Emmanuel Adebayor kept Tottenham's Europa League dreams alive with a quick-succession brace that sparked a wild comeback and a 3-1 (3-2 aggregate) victory over Dnipro.

With Tottenham down 2-1 on aggregate and needing two goals at White Hart Lane to advance, Adebayor connected on a Christian Eriksen cross to get things level in the 65th minute, albeit, still requiring one more goal due to Dnipro's away goal. 


Four minutes later, Zeki Fryers set Adebayor free and the Togo international cleanly finished to put the tie back in the hosts favour. 


Lost amid Adebayor's heroics, Eriksen's fine free kick put things in motion in the 55th minute. 




"And then they said I wouldn't score tonight..."
