Tottenham fans react to Vincent Janssen Twitter post after victory v Millwall
By Harvey Byrne
Tottenham fans on Twitter have applauded Vincent Janssen after the attacker shared a message to fans following his goal scoring display against Millwall on Sunday.
The 22-year-old centre-forward took the White Hart Lane pitch as a 74th minute substitute with Dele Alli departing the field.
The match saw Spurs run out comfortable 6-0 victors and Janssen played his part by netting his side’s fifth goal of the FA Cup tie.
A hat-trick from Son Heung-min alongside efforts from Christian Eriksen and Alli also added to the scoreline, but it was Janssen’s goal which was special, as it marked his first for the club from open play.
The Holland international was considerably quiet on his personal Twitter account after the match, sharing just four words with none mentioning his goal.

However, Tottenham fans on social media more than made up for the striker’s lack of celebrations with their replies to the striker’s post.
Large sections of the support were keen to congratulate Janssen on his goal, while others shared they hoped it would trigger many more strike’s from the front man.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Well done Vince so happy for you hope this triggers you on to many many more????????

Janssen has scored five goals and provided three in 30 appearances for the club since his £17million move from AZ Alkmaar in the summer.
With Harry Kane leaving the field injured on Sunday, now could be the time for the striker to truly show what he can do.
