Tottenham players collapsed to the turf, some flat on their backs, forlorn and heartbroken. From the brink of Champions League elimination, Manchester City was celebrating its passage to the semifinals.City manager Pep Guardiola was leaping on the touchline, The stadium soon became hushed until the big screen flashed: “No goal. VAR. Offside.” Guardiola threw his head in his hands, but there was nothing to argue about.
SPURS MAKES HISTORY
A team that had no new signing this season has beaten one of the richest clubs in the world thus Tottenham reached to its first European Cup semifinal in 57 years and will play Ajax. Tottenham advanced thanks to Fernando Llorente’s hip, which nudged the ball into the net in the 73rd minute for a goal that survived a VAR review for possible handball. It was the last goal of a night that will be long remembered by fans, across the world as a Uefa Champions league classic night.
THE GOALS , SHORT AND PRECISE
That is why we love football , 5 goals in 21 minutes in a champions league quarter final match -Sterling put City ahead in just the fourth minute. Son then netted twice to put City in a position where it had to score three more goals to advance. City did just that to take a 4-2 lead, only for Llorente’s hip to hand over the advantage back to Spurs and VAR had to knock the life out of the City Celebration and put the stadium into dead silence when he ruled correctly that Sterlings “third goal” in added time had Aguero with the assist come from an offiside position.
