Tottenham Hotspur fans will have enjoyed the celebrations last night, but all thoughts today will be about securing tickets to see their club in Madrid.
Spurs qualified for the Champions League final last night in style, as they came from 3-0 down on aggregate to book their place against Liverpool on June 1st.
Tottenham conceded two first-half goals to all but hand the win to Ajax, but whatever Mauricio Pochettino told the boys at half time certainly did the trick.
Lucas Moura was given three chances in the second 45 and smashed home all three to send Spurs home as 3-2 winners on the night.
Despite the aggregate score being 3-3, Tottenham’s three away goals trumped the one of Ajax, sending the Lilywhites through to the next and final round.
Harry Kane took to the pitch after the final whistle and revealed that he is aiming to be fit and ready to start in 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.”

Some fans reacted on Twitter to Kane suggesting his ankle may be ready for action:
Get yourself on some heavy Ibuprofen, Harry. We’re Tottenham Hotspur & we’re going to Madrid!!! ????
