Roberto Martinez’s side ensured that they had qualified for the 2018 World Cup with a hard fought win – with the Spurs star opening the scoring before Romelu Lukaku bagged the decisive goal in the 2-1 triumph.
However, it was Vertonghen’s goal which stole the limelight, lining up his strike 25 yards from goal before smashing it brilliantly in to the bottom corner of the net.
What made it even better for watching Spurs fans was that the assist came from Mousa Dembele, who laid it perfectly in to his teammates path before the defender rocketed the ball home.
Many Tottenham fans were watching the match and were stunned by the strike – and wondered if it might lead to a similar occurrence in a white shirt any time soon…
