Jan Vertonghen and Ben Davies hail Erik Lamela's wonder strike
Erik Lamela’s wonder strike was the biggest talking point from Tottenham Hotspur’s 5-1 win against Asteras Tripolis on Thursday.
The Argentina international scored a remarkable ‘rabona’-like strike, wrapping his left foot around his right leg to curl the ball in from 20 yards at White Hart Lane.
And here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals to Lamela’s memorable goal.
