Tottenham v FC Sheriff 2688301 Off The Mark! Erik Lamela scores his first goal for Spurs in win over SheriffHaving arrived from Roma amid much fanfare in the summer transfer window, Erik Lamela has yet to set English football alight.

Reportedly struggling to adapt due to the language barrier, Lamela’s been limited to Europa League action for the time being while he acclimatises.

And that process was significantly sped up this evening as Lamela scored his first goal in English football, and hence for Spurs, against Sheriff.

His celebration, as if to say, ‘What’s the big deal?’, shows he wasn’t overly concerned about things, and may now be ready to stake a claim for the league starting line-up.
