Eriksen celebrates birthday early with brilliant FK to fool Buffon

On the eve of his 26th birthday, Christian Eriksen made his mark by scoring a fantastic equaliser to help Tottenham draw 2-2 at Juventus in the first-leg of their Champions League knockout tie. The playmaker - who has consistently been one of the Premier League’s most creative forces - sent Gianluigi Buffon the wrong way with his cleverly-taken free-kick to rightfully earn the personal accolades. More crucially, Eriksen increased the chances of Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs marching into the quarter-finals, as they bring back two precious away goals to Wembley.
