Tottenham Hotspur may not have won the Champions League Final in Madrid last year, but they will certainly go down in the history of the competition.
Spurs fans will always remember where they were when they witnessed the miracle in Amsterdam as Lucas Moura single-handedly hauled the side into the final.
Tottenham had lost the first leg at home 1-0 after a dominant Ajax display, before going 2-0 down at half-time against the young team from the Netherlands in the second leg.
Lucas Moura’s first goal seemed to be nothing more than a strike to save Spurs’ blushes, but when he netted a second soon after, it was game on.
Tottenham knocked and knocked on the door of what would have been a winner on aggregate, but when Vertonghen’s golden chance didn’t find the net, it looked as if it wouldn’t be their day.
Then, in the 96th-minute, up stepped Moura to complete his hat-trick in the dying seconds to send Spurs to Madrid. Chaos ensued.
The Brazilian has now finally revealed what it was like in the dressing room afterwards (BT Sport): “In the changing room, we were partying, dancing, water spraying in the air.
“Loads of music. It was amazing, an amazing changing room. The best I have felt. It was incredible. It’s impossible not to cry after this game. When the referee finished the game, I was down on the grass. I couldn’t believe it. I was just praying and saying thank you to God.
“After the third goal, after the game, I could only think about my family. My wife, my family from Brazil. When I called my wife, she was crying so much.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Hands down my favourite moment in Tottenham’s history since I first starting watching. I only wish that we could have capped it off with a trophy, but every Tottenham supporter everywhere was celebrating just as hard as Moura and the boys that night.
