Watch Erik Lamela get nutmegged by an Aussie Rules player


Tottenham winger Erik Lamela had a red-faced moment during Spurs' pre-season tour to Australia on Wednesday when he was nutmegged by Aussie Rules footballer Sam Mitchell.

Spurs were doing a promotional shoot with AFL team Hawthorn in Melbourne after Lamela scored in the 2-1 defeat to Juventus at the MCG the previous night.

The Argentina winger was showing off his ball skills when Mitchell - who at 33 is one of the oldest players in the Aussie league - decided it was a good opportunity to bring him down a peg or two.

It drew a few laughs from the players - Kieran Trippier seemed pretty impressed by it - but poor old Lamela looked a little bit sheepish.

He need not worry too much. Mitchell is one of the best players in the AFL, his Hawthorn side have won the past three titles - and they're top of the league this season.

The Hawks midfielder also just played his 300th game - a feat few have managed in the competition's 119-year history.
