'Worst player', 'Naive' – Tottenham fans heartbroken by display of one player v Juventus

Tottenham played an absolute blinder in the first 45 minutes at Wembley, but lost out in the second-half to two quick-fire goals in a heartbreaking defeat.

Spurs led 1-0 at half-time but they were lucky to get away with what was a clear penalty.

Jan Vertonghen brought down Douglas Costa in the first-half, in a rash challenge, but the foul wasn’t given despite it looking a stonewall.

And Vertonghen was perhaps fortunate to be on the pitch after another rash challenge brought him a yellow card in the 28th minute.

That would have changed the complexion of the game massively but it would have been unfair on Tottenham, who were the best team and good value for their 1-0 half-time lead.

In-form player of the moment Heung-Min Son got the Tottenham goal after threatening earlier, and he paid his manager back for selecting him ahead of Erik Lamela.

However, the second-half didn’t go to plan at all, and two quick-fire goals from Juventus turned the game on its head, with Kane coming oh-so close at the death to get an equaliser.

At the heart was an uncharacteristically shaky performance from Vertonghen and Spurs fans took to Twitter to let the world know.

Here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans:
