Tottenham's Erik Lamela comments on Instagram after scoring incredible Rabona goal

Tottenham Hotspur's Erik Lamela has commented on his unbelievable goal in the Europa League.

In case you missed Tottenham's win over Asteras Tripoli, something quite spectacular happened.

Argentine winger Erik Lamela scored one of the greatest goals anybody will score in 2014/15, and possibly even ever, it was that good.

Crossing one leg behind another, Lamela scored a Rabona goal from 20 yards out, bamboozling the opposition goalkeeper, and leaving television viewers scrambling for the replay button to try and work out how he had done it, and if he had really pulled off what they had just seen.

Speaking after the game, Lamela admitted it was hard to describe his thought process leading up to he strike, and that it was, to him, instinctive.

Being able to pull off such a strike is quite another thing to just being able to conceive it, and we can't think of another Tottenham player who would be likely to execute such a goal.

He also sent a message out on Instagram (top) thanking those who have believed in him since arriving at the club.

In case anybody was still in doubt as to Lamela's raw but blossoming talent, he confirmed it last night, and Tottenham will hope this can be his breakthrough moment, and he can show a little more consistency in his undoubted quality moving forward.
