I dream a lot about goals like that: Erik Lamela

The winner of the award was an incredible rabona by Tottenham's Eric Lamela against Arsenal in the North-London derby. The winger audaciously swung his left foot around his right and smashed a hit through the legs of Thomas Partey to open the scoring. Reflecting on his goal, Lamela said, "It has a different feeling to do it in the derby. These games are completely different to other ones and it’s a very, very special goal. I dream a lot about goals like that, especially in a derby, but it was in one second that I decided to shoot like that.”
