Who can match up to silky Tottenham Hotspur star Erik Lamela?
A Thursday night Europa League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Greek Super League outfit Asteras Tripolis perhaps didn’t set too many pulses racing outside of White Hart Lane – but that certainly changed when Erik Lamela crashed in an incredible Rabona goal from outside the box to put his side 2-0 ahead in the first half.

Whilst Lamela’s audacious strike was one of the finest examples of the Rabona that football has seen, it is far from the only one, as this list of six other wonderful Rabonas from the Mirror shows.
Take a look and marvel at the technique and skill involved in these:

Last night’s game against Asteras in North London wasn’t the first Rabona that Lamela has ever pulled off – he did this when playing for River Plate’s youth team in his native Argentina.
