Tottenham Hotspur put in one of the best performances in their recent history in the second half against Ajax last night, securing their spot in the Champions League final.
Spurs had only ever reached the quarter-finals once in their history, before they broke new ground by qualifying for the semis, and now all the way to the final.
Pochettino and his players will be hoping they can go one better and lift the trophy when they meet Liverpool in the final on June 1st.
Not many football fans would have honestly thought Spurs were going to progress after the first half in Amsterdam.
Spurs were sloppy defensively and gave away two goals on the night, making it 3-0 on aggregate, and leaving little hope of qualification.
However, a second-half hat-trick from Lucas Moura, including a 96th-minute winner, sent Spurs into dreamland.
Looking at the stats from the game, it isn’t hard to see why Spurs came through as winners, although it is tricky to pick out which was the home side (stats by BBC Sport).
