There wasn't the slightest bit of need to be this flash but we're glad he was.
Tottenham Hotspur’s Erik Lamela scored one of the greatest goals ever on Thursday during their 5-1 drubbing of Asteras Tripolis.
And here it is in glorious slow motion.
Needless to say he's garnered a few fans...
Although the manager was less than impressed.
It's not as easy as it looks.
But this is a pretty decent attempt.
Oh, and it was far better than this old gem.
