Few Tottenham players covered themselves in glory against Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side slumped to their second Champions League group stage defeat at Wembley and now have their work cut out to qualify for the knockout stages.

Moussa Sissoko was arguably the worst of Spurs’ underperforming players - although there were several contenders for that unwanted title - and one terrible effort at goal summed up his dismal display.

The France international, who was so impressive for Les Bleus at Euro 2016, ran through on goal and set himself for the shot.

But to describe Sissoko’s attempt at goal as a ‘shot’ would, in truth, be a gross exaggeration. (Scroll down to watch the video).

The 27-year-old sliced the ball harmlessly wide of Bernd Leno’s goal, much to the frustration of the Spurs faithful.

Gary Lineker summed it all up nicely with this tweet…

This pretty much nails it, too...

Real Madrid almost signed him in the summer...

Real Madrid must be mightily relieved they didn’t submit a £30 million bid - they were dangerously close to doing so - during the summer transfer window.

Pochettino 'embarrassed' by defeat

Pochettino didn’t single out any of his players after the match, although the Argentine coach admitted the defeat was “embarrassing” for him.

"There is nowhere better in the world to play football,” the Spurs boss was quoted as saying by BBC Sport. “We were the problem, not Wembley."

"It is embarrassing for me.

"After two games at Wembley, Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen, there is no excuse. We were poor and we need to find the answer in ourselves.

"We are very disappointed and we cannot show the performance that we have in recent weeks - that is the problem."

Spurs must try and win both of their next games

Tottenham now find themselves third in Group E, having secured four points from their opening four matches.

The north London outfit take on Monaco in their next match on November 22 - a match they cannot afford to lose now - before going head-to-head with CSKA Moscow at Wembley on December 7.
