LUCAS MOURA says it is impossible to explain his feelings after his stunning hat-trick broke Ajax hearts and sent Tottenham through to the Champions League final.

Moura's stoppage time strike sealed an amazing 3-2 victory in Amsterdam to earn Spurs the right to face Liverpool in Madrid on June 1.

Ajax players were left slumped on the pitch devastated at seeing their dreams blown apart by the thrilling comeback from Maurcio Pochettino's side.

And 26-year-old Tottenham star Moura says the "greatest moment" of his career had left him struggling to come to terms with what had happened.

The Brazilian said: "It's impossible to explain what I am feeling at this moment.

"I am very happy, very proud of my team-mates. We also believed it was possible and gave everything on the pitch. I think we deserved this moment, we are a family.

"It's impossible to explain, I am so happy. It's a big gift from God and I'd like to share it with my team-mates and the fans.

"Everyone worked hard. It's difficult to play here against Ajax but I always believed in my team-mates and their qualities, even without key players. I am really proud.

"Football is amazing, it gives moments like this that we cannot imagine. We need to enjoy it.

"It's the best moment in my career and I only need to say thank you to my team-mates because what I am living here at Tottenham is unbelievable."

The dramatic late victory left boss Pochettino in tears at the final whistle as the emotions of what had happened took hold.

The Spurs side partied hard in the dressing room at the end of the game – while former boss Glenn Hoddle admitted he was glad to be alive to witness the moment after his brush with death last year.
