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.
#EuropaLeague sissoko should swap with the Ghent player cause every time he's near the ball I say oh Foket

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…
