Walker: I don't practice free-kicks

Next Story

Tottenham's Kyle Walker scored a stunning free-kick to seal their 2-0 victory over Blackburn on Sunday.

Spurs were leading 1-0 up to that point after of a goal from Rafa van der Vaart on the 22nd minute.

On the 75th minute the Dutch international was standing next to the ball, and just when it looked like he was going to hit the free-kick he allowed Walker to step in.

"Rafa placed the ball down and I said 'can I have it?' and he said 'no chance', Walker told Spurs' official website. "But then he said I could have it and that was that."

The right-back sent White Hart Lane ballistic with a travelling curling shot from 30 yards out, that gave Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson no chance.

The second goal eased Tottenham's nerves and helped them regain fourth place on the table to keep their hopes of European football alive.

"As soon as it left my foot, I thought 'it's got a chance' but you never know until it hits the net", Walker having admitted that he doesn't practise free-kicks. "I just felt it was right".
