Tottenham 2-2 Gent: Nigerian duo send Spurs packing

Europa League By: Olakunle Brown | 23/02/2017

Nigerian duo, Moses Simon and Anderson Esiti were in action for Gent in the second leg of the Europa League against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Thursday night.

Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s men entered the encounter with a first leg advantage having won the first leg 1-0 and their cause was helped by a first half red card to Dele Alli.

Christian Eriksen scored for the home side ten minutes into the tie but an own goal from topscorer Harry Kane ensured the first period ended 1-1.

The home side were given a massive boost when Kenyan international Victor Wanyama scored from the edge of the box to make it 2-1 but substitute Jeremy Perbet equalized to dash the hopes of progression for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.
