Ajax's European adventure ends in agony

Ajax have been a joy to watch throughout this incredible European campaign, which started all the way back on 25 July in the second qualifying round against Austrian side Sturm Graz.

They have won a legion of new fans during their march through the rounds, which has included impressive wins over holders Real Madrid and Juventus.

Yet the four-time champions of Europe will need some time to recover after being denied a first appearance in the final since 1996 in the dying moments.

Boasting a three-goal aggregate advantage at half-time, their fans were in party mood before Tottenham's amazing comeback.

De Ligt's early header from a corner after Hugo Lloris had denied Tadic was followed by Ziyech's clever finish and left Spurs with a mountain to climb.

Little did they know what was to come as the visitors, inspired by the exceptional Moura, produced an epic turnaround.
