An emotional Mauricio Pochettino called his Tottenham Hotspur players "super-heroes" after a Lucas Moura hat-trick inspired a spectacular comeback win to clinch a place in next month's Champions League final against Liverpool.

Spurs, who trailed 1-0 from the first leg, found themselves with a second-half mountain to climb after a Hakim Ziyech strike and a and Matthijs de Ligt header had given the Dutch club a 2-0 lead on Wednesday night in Amsterdam.

Moura levelled the tie on the night with two goals in four minutes but the English side still faced elimination unless they could find a winner.

With the clock running out, Moura popped up with the winning goal with virtually the last kick of the game to book Spurs' place in the Madrid final on June 1.
