Nabil Bentaleb and Jake Livermore react on Twitter to Ryan Mason's special moment

Nathan Baker and Ryan Mason

The Tottenham and Hull City midfielders congratulated the north London club's captain for the night on Thursday.

Ryan Mason was understandably proud to have captained Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night.

Indeed, the 24-year-old was Tottenham's skipper against Fiorentina in the Europa League. And he didn't do a bad job of leading his side, who earned a 1-1 draw away from home.

Naturally, the north London outfit would have wanted to continue their winning run (they had won seven in a row in the Premier League and FA Cup heading into the Fiorentina game).

But an away goal is an away goal and heading back to White Hart Lane with a draw is certainly a positive in Europe.

Mason wasn't the only one celebrating, though, as Spurs team-mate Nabil Bentaleb - who is currently out of favour in the capital - congratulated the 24-year-old on his achievement.

And former team-mate Jake Livermore, now at Hull City, also sent Mason a positive message on Twitter.

Tottenham's battle on three fronts continues on Sunday afternoon, when they host Crystal Palace in the FA Cup.
