Tottenham Hotspur completed another Champions League miracle on Wednesday, stunning Ajax with three goals in the second half of their match to reach the final.
The comeback finished in dramatic fashion, with Lucas Moura netting his third goal in the final seconds of the match in a last-ditch offensive attack by Tottenham. When the ball got by the goalkeeper, Spurs players celebrated while Ajax defenders fell to the ground in disbelief.
