GIF: Rodrigo Gets a Crucial Away Goal for Benfica at Tottenham

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIMarch 13, 2014

Benfica's Rodrigo scored a crucial away goal for visiting Benfica in their last-16 match with Tottenham in the Europa League. 

Miralem Sulejmani caught Tottenham's defence off guard on a high line and set the speedy Rodrigo free with an excellent through ball. Rodrigo did well with his finish, beating Hugo Lloris with a low, curling finish to his far post. 


Benfica manager Jorge Jesus had perhaps the most impressive celebration of the night. We'll let you be the judge as to what to dub this dance.
