10 Amazing Performances Which Give Champions League Hope To Tottenham Fans
Steven Gerrard holds the UEFA Champions League trophy aloft after his team produces a stunning comeback from three goals down to beat AC Milan on penalties in the Final on May 25 2005

Trailing by three goals at halftime and seemingly without hope of winning the greatest club trophy in the world, Liverpool rose from the ashes in Istanbul in the second half of the 2005 UEFA Champions League final to force extra time and claim a remarkable victory on penalties over AC Milan.

Last month, Tottenham produced an enthralling comeback of their own, albeit against lesser opposition on a smaller stage, to qualify to compete in the qualifying group of the Champions League for the first time in their illustrious history.

It was Peter Crouch's hat-trick and a real grass pitch which enabled Harry Redknapp's team to overcome minnows Young Boys Bern 6-3 on aggregate.

But, despite this impressive turnaround and all of the hard work which the coaching staff and players put into last season to edge out wealthier rivals Manchester City to the potentially lucrative fourth position in the Premier League, Tottenham will have to find another gear to escape from Group A.

FC Twente, Werder Bremen and holders Internazionale stand in their way of another historic achievement, with the first match on Tuesday seeing the team travel to Germany to take on veteran coach Thomas Schaaf's experienced Champions League campaigners.

With key players Michael Dawson, Heurelho Gomes, Jermain Defoe, and Luka Modric all sustaining injuries recently, it is a baptism of fire for a team which has failed to beat either West Bromwich Albion or Wigan Athletic in the last two rounds of the Premier League.

Nevertheless, I look at 10 incredible matches in this chronolgical slideshow which prove that absolutely anything can happen in the beautiful game of football, and give Spurs fans hope that their ultimate dream of watching their beloved team lift the Champions League trophy at Wembley on May 28, 2011 is not so far-fetched after all.
