Tottenham Hotspur attacker Erik Lamela has taken to social networking site Twitter to wish his former club River Plate the best of luck for today’s big game against Barcelona.
Argentine giants River will face Spanish and European champions Barcelona in the final of the Club World Cup at the International Stadium Yokohama in Yokohama in just over half an hour’s time.
Lamela, who can play as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, hopes that his former club River win.
The 23-year-old started his career at the Argentina powerhouse and played for them until 2011 when he joined Italian outfit AS Roma.
Lamela’s tweet when translated into English reads: “Let’s go Los Millonarios. Cheering from here.”
Falcao’s tweet when translated to English reads: “Let’s go River!!! Ready to cheer al millo.”

Barcelona will head into the match as favourites, but one should not dismiss River’s chances of winning it.
