Even if 21-year-old Spurs striker/emergency goalkeeper Harry Kane plays professional football until he's 50, he probably won't have a more memorable day than he did in his side's 5-1 win over Asteras Tripoli in the Europa League.

It started off well enough when he opened the scoring the 13th minute and went on to complete the first hat trick of his career in the 81st minute. But then it got weird.

Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was sent off in the 87th minute, after they had already used all three of their substitutes. So Lloris swapped shirts with Kane and the goal scorer suddenly had to try and stop others from doing the same.

Kane immediately had to face a free kick from a dangerous position. It did not go well.

So Kane scored three and conceded one howler as Spurs ended up winning 5-1. And now we know what happens when the cosmic forces that write the scripts for football matches do it while they're on drugs.

Despite Kane's hilarious finish to the game, he did still get the match ball. One that will serve as a prompt for his best football story for years to come.
