Spurs 5-1 Asteras Tripoli


A night to remember from Spurs’ England U-21 striker Harry Kane who nets a hat-trick and ends up in goal for the final three minutes after keeper Hugo Lloris is sent off with three minutes remaining.  Kane’s perfect night is somewhat blemished as his first act as stand-in goalkeeper sees him fumble the Greek side’s free-kick into his own net to give them a late consolation.  Despite Kane’s hat-trick, the match will be remembered for the first of Erik Lamela’s two goals – an incredible ‘rabona’ strike where he wraps his left leg around the back of his right and curls the ball past the Greek goalkeeper from 20 yards, much to the amazement of everyone involved.
