Moussa Sissoko completed 89 minutes during Spurs draw against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium on Tuesday night – and Tottenham fans has taken to Twitter to talk about his performance.
The 28-year-old former Newcastle United midfielder starred for the Spurs as they earned a hard-fought point in the Champions League group stages against Madrid.
Spurs took the lead in the 28th minute due to a Raphael Varane own goal, but Cristiano Ronaldo managed to equalise from the penalty spot before half-time.
Both sides play hard to score at the Bernabeu in the second-half, but some brilliants saves between the sticks from Hugo Lloris and Keylor Navas kept the score level.
Sissoko was promoted to Tottenham XI for the European clash and his brilliant performance at Spurs continued.
The France international has been subject to critics during his first 12 months with the north London club after joining for £30million in 2016.

Moussa Sissoko has been given the chance in the first team at the beginning of the season due to injuries to the likes of Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama, but the midfielder had managed to step up in their absence.
Sissoki is beginning to show the kind of form he did for France in the European Championships and has managed to win around the Spurs faithful.
