Christian Eriksen off the mark in Tottenham victory

Published Add your comment

Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen was on target in their latest Europa League game against Norwegian club Tromso IL.

Spurs cruised to victory in a comfortable 3-0 scoreline with both other goals from striker Jermain Defoe.

Eriksen made his second appearance as a new Tottenham player after completing a move from Erevidisie club Ajax in the summer in a deal worth £11million. The Denmark international made his first appearance in Tottenham's latest Premier League match against Norwich, providing an assist for Gylfi Sigurdsson's goal.

The 21-year-old magnificently curved the ball into the far corner from outside the box, picking the ball up from a Kyle Naughton pass to ease Spurs' victory over the Norwegian opposition.

Tottenham now lead their Europa League group with Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala behind them in second, Moldovan side FC Sheriff; both with a point a piece after their goalless draw. Finally, Tromso IL are sitting in last place.

With the seven additions over the summer, Spurs are in pole position to have a strong Europa League campaign this season compared to last season where they were knocked out by Swiss FC Basel in the quarter-Finals.
