Lucas Moura dedicates Tottenham goal to gorgeous wife on anniversary

Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura dedicated his winning goal against West Ham United on Wednesday night to his stunning wife ahead of their five-year anniversary.

The Brazilian netted Tottenham's second on the night as Antonio Conte's side held on for a 2-1 victory to advance to the semi final of the Carabao Cup.

Steven Bergwijn had initially put Spurs ahead before Jarrod Bowen equalised for the Hammers.

The north Londoners face Chelsea in the next round, the first-leg of which will take place on January 3 with the second leg a week later.

Moura, who bagged his fourth goal of the season last night, gushed over partner Larissa Saad in his post-match interview with the pair set to celebrate their wedding anniversary today.

"This derby win means a lot," the Brazilian said.

"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 goals means a lot for me, and for my wife.

"Tomorrow we complete five years. We are very happy and this is for her."

She's amassed over 200,000 followers on Instagram, but admitted a few years ago that she shies away from the limelight, preferring a quiet private life to one you'd typically associate with a Premier League WAG.

Moura is nearing 200 games for Spurs since joining from PSG in 2018.

His finest moment for the club – which will go down in Tottenham history – came during the 2019 Champions League semi final second leg against Ajax where he netted a hattrick, culminating in an unfathomably dramatic winner with literally the last kick of the game.
