Is your heart still racing?

Cause our hearts are still racing, and we’re neutrals, so we can only imagine what it feels like to be one of the heroes of Tottenham Hotspur’s insane advancement past Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League.

Spurs fell 4-3 on the day but rode the three away goals and a VAR overturning of a stoppage time “winner” for Manchester City into the semis, 4-4 on aggregate.

“I have never seen something like this, It was tough game, very crazy game but we are very proud of our team-mates,” Son said. “It was madness. Sometimes you are annoyed with VAR but today it is thank you. We fought together for 90 minutes. We showed unbelievable character and fight.”

Christian Eriksen was almost as lost for words. From the BBC:

“I must be one of the luckiest guys on the planet tonight. I thought it was all over but It was a fun game. It was a rollercoaster, we gave them a lot but also got a lot it was a weird game.”

Eriksen also earns a date with his former club, Ajax.

“It will be a fairytale to play them and fun to be back in the Arena again.”

The injured Harry Kane was relegated to sending celebratory videos on his phone. It’s hard to capture the magic, Harry. Don’t blame yourself.
