Tottenham Hotspur are through to the knockout stages of the Champions League thanks to a clutch late goal by Lucas Moura. Spurs have fought back from a dreadful start to the group stage to nick a spot in the Round 16 thanks to a tiebreaker over Inter Milan. Here’s the goal that sealed it for Mauricio Pochettino’s side:

It was nothing special, but it was coming for the whole second half and it finally went in thanks to the Brazilian, Lucas. Harry Kane made up for a few missed chances by playing provider on the goal from the left flank. His low driven ball into the box was perfectly in the stride Lucas.

What a great comeback to seal a spot in the knockout rounds. Not many expected it to happen after the poor start to a very tough group, but now that they’ve done it, anything is possible.
