Ajax Lost To Tottenham in Semifinal – Amsterdam Wails

Last night’s European Championship Semi-finals was a damn nail-biter for Ajax Amsterdam.


Ajax! Ajax! Ajax! eff yeah Ajax!

And we, Amsterdam Travelcafe, had our own shirt to match that enthusiasm!

Ajax scored 2 right away in the first half. (First one was in the first 5 minutes!) But right when the morale is high and spirits are red (see what I did there?)… Tottenham came out swinging with two scores in 4 minutes. 5 substitutions and 3 yellow cards later, 90-minutes were up and no one was the wiser.

By minute 97 it was still even between the two and looking hopeful… Tireless attempts from both sides are blocked ruthlessly.

Moment of truth came with a crushing blow. Lucas Moura (Tottenham Hotspur)’s left footed shot came swinging from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner. SCORE!

Sadly, Ajax lost to Tottenham, and is not making into the finals this year. Our fingers are crossed for 2020.
