WATCH: Spurs midfielder Erik Lamela strikes astounding ‘rabona’ goal


Absolutely magnificent. Some are calling it the goal of the year.

Taking on Asteras Tripolis in a Europa League group-stage match, Tottenham Hotspur man Erik Lamela executed a perfect Rabona goal from 17 yards out in the 29th minute, whipping his left foot around his right leg to nail a shot past goalkeeper Tomas Kosicky, who had little to no chance of saving the venture.

Tottenham went on to win the match 5-1, and Lamela earned a brace as forward Harry Kane tallied a hat trick.
