DREAM TEAM POINTS: Gent 1 Tottenham Hotspur 0

Gent will take a shock 1-0 lead into the second leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie against Tottenham Hotspur after sealing a vital victory.

Jeremy Perbet scored on 59 minutes to give the Belgian mid-table side the lead, while Hugo Lloris had to be at his very best to turn a Danijel Milicevic shot onto the post.

But there was only one name on everyone’s lips ahead of kick-off, and that belonged to Gent’s right-back, Thomas Foket.

Yes, that’s right, FOKET.

Fans and pundits alike were hoping the number 32 would do something spectacular, because there’s nothing we English like more than a guy with a slightly funny surname.


And it was Spurs fans who were left saying a version of the right-back’s name, as they left themselves with work to do heading back to Wembley next week.

Anyway, here’s your Dream Team Europe points…


TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR: Lloris 0, Walker -1, Alderweireld 0, Dier 3, Davies 3, Dembele 3, Wanyama 0, Winks 0, Alli -1, Sissoko 0, Kane 0

SUBS: Son 0, Nkoudou 0, Eriksen 0

BOOKED: Walker, Alli
