“The miracle of Amsterdam”- A story in pictures

Today marks exactly one year since Tottenham Hotspur overcame all odds against Ajax Amsterdam to book their place in the UEFA Champions League final.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, Tottenham made the journey to the Netherlands hoping to overturn the deficit. What followed was a match for the ages. We take a look at the major events that took place that night through pictures.

The Spurs squad was without star striker Harry Kane. The starting XI had three former Ajax players in their midst.
