Jermain Defoe equalled Tottenham Hotspur’s all-time European goal record as Spurs edged to a 2-0 victory over Sheriff Tiraspol.

Elsewhere, former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse scored a late penalty to secure a draw for Kuban Krasnodar after Michu had given Swansea the lead.

Here is some of the Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to the Europa League action.

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker ‏(@kylewalker2) is cheering on his team-mates: “Come on the lads #COYS”

Former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan ‏(@MichaelVaughan) can’t resist a sly dig: “Tottenham are really good Thursday night team…..”

Ex-Spurs chairman Lord Sugar ‏(@Lord_Sugar) is quoting some classic Bob Marley as Defoe strikes: “Great goal by Defoe he shot the sheriff 2-0 Spurs.”

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend ‏(@andros_townsend) hails his team-mate’s goal: “What a strike @IAmJermainDefoe #tekkers”

Before realising it wasn’t quite as impressive as Townsend (‏@andros_townsend) first thought: “Oops deflection! Lol!”

More from Spurs right-back Walker (‏@kylewalker2): “Well done lads, great win and clean sheet away from home. In a good position for our remaining group games now! #COYS”

Hull City midfielder David Meyler ‏(@DavidMeyler7) is left flabbergasted by a Swansea error: “Wow what’s the keeper doing!”

Swansea City defender Angel Rangel ‏(@arangelz) looks to the positives: “Big disappointment in the end but we’ll take the positives: seven points and top of the group so move on to the next game #unbeaten.”
