Brazilian legends Rivaldo and Neymar have both sent messages to Tottenham Hotspur forward Lucas Moura on Instagram, after his starring role in the Champions League.

Moura stunned the footballing world on Wednesday evening, as he helped Tottenham make it to the Champions League final in dramatic circumstances.

The rapid forward hit a second half hat-trick for Mauricio Pochettino’s men as they made it past Ajax.

 

Tottenham were 3-0 down on aggregate with just 45 minutes of the tie left to play, but then Moura decided to take the game by the scruff of the neck.

The £25 million attacker (BBC Sport) raced through to score his first, then showed clever feet to net a second from close-range.

His third goal came in the 96th minute, as Spurs broke Ajax hearts, and pulled off one of the all time great Champions League comebacks.

And Moura’s Instagram post was inundated with messages from players past and present.
