Son: “I'm very proud of this team.”

Tottenham shattered Man City’s Champions League dream.

Son Heung-min is looking forward to his first Champions League semi-final clash of his career, and he says Tottenham are not finished after their quarter-final triumph over Manchester City.

Despite losing 4-3 at the Etihad Stadium in the second leg of Europe’s elite competition, Mauricio Pochettino’s side reached the semi-finals with a 4-4 aggregate result, courtesy of the away-goals rule.

And when reflecting on the result on Wednesday night, the Spurs attacker – who scored twice in three minutes – told "It means a lot. Also for me it's the first time playing in the quarter-finals.

"Now it's the first time I'll play in the semi-finals of the Champions League. It feels amazing.

"I'm very proud of this team and to be part of this time. I'm just grateful and just unbelievable. We're not finished. We just keep going until the end and we will see."

The South Korean added: "I have never seen something like this, it was a very tough game, a very crazy game. But we are very proud of our team-mates. It was madness.

"Sometimes you are annoyed with VAR but today it is 'thank you and good decision'. We fought together for 90 minutes. We showed unbelievable character and fight."

Son won't be able to play in the first leg against Dutch giants Ajax in the semi-final after picking up a suspension.

Having been booked twice in this season's competition previously, the yellow card received by the South Korean today took his tally to three for the tournament, triggering a one-game ban.
