Mauricio Pochettino Couldn't Stop Crying Tears Of Joy After Incredible Comeback

Football, bloody hell. In the most dramatic of semi-finals, Mauricio Pochettino's side will now go up against Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday 1st June.

Spurs will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano stadium as underdogs but after a dramatic win over Ajax in the semi-final, and with the likes of Dele Alli and Son Heung Min in their side, anything is possible in Madrid.

Not to mention this fella below.

It was an incredible game from start to finish. Ajax opened the scoring when Matthis de Ligt powered a header past Lloris, then Ziyech made it two but Spurs never gave in and soon made it 2-2.

Then, in the final moments of the game, Brazilian forward Lucas Moura completed his hat-trick in stunning fashion.

It was a "where were you when Spurs did the impossible" moment.

Minutes later, the final whistle blew and manager Mauricio Pochettino broke down in tears, just like thousands of away supporters who travelled to the Johan Cruyff Arena.

He collapsed to his knees in unbridled joy.

What a moment. What a manager.

What a week of football, and it's only Wednesday!
