Wanyama stars as Tottenham qualify for UCL semis

Victor Wanyama played for ninety minutes as Tottenham qualified for the Champions League semi-finals in style, as they beat Manchester City on away goals in a seven-goal thriller on Wednesday night.

City took the lead after just four minutes, thanks to an excellent strike from Raheem Sterling. The English forward picked up the ball on the edge of the box, and curled it into the bottom far corner to level the tie early on.

Spurs were level just three minutes later, as Son Heung-min hit a low shot that went through Ederson. Son got his second of the night after another three minutes, as he curled the ball into the top corner to get his third goal against City within a week.

Manchester City pulled one back moments later, as Bernardo Silva broke through and slotted home for the Citizens. Sterling drew his side level on aggregate soon after, as he swept home a wonderful low cross from Kevin De Bruyne to take the lead on the night.

Sergio Aguero turned it around for City in the second half, thumping home De Bruyne’s clever pass. Fernando Llorente gave Spurs the advantage once again in the 73rd minute, and despite a VAR check, the goal was given.

City thought they had won it right at the end, but Sterling’s last gasp goal was disallowed for offside after another VAR check. However it was Spurs who prevailed in the seven-goal thriller, as they progressed to the Champions League semi-finals.
