Lennon and more: Twitter reacts to Eriksen’s stunning Tottenham free-kick
Aaron Lennon and Gary Neville tweet about Christian Eriksen's brilliant free-kick
Christian Eriksen has scored arguably the best free-kick of the domestic campaign so far as the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder broke the deadlock at Bramall Lane on Wednesday night.
The Denmark international has scored eight Premier League goals this season, including a series of late winners to earn vital points for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the race for a top-four finish.
Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order after Eriksen fired the north London side into an early second-leg lead in the Capital One Cup semi-final.

Manchester United legend Gary Neville (@GNev2) approves of the set-piece: “Now that is a goal!!”
Now, former Southampton magician Matt Le Tissier (@mattletiss7) is a player who knows all about special goals: “Eriksen!! Just wow!!!!”
QPR midfielder Jermaine Jenas (@jjenas8) would be proud of that effort: “what have I just seen! That free kick was out of this world!”
Liverpool legend Michael Owen (@themichaelowen) describes Eriksen’s strike as one of the best free-kicks that he has seen in a while: “Oh my word. I’ve not seen a free kick as good as that in ages. #Eriksen”
