Erik Lamela's 'rabona' goal was unbelievable - Pochettino

Mauricio Pochettino described Erik Lamela's wonder-strike during Tottenham's 5-1 win over Greek side Asteras Tripolis as "unbelievable".

Lamela scored with an outrageous 'rabona'-style strike, wrapping his left foot around his right leg to curl the ball in from 20 yards.
"It was a great goal, maybe the best by one of my players," said Pochettino.
Asked about his lack of celebration, the Spurs manager said: "I only show emotion at home, and in my bed."

Lamela's magnificent strike was hailed by his team-mates as one of the best they have seen.

Striker Harry Kane, who hit a hat-trick as Spurs strolled to victory, said: "It was crazy. He's got that in his locker and it was great for him to do it on the big stage."

Defender Jan Vertonghen added: "I was stunned, for two minutes I was just thinking about that goal.

"It is 100% the best goal I've seen live. I've seen a lot of YouTube clips but I've never seen a goal like it. I think the Puskas award is already his."
