Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Vincent Janssen has rediscovered his goalscoring form in Mexico.

The Dutch international experienced a difficult time in North London having only managed to score just six goals in 42 games following his £17m transfer from AZ Alkmaar in 2016 (BBC).

During the summer he made the somewhat unfamiliar switch to the Mexican top flight when he joined Monterrey for £6.3million (FourFourTwo).

Janssen scored an impressive goal in the first leg of the Copa MX Apertura semi-final against Necaxa to give his team a 2-1 lead going into the return leg.

The ball arrived at the Dutchman’s feet inside the penalty area and he showed great improvisation to flick the ball over the Necaxa defence and finished with his left foot from a tight angle into the bottom corner of the net.

The goal meant that Janssen has now scored ten times in nineteen appearances in all competitions for Monterrey this season (transfermarkt).
