Tottenham grabbed two of those goals through Heung-Min Son, who became the highest scoring Asian player in the Champions League on 12 goals to give the Spurs a 2-1 lead.

With the score locked at 4-4 in the Champions League quarter-final, Eriksen passed the ball back towards his own goal.

It is not certain if the video assistant referee (VAR), Massimiliano Irrati of Italy, or the official on the pitch, Cuneyt Cakir from Turkey, had access to the specific angle which showed the contact with his arm, but they would have been well within their rights to award it anyway if they judged it was not deliberate and his arm was not away from his body.

His goal against City side helped Tottenham create history at the Etihad as Tottenham progressed to the Champions League semi-final, where they face Ajax.

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen admitted he was lucky after he was guilty of giving the ball away in the build-up to what looked set to be a decisive City goal, only for a video review to deny Raheem Sterling a last gasp victor.

CITY'S late goal was ruled out because Christian Eriksen's back pass struck Bernardo Silva's leg before it reached Sergio Aguero, according to the laws of the game. And would De Bruyne or Aguero be sent packing if City could only retain one of their services? I am so happy because the effort is massive from the squad who have lived with everything.

"We have proved we deserve to be here at the top, amongst the top teams in the world", he said.

When the executive committee of UEFA announced last December in Dublin that they would be introducing VAR from the knockout stages of the Champions League this season, they started a process which culminated in a once-in-a-generation event at the Etihad on Wednesday night.

Sterling thought he had settled the affair in the most dramatic fashion but City's jubilation quickly turned sour and Tottenham were left to celebrate a first European Cup semi-final appearance since 1962. Their lethal front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all scored in that order. It was a good game to play, but I'm lucky I'm on the good side. "I didn't see the ball", he said.

He added on BT Sport: "We saw the game yesterday and they went through so it would have been a fairy tale to play them and now it is a fairy tale".
