Christian Eriksen came up with Tottenham Hotspur’s equaliser in their 2-2 draw with Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The Premier League club fell 2-0 behind to Juve courtesy of a double from Gonzalo Higuain, and it did appear that Spurs were effectively heading out of the competition at that point as the home side looked to secure a comfortable first-leg advantage.
Tottenham had other ideas, however, with Harry Kane striking back before Eriksen, who is valued at £63m by transfermarkt.co.uk, eventually made it 2-2 in the latter stages.
Eriksen’s overall performance was brilliant, and the 26-year-old has now established himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in world football.
It was actually the Dane’s birthday on Wednesday, and as expected, the Spurs supporters were out in force to lavish praise on a player that has scored nine times and registered eight assists in 33 appearances in all competitions this season.
