Bernardo Silva’s shot was deflected in off Danny Rose to level scores at 2-2.

Then, after 21 minutes, Sterling converted De Bruyne’s brilliant low cross to make it 3-2.

The strike set a new Champions League record of the quickest to five goals in the competition.

  • Football can be painful at times. Blue moon rising. We shall be back

     
  • The quality of football I saw in the Man City v Tottenham and Juve v Ajax were of the highest levels that I have seen recently.

    Oh my goodness!.

    Ajax particularly are playing football that is out of this world: the one-two passes, slick moves, pass-and-go, link up play.

    I would have preferred a Liverpool v Ajax semi finals.

    As it stands, I predict a Barcelona v Ajax final. Now, that will be a spectacle!

    Yes, these matches were out of this World. It was something l have never seen before.
    Ironically, a lot of these wonderful players don’t or can’t replicate their skills to their National teams.
