You can say that Ajax died on the beach when yesterday Lucas Moura scored in the final seconds of the meeting the goal that put Tottenham in the final of the Champions League.
After the match, Ajax coach Erik Ten Hag spoke at a difficult time managing for the Dutch club.
"I told my players it was not over yet, I could see the attitude of the Tottenham players and it was seen that they still believed. We were so close and we deserved the qualification, but that last second," lamented Ten Hag.
"If Ziyech's (2-2 on the scoreboard) was not on the post, it would have been Tottenham's elimination, it would have ended the game, but it's no time to blame anyone. We did an incredible season in the Champions League and we grew a lot as a team, but it is difficult to process, "says the coach who was close to taking Ajax to the new European final, something that has not happened for 23 years.
