Lucas Moura deserves a statue

Lucas Moura “deserves a statue” after his hat-trick took Tottenham into an all-English Champions League final, says team-mate Christian Eriksen. Moura himself called it “the best moment of my career”.

Eriksen said: “It was a ridiculous game; we were really far down, we tried to fight back, we were just lucky.”

The Danish playmaker added: “We had to fight. We are relieved.

“Today it was non-tactical, more of a fight and heart performance, heart and Lucas Moura – he’s how we won the game.

“He deserves it, it has been a rollercoaster of a season, for him to get us in the final, I hope he gets a statue in England after this, we are blown away.
