Tottenham fans were impressed with new signing Moussa Sissoko on Twitter, after he starred for France against the Netherlands.
Sissoko, who moved to North London on deadline day for £30million, was part of Didier Deschamps’ side that earned a 1-0 victory against Danny Blind’s Netherlands in Group A of the 2018 World Cup qualification stage.
The former Toulouse star played on the right wing of France’s 4-2-3-1 system, lining up alongside Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and West Ham’s Dimitri Payet.
The win pushes France level on points with Group A leaders Sweden in the 2018 World Cup qualifying phase, as they sit ahead of the likes of Luxembourg, Bulgaria and Belarus.
Spurs fans were impressed with their new signing on Twitter, with the former Newcastle man showing Tottenham fans his pace and power on the France counter attack.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
