Arsenal legend Thierry Henry couldn’t contain his excitement as Tottenham lost 2-0 to Sporting Lisbon in Tuesday’s Champions League clash.

Antonio Conte’s side conceded two late goals in Portugal to move them second in Group D after the opening two rounds, ahead of Frankfurt and Marseille.

Paulinho opened the scoring before Arthur Gomes sped past Spurs duo Cristian Romero and Emerson Royal for a low finish.

It was Gomes’ goal that particularly delighted former Arsenal striker Henry during his expert work for CBS Sports alongside Jamie Carragher.

“The misery of Tottenham… and the joy of Thierry Henry!” said Carragher as the screen played a replay of Gome’s goal.

Henry could be heard screaming with excitement three times during the clip – once when Gomes passed Romero, another time when he nutmed Emerson and the third time when the goal came in.

But the Arsenal hero tried to backtrack as he watched his reaction, saying: “That goal…I don’t care just because it’s Spurs but look at what he’s doing.

‘step over, [nut]Great, see you later! Hugo [Lloris], [nut]Great, see you later! 2-0, bye!’

It was a poor performance from Spurs and boss Conte made no secret of his disappointment after the game.

‘[It was a] difficult result,” Conte told BT Sport. “Sure, if you lose the game, you’re not happy. The game was in today [the] Equalization in the second half.

“We scored and tried to win the game. We can do a lot better in the last 10 minutes. They score with a corner and then we concede the second goal.

“It’s definitely a tough game. We tried to win but in the end we lost the game. When you arrive you have to try to fill the box.

“You have to be accurate and stronger to attack the goal. We can do much better. Now we have to try to rest and think about the next game in the Premier League.
