Spurs winger Lamela hits stunning brace in victory over Toronto FC

Tottenham winger Erik Lamela struck a superb double in their friendly win over Toronto FC.

The 22-year old Argentine, who made just nine Barclays Premier League appearances in an injury-hit campaign last season, has vowed to recreate the form which made him Serie A top scorer in 2012-13 with Roma.

And Lamela looked as good as his word, firing his first on 18 minutes with a Gareth Bale-esque finish from just inside the box, and his second with equal aplomb five minutes before the break.

Roberto Soldado was provider for both in the pre-season friendly at BM Field, giving further optimism to Spurs fans.
