TOTTENHAM winger Lucas Moura dedicated his Carabao Cup winner against West Ham to his wife ahead of their five-year anniversary.
The 29-year-old forward gave Spurs a 34th-minute lead in North London as Antonio Conte’s men held the draw beat their opponents 2-1.
Spurs have now reached the semi-finals of the second leg in the League Cup after they finished as runners-up last season.
And Tottenham drew another London team after their win over the Hammers – with the club to face Chelsea in two matches.
The semi-final first leg will take place on January 3, the second leg will take place next week.
Brazilian striker Lucas, who has now scored four goals this term, spoke of his joy as Spurs qualify for the next round.
And he rushed to his partner Larissa Saad in his post-match interview with the couple to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary on Thursday,
Moura, who led Spurs just two minutes after Jarrow Bowen canceled out Steven Bergwijn’s opening goal, said: “Winning this derby means a lot.
“It’s a competition we can win. We are very strong at the moment and our desire is to win this trophy.
“Very, very good. This goal means a lot to me and to my wife.
“Tomorrow we complete five years. We are very happy and this is for her.”
Lucas and Larissa officially started dating in 2015, but they’ve known each other much longer than that.
The pair were best friends for four years before getting to know each other after being arranged by a mutual friend named Thiago Nicacio, who worked as a lawyer in Paris for Lucas.
In November 2018, the happy couple welcomed the birth of their son Miguel and their second child, Pedro, born in September 2019.
