Southampton forward Charlie Austin and Graham Roberts praise Tottenham Hotspur striker Fernando Llorente.

Lucas Moura stole the show for Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, as the Brazil international scored a stunning hat-trick against Ajax to guide the Premier League club to the final of the Champions League this season.

The 26-year-old winger scored his first goal in the 55th minute and made it 2-2 just four minutes later.

Then in the sixth minute of injury time, the former Paris Saint-Germain man found the net with a precise shot to ascertain Spurs’ progress to the final of Europe’s premier club competition on away goals’ rule.

It was not just Moura, though, who gave one of the performances of their lives, and among those who have probably not got quite the attention they deserve is Fernando Llorente.

The 34-year-old Spanish striker came on as a half-time substitute, and he was a nuisance for the Ajax defence throughout the second half, as his towering presence gave Spurs something to aim at.

Tottenham legend Graham Roberts has praised Llorente on Twitter, and so has Southampton forward Charlie Austin.
