint on to the pitch with his ankle injury apparently in no sight.
After the game, BT Sport tweeted out a video of the England captain sprinting on to the pitch, and asked him how his ankle is.
The Spurs striker reacted sheepishly to the question.

Earlier, the 25-year-old told BT Sport that he is hopeful of being fit for the final.
"I've got to start training even harder and prove myself!"
"Hopefully I'll be back, and hopefully I'll have a starting place."

Spurs Web Opinion
Tottenham might have managed to progress without Kane against Manchester City and Ajax but there is no doubt that Tottenham are a much better team with him in the side.
The Spurs No.10 will surely want to be involved in what will be the biggest match of his career, and Pochettino thus might have to start with Son on the bench for the final.
