Harry Kane said it ‘means the world’ for Tottenham to reach the final of the Capital One Cup.
Christian Eriksen’s double ensured Spurs avoided extra time at League One Sheffield United, his late goal giving the Londoners a 3-2 win on aggregate.
They will meet Chelsea at Wembley on March 1 and Kane told Sky Sports 1: ‘It means the world.
‘We were in cruise control and that was the worst thing we could have done. Credit to Sheffield United but it shows how much character we have.’
Che Adams scored two goals in 140 seconds for United to put them 2-1 ahead on the night and level at 2-2 overall after Eriksen’s opener.
Extra-time looked likely at that stage but Eriksen made sure Spurs will be facing Chelsea in a month.
‘At Wembley anything can happen,’ he added. ‘It’s 1-1 between us this season, it’s a decider if you like and there’s no better place for it than Wembley.’
Eriksen himself said: “When they scored they got confidence, and you saw the crowd, but we had to play our best.
“To be in the final is what everyone wants at Tottenham.”
