Andre Villas-Boas heaped praise on Gareth Bale on Thursday night after the Welshman earned Tottenham Hotspur a 2-1 UEFA Europa League round-of-32, first-leg win over Lyon.
Bale scored two free-kicks, the last of which came in the 90th minute.
The 22-year-old put the hosts ahead on the stroke of half-time with a thunderous effort from 35 yards and, after Samuel Umtiti had levelled from the edge of the penalty 10 minutes after the restart with a spectacular half-volley, Bale scored the winner in injury time.
Villas-Boas said: "Today we saw not only two great moments but three, because their goal was absolutely fantastic too. Gareth [Bale] was fantastic."
Elsewhere, Chelsea take a 1-0 lead for their second leg against Sparta Prague at Stamford Bridge after Brazil international Oscar scored a late winner in the Czech Republic.
Newcastle had two goals disallowed as they drew 0-0 at home to Metalist Kharkiv, while Liverpool face a tough task to qualify after losing 2-0 away from home against Russian side Zenit St Petersburg.
