Mat Ryan was in fine form but could not stop Brighton and Hove Albion sliding to defeat as they lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League overnight.
The Caltex Socceroo keeper was beaten by a first half effort from Serge Aurier and a second half goal to Korea Republic's Heung-Min Son at Wembley Stadium.
Ryan made a fabulous reflex save with his left foot from Harry Kane’s strike, before keeping out Son’s follow-up, which was ruled offside.
The former Hyundai A-League star then backed that up with a tip away from Erik Lamela’s effort.
This was Brighton's eighth loss of the season as they now sit three points above the EPL drop zone.
Ryan's side are next in action against Burnley on Saturday.
