Tottenham's summer signing Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen has expressed his delight in opening his goalscoring account for Spurs.

The 21-year-old came off the bench to replace Mousa Dembele in a Europa League group stage clash against Tromso IL.

The Denmark international struck a venomous effort into the top corner from long range to complete a 3-0 victory in the group stage opener.

Speaking after the game, the former Ajax star seemed extremely pleased.

"I’m really happy about it. A goal like that in just my second game is something I can only dream of," said Eriksen.

"A goal like that is not often something that happens in a game, more often in training! I was happy to see it go in."

It was only the playmaker's second appearance in Tottenham colours and Eriksen admitted it is taking him some time to settle down in England following his summer move from the Netherlands.

"I’m still in a hotel at the moment – perhaps I should stay there!" he joked. "I’m really excited to be here, it's a great club, nice teammates and everything is going well."

The £11.5 million signing seems to have begun a very promising career at Spurs and after scoring his first magnificent goal for the club, it appears that it will not take the 21-year-old long to find his feet in the Premier League.

The Dutchman is now keen to build on a fantastic week as the north London side travel to Cardiff City on Sunday in the Premier League.

"I read all about Cardiff because there is a Danish player there (Andreas Cornelius).

"Unfortunately he’s injured at the moment, but they have a lot of new players and they want to build something to stay in the Premier League, so it’s a tough place to play."
