Hey, remember that time when Erik Lamela scored a 20-yard rabona goal in the Europa League in a 5-1 win over Asteras Tripolis at White Hart Lane? That was awesome. And now it's been named by UEFA as the #1 goal of the Europa League 2014-15 competition. Deservedly. Because it was amazing.

In case you forgot, here's what it looked like:

I've seen a couple of rabona passes before, but never anything like this. And let's not forget, he did it once before as a youngster playing with River Plate. Lamela may not be setting the world on fire like we thought he would when Tottenham purchased him from Roma in summer of 2013, but we know that he's capable of committing moments of magic. This video is proof enough of that.
