"It was breathtaking" | Stephen Kelly hails Moura's second goal against Ajax


Share this article


Former Tottenham player Stephen Kelly has hailed Lucas Moura's second goal against Ajax in the Champions League as "breathtaking".

Moura bagged a hat-trick and  produced a man of the match performance after Spurs beat the Erevidise side last night in to book their place in the Champions League final.

Kelly vividly described Moura's second, which displayed a number of deft touches before squeezing it into the corner of the net. Kelly expressed his amazement at the close control and technique displayed by the Brazilian player.

"He reacted to the ball, got himself between three or four defenders, did a full 360 away from the goal within such a tight area between another three bodies," he said.

"It was an amazing strike, an amazing turn. The delicacy of his touches to keep him within a confined space, so no one could get near him."

The Dubliner who made his Premier League debut at Tottenham  says it was a sensational finish because of the close number of players within his proximity.

"To have that cool head with so many people around him, to finish it off - it was breathtaking,' Kelly described to OTB AM.

The forward bagged all three goals in the second-half and the Irish international admits he was impressed by Moura's cool finish in such pressurized circumstances.

"He kept the ball so tight to his body that he could have a real swing at it, and to get enough power on it to find the corner was brilliant."
