Tottenham Hotspur let a 2-0 aggregate lead slip to lose to Dinamo Zagreb in the last 16 of the UEFA Europa League to crash out of Europe on Thursday.

Spurs brought a 2-0 lead into the second leg of the tie thanks to two Harry Kane goals in London last week.

Most thought this would be a routine enough trip to Croatia for José Mourinho's side, with many tipping them to go all the way and win this competition.

The hosts had other ideas though and two goals from Mislav Orsic in normal time brought the tie to extra-time.

Then 28-year-old Orsic secured a hat-trick for himself in the 106th minute of play with a beauty of a strike.

Dinamo held on and despite Tottenham sniffing around for an equaliser, bringing on Gareth Bale, they couldn't find that away goal that would have sent them through.

Elsewhere, Arsenal lost 1-0 to Olympiacos, who knocked them out last season, thanks to a Youssef El-Arabi goal in the 51st minute.

However, Mikel Arteta's side go through to the last eight 3-2 on aggregate with Martin Odegaard, Gabriel and Mohamed Elneny goals last week proving crucial.
