Christian Eriksen reveals how Arsenal keeper Petr Cech inspired his spectacular free-kick in Champions League
Christian Eriksen has revealed how Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech inspired his sensational free-kick in Tottenham's draw with Juventus on Tuesday night.
The midfielder put in a man of the match performance against the Serie A giants in the Champions League, as Spurs battled back to get something from the game.
The Old Lady came out the blocks at a rapid pace, and were two goals ahead of their Premier League opposition in just nine minutes.
Gonzalo Higuain becoming just is the third footballer in Champions League history to score a brace before 10 minutes had been played.
But Tottenham battled back through their talisman Harry Kane, who reduced the deficit before Spurs were awarded a free-kick at the edge of the area.
Eriksen was tasked with finding the back of the net against one of the world's best shot-stoppers in Gianluigi Buffon, but managed it in spectacular fashion.
Discussing his set-piece after the game, the Dane revealed how Gunners keeper Cech was the unlikely inspiration behind his strike.
"I had one at the weekend against Cech where I should have gone the keeper's side and he read it. Luckily today he went opposite," explained Eriksen.
"But I had a feeling, and I saw the wall move, and I think I saw him take a step as well Buffon, and luckily I changed my mind and went for the other corner and it went in."
