Lucas Moura has described his heroics in last season’s Champions League as the highlight of his footballing career in an interview with former Spur, Jamie O’Hara.
Trailing 1-0 from the first leg of the semi-final, Spurs made the worst possible start in Amsterdam when a header by Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt doubled the advantage for Erik ten Hag’s side.
Hakim Ziyech doubled Ajax’s lead on the night with a neat finish to put Pochettino’s side3-0 down going into half time.
The second half was all about the £25million signing from PSG (BBC) when he showed superb pace on for his first goal to latch onto Dele Alli’s heavy touch before showing incredible composure to slot it past Andre Onana.
The second was an equally impressive demonstration of close control in the area before curling the ball into the corner with his wrong foot and the third was the stuff of dreams as Spurs won on away goals to reach their first Champions League final.
Harry Kane was controversially selected in favour of the Brazilian for the final against Liverpool in Madrid.
? “By far the best day of my career.”
? “I didn’t know how to celebrate, or what to do!”
❤️ “It will be in my heart forever.”@LucasMoura7 looks back on THAT Champions League semi-final winner.
