As the dust settles, one Tottenham player made history against Manchester City

Tottenham Hotspur advanced through to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time after coming through a frantic second leg against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Five goals in the opening 21 minutes left the watching world breathless, as both teams gave everything to meet Ajax, who had booked their semi-final place the night before.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side may have lost the action-packed game, but they did enough over the two legs and will now prepare for the exact same fixture on Saturday.

After the madness of Wednesday’s game, most will still be unaware that one Tottenham player actually made a little bit of history.

 

Heung-min Son’s brace took his tally to 12 in the competition, meaning he is now the competition’s highest Asian goalscorer (Squawka).

Europe’s most prestigious club competition has not had much representation from players from Asia since its inception, but a record is a record and Son will hope to add to his tally for years to come.

He is undeniably good enough to be featuring in the competition every single year, so Spurs need to ensure they qualify for next season’s competition before another Champions League club comes calling for the South Korean.
