Former Tottenham winger Erik Lamela scored a stunning long-range effort for Sevilla during their 1-1 draw against Real Mallorca on Wednesday. 

Lamela, 29, joined the LaLiga side in the summer as part of a deal that sent young Spanish winger Bryan Gil the other way. 

His departure from Spurs brought an end to an eight-year stint in North London which was blighted by injuries and a number of frustrating yellow cards. 

Lamela hit the ground running for Sevilla, though, scoring twice on his league debut in the 3-0 win over Rayo Vallecano in August. 

The Argentine tallied arguably the best goal of his Sevilla career so far in midweek with a strike from distance, to help his side secure a point and take them level with table-toppers Real Madrid. 

Entering the field of play after 53 minutes with Julen Lopetegui’s men trailing 1-0, Lamela took matters into his own hands to curl a beautiful left-footed effort over and around Mallorca goalkeeper Manolo Reina. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Sometimes a team and league suit a player better than others, and it appears Spain is a good place for Lamela at the moment. He has shown that he has a lot of quality, as he demonstrated against Mallorca, but it never always came off for him here at Spurs.
