Gent Knockout Spurs In Europa

Tottenham Hotspurs were yesterday sent packing from the Europa League as Gent held them to a 2-2 draw before a 83,000 home crowd at Wembley.

Spurs, who trailed 1-0 after the first leg of the last-32 tie, made a great start as Christian Eriksen slipped an angled shot under Gent keeper Lovre Kalinic.

The visitors equalized through Harry Kane’s own goal and when midfielder Dele Alli was sent off shortly before half time for a dangerous tackle all hopes dimmed for Spurs.

The shocker came 10 minutes to end of game when Jeremy cancelled out Spurs lead with a superb kick into the top-left corner.
