Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane has been a man in form this season, but his blushes were spared tonight in the Europa League.

The London side eased to victory away to Asteras Tripolis, where Kane got on the scoresheet, but it will be his open goal miss that may well be remembered.

Thankfully for Kane he avoided the Ronnie Rosenthal moment when officials chalked the move for offside, but he won't look fondly on the replays.

Here is the goal he did score.
