Lamela found the back of the net at White Hart Lane by wrapping his left foot around his right leg to beat Tomas Kosicky with a rabona shot, and Vertonghen believes that the goal was the best he had seen in any game of his career.
"100% best goal I've seen live," the Belgian defender told Tottenham's official website. "I've seen a lot of YouTube clips but I've never seen a goal like it.
"I was stunned, for two minutes I was just thinking about that goal. I think the Puskas award is already his."
The FIFA Puskas award is handed to the player who is judged to have scored the best goal of the year.
