Tottenham Hotspur beat the Champions League holders Real Madrid 3-1 at Wembley on Wednesday night to qualify for the knockout stages of the competitions, and Spurs fans were understandably ecstatic.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men came into the clash against the La Liga giants on the back of a 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu a fortnight ago, and they perhaps couldn’t have dreamt that they would perform so well on their own patch.
The north London outfit dominated the match from start to finish and a brace from Dele Alli – who was making his first appearance in the Champions League this season following suspension – was added to by a goal from Christian Eriksen to wrap up a relatively comfortable victory.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the historic win via social media, and while one simply said “give us the trophy now”, another said “never thought I’d see this”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
