Udeze blasts Ajax for throwing away Champions League dream

Udeze blasts Ajax for throwing away Champions League dream

Former Super Eagles defender Ifeanyi Udeze has blasted Ajax players for throwing away a 3-0 lead to Tottenham in their Champions League semi-final on Wednesday night.

Spurs produced a European miracle as Lucas Moura’s dramatic second-half hat-trick set up a stunning 3-2 win over Ajax – and an all-English final with Liverpool.


The Premier League club were dead and buried at half-time in the second leg at the Johan Cryuff ArenA as they trailed the Amsterdam team 2-0 on the night and 3-0 on aggregate after goals from Matthijs De Ligt and Hakim Ziyech.

 

However, a miraculous comeback, spearheaded by Moura, was completed deep into added time when the Brazilian slotted home a loose ball to seal an away goals success and spark amazing scenes in Amsterdam.

 

The former PAOK captain said he was shocked that the Dutch side somehow failed to book a final showdown with Liverpool.

 

He said: “I wasn’t really supporting Ajax, but I never expected them to throw away the 3-0 lead, learning from the Barcelona scenario,” Udeze said.
