(AP) -- Erik Lamela's outrageous goal in a big win for Tottenham illuminated the third round of Europa League group-stage matches, in which Fiorentina and Dynamo Moscow maintained their perfect starts to the competition.

In what will rank as one of the best goals seen in Europe this season, Lamela wrapped his left leg around the back of his standing leg and somehow generated enough power to fire the ball into the corner from outside the area.

"I was stunned, for two minutes I was just thinking about that goal," Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen said. "I've seen a lot of YouTube clips but I've never seen a goal like it."
