| Ajax manager Erik ten Hag praised his young lions after the Dutch club moved in
Donny van de Beek & 15 well-taken goal put Ajax firmly on the chair against a disappointing Spurs side facing a difficult task of turning the semi-final into the second leg of the second week in Amsterdam.
& # 39; A fantastic achievement. We fought like lions, & Ten 39 said. & # 39; We are halfway and in good shape. The willpower was very nice to see. "
Had David Neres not denied the post at Ajax & # 39; s position, it would seem impregnable, but he doesn't know the job, think it is an excellent result for us We have won the game We are satisfied We have a very good starting point, but we are still but halfway through, & he told reporters.
& # 39; We can play football in different styles. We can defend very well. We have a team that works really well together; they can fight together very well.

The 22-year-old Van de Beek said he still expected that he would be tough fighting next week at the Johan Cruyff stadium
& # 39; The first 30 minutes were good, but then we found it difficult. They changed the situation and we had trouble dealing with it, & he said. & # 39; The second half was really a fight.
& # 39; It will be a tough game next week in the Arena, but with our own supporters behind it, it will certainly be a huge boost to reach the final.
& # 39; We must develop a good tactical plan so that we can play as we did in the first 30 minutes of tonight. & # 39; Donny van de Beek scored the only goal of the match in the 15th minute in North London. dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/04/30/23/12929208-0-image-a-90_1556664581649.jpg "height =" 411 "width =" 634 "alt =" Donny van de Beek scored the only goal of the game in the 15th minute in North London " the game in the 15th minute in North London
