The photo no Spurs fan will have expected to see in Champions League victory

Tottenham Hotspur are in the Champions League final.

Spurs came from 3-0 down on aggregate to beat Ajax on away goals in the second leg of their semi-final, with Lucas Moura scoring a brilliant second-half hat-trick. His third, of course, came in the 96th minute.

The final whistle brought an outpouring of emotion from both the club’s players and their staff.

Indeed, the comeback came about after a number of genuinely heroic performances; Lucas, obviously, was sensational, while Moussa Sissoko expertly marshalled the midfield and both Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld were dominant in defence.

The performance of Sissoko was yet another to add to a catalogue of exceptional displays.

And, after the game, Harry Kane, watching on from the stands due to his ankle injury, made a beeline for the Frenchman.

It is quite a sight to behold, Kane, so often the hero for Spurs, in the arms of their latest midfield great.

Sissoko endured a hellish start to his Spurs career but he has turned it all around under Mauricio Pochettino.

He will be one of the first names on the team-sheet ahead of the final in Madrid and could be key to beating Liverpool’s incessant press.

No Spurs fan in the world would have expected to say that 18 months ago.

What a resurrection.
