Winger’s ‘fantasy goal’ summoned by critics→”Win the game today!”
It’s been a while since he left, but he still misses Tottenham.
Former Argentina international winger Erique Lamela, who was considered a contender for the position when Son joined Spurs in August 2015, reminisced.
He recalled a great goal he scored for Tottenham nine years ago and expressed his nostalgia and wished Spurs victory. Tottenham hosts Fulham in the ninth round of the Premier League on Thursday at 4am.
Lamela posted a video to his social media accounts on Oct. 23. It showed footage of his goal against Asteras Tripolis (Greece) in the 2014/15 UEFA Europa League group stage at White Hart Lane, his home ground, exactly nine years ago on October 23, 2014.
Lamela scored a multi-goal performance in Tottenham’s 5-1 victory that day, including one of his most notable goals, a so-called “Ravona shot” in which he twisted his left foot while supporting himself with his right foot and shot from the right side of his right foot.
Normally, he’s more comfortable shooting with his right foot, but to score, he deceives his opponent and unleashes a left-footed shot out of nowhere. It’s one of Lamela’s many talents, and he executed it in the North London derby against Arsenal on March 14, 2021, winning the Fuskas Award, which is given by FIFA to the player who scores the most spectacular goal in a soccer match during the year.
It brought back memories of nine years ago, when his trademark Ravona kick sent the crowd into a frenzy. It also brought back memories of his eight seasons at Tottenham. Lamela joined Spurs from AS Roma in 2013 and moved to Sevilla in Spain at the end of the 2020/21 season, the same season he won the Puskas.
Lamela was one of the first competitors Son faced when he arrived at Tottenham.
The Argentine was born in the same country as Pochettino and struggled in his first season at Tottenham in 2015/16. Lamela scored five goals in 34 games, while Son scored four goals in 28 games. Heung-min wasn’t a complete starter, making 15 substitute appearances in his first season.
However, in 2016/17, the competition shifted in his favor as he exploded for 14 goals in 34 Premier League games, including two Premier League Player of the Month 토토사이트 awards. Lamela went to Sevilla after frequent injuries. Lamela was once criticized by South Korean fans for making an individual breakaway instead of passing to Son Heung-min.
Lamela even went one-on-one with Son Heung-min during the Tottenham-Sevilla clash at the Suwon World Cup Stadium last summer.
