THERE was only one person who celebrated Lucas Torreira's goal against Tottenham more than he did – his dad.

Picked out by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 77th minute, Torreira ran past Eric Dier before unleashing a low drive into the far corner past Hugo Lloris.
His strike put Unai Emery's men two goals to the good at the Emirates, and he celebrated in jubilant fashion as he took his top off and performed a knee slide by the corner flag.
And footage has surfaced of his father Ricardo beaming with joy and pride as he celebrated his deserved strike from the comfort of his food store.
He reacted by pumping his fists and shouting "golazo, golazo" before placing his hand on his heart as he revelled in his son's superb shot.
