If you’re a Tottenham fan in this moment, you must be on top of the world. What a time to be alive! Through to the semi-finals of the Champions League against the odds, Spurs really did their fans and themselves proud, as they overcame favorites Manchester City over two legs of their quarter-final.

City were still favorites to progress despite their 1-0 first-leg loss away at Tottenham. Heung-min Son scored the winner that night. Cut to a week later, these two sides produced a Champions League classic as City won 4-3 on the night, but Tottenham progressed on the away goals rule after a 4-4 aggregate scoreline.

The game was full of drama, emotions and controversy, which saw the first half end 3-2 in favor of City, with all goals coming within the first quarter of the game. Son bagged two in the absence of the injured Kane, while Sterling (2) and Bernardo Silva got the City goals. Sergio Aguero lashed City into a 4-2 lead in the second half, which would’ve been enough to see them through, but Llorente’s goal meant City had to score another.

VAR played a major role in the game, disallowing a stoppage-time winner for City for offside and allowing Llorente’s goal to stand after a suspicion of handball. But that didn’t get in the way of celebrations for Spurs and their fans. At the full time whistle, Spurs fans went into delirium. Spurs manager Pochettino was seen passionately celebrating with his coaching staff and later on with his players. Spurs ecstatic, City shattered. Football is cruel indeed.

It wasn’t just fans from the stadium that went berserk, fans all around the world watching the game on TV coverage were ecstatic at the final whistle. Social media flooded with videos of fans celebrating the triumph in various locations such as Dublin, New York, L.A, Philadelphia to name a few.

Spurs fans watching the game from bars, pubs, screenings and their households were drowned in ecstasy. Singing, dancing, screaming: the celebrations knew no bounds. It really is a joy to watch, for Spurs fans at least. And why wouldn’t it be?

Tottenham look the real deal and are not to be trifled with or underestimated. How good are Spurs, given that they brought in no one in the summer and are now through to their first ever UEFA Champions League semi-final?
