Tottenham's Champions League dream was ended by a second-half sucker-punch from Italian champions Juventus.

Higuain scored a neat goal in the 64th minute and then assisted the victor to his Argentine compatriot Paulo Dybala by holding off three Spurs players before playing it to Dybala who scored his first Champions League goal after a surprising 330 days UCL goal drought.

Harry Kane hit the post with a late header and Andrea Barzagli hacked the ball off the line as the hosts tried to force extra-time, with Juventus holding on to progress. I think we played very well - better than them.

"We waited for the right time, showed patience and won the game".

Barely three minutes later Juve had turned the tie on its head, Dybala - who missed the first leg through injury - racing through on to Higuain's pass and dispatching his shot across the exposed Hugo Lloris into the net.

"The reality is we conceded three chances and they scored twice", said the Argentinean. We can call it different things: lack of experience, lack of concentration, but when you watch the game again, Tottenham for more than 70 minutes were the better team and we created a lot.

It leaves the FA Cup as Spurs's only hope of silverware this season but Pochettino insisted he was proud of how his players performed in the tie. And tomorrow we go to give last "ciao" together with our team-mates. You can win or lose.

Normal service resumed in the second-half with Tottenham still the first to every second ball. We did suffer a lot but that's normal in football. We started the second half in a bit of a shaky way, but we were facing a really impressive team.

"I'd say I'm probably match fit for any other team in the league, but still not quite where I need to be and where I'd like to be for this team". Experience is important. Tonight we use our skill for the win.

Before the match, a minute of silence was observed by players and fans in memory of Italy worldwide Davide Astori, who died unexpectedly last Sunday. We've grown year by year and of course we have got to improve still - we are not blind - but we know we've got the quality to improve.

After a 2-2 draw in Turin, Spurs were marginal favourites going into the contest at Wembley and looked to be heading into the quarter-finals when Heung-min Son put them ahead just before the break.

It was agonizing for Tottenham, which beat Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in the group stage.
