Roberto Soldado’s lack of confidence was more evident that ever on the half hour mark in Florence.
The striker initially made a clever run, getting on the end of an excellent Lamela pass after a quick Tottenham counter-attack.

Soldado was clean through on goal with Chadli to his left. He chose to pass, but it was terribly misjudged and the goalkeeper easily collected the ball. Here’s how Twitter reacted.
What was that Soldado?!?

WHAT A MISTAKE BY SOLDADO. Good grief.

That sums up Soldado's career at Tottenham.

Oh my. How did they mess that one up? Spurs 2 on 1 against the keeper and they don’t score. Impressive more than anything else #FIOTOT

Oh dear Soldado, what was that!

Keeper seemed to show him half the goal there – lack of confidence as clear as ever.

Whatever Soldado's apologists say, if you cost £26million and you're in that position, you bury it or make sure your pass is right. 0-0 (31)

#thfc Great ball from Lamela, great run from Soldado but that's so dumb and lazy at the end. Commit the keeper and make sure!
