If I'm not mistaken Eriksen scored a goal almost exactly like that in one of his final matches for Ajax. So little pull-back on the kick. Delightful stuff.
Christian Eriksen. Gosh. *rubs thighs appreciatively*— Iain Macintosh (@iainmacintosh) September 19, 2013
86' GOAL TOTTENHAM! Eriksen drills a spectacular, swerving effort into the back of the net from distance to give Spurs a 3-0 lead!
85' Sandro with a vital intervention. Andersen was looking dangerous as Tromso countered but the Brazilian bolted back to break up the play.
82' Paulinho's shot is blocked, but Spurs are forcing the issue now. Paulinho gets a second crack and his effort sails wide of the target.
81' Defoe looking to complete his hat-trick, but full credit to Tromso - they've cut off the supply lines in this second half. Koppinen, Fojut and Moldskred have been terrific since the restart.
78' Andersen replaces Drage for Tromso.
74' And immediately upon Paulinho's introduction - and with Eriksen joining him and Sandro in the middle of a 4-3-3 - Tottenham have settled things down. It had threatened to get away from there for a spell.
Mixed performance from Lewis Holtby - some good stuff, some not so good.— Jack Pitt-Brooke (@JackPittBrooke) September 19, 2013
71' Paulinho has replaced Holtby for Spurs. Meanwhile, Fojut has been booked for his hack on Lamela.
69' Kristiansen has had the running of Naughton the last few minutes. Tromso with some sustained pressure now. Spurs need that extra body in the middle of the park, which is why Paulinho will replace one of Lamela, Holtby and Sigurdsson momentarily.
AVB deep in discussions with Paulinho - imagine he'll come on in a minute.— Jack Pitt-Brooke (@JackPittBrooke) September 19, 2013
67' Suddenly Tromso are venturing forward on occasion. Dawson was just forced into conceding a corner off Kristiansen. Sandro is forced to boot the ball out of bounds to relieve the pressure.
64' Eriksen has replaced Dembele, who was carried off on a stretcher. Didn't look good for the Belgium, and he released one anguished cry as he was tackled by Johnsen.
63' Pritchard! A bit brighter from Tromso here but the Welshman fires his shot over the bar!
Just past the hour mark at White Hart Lane. Spurs have so far enjoyed 74% possession and have out-shot Tromso 15-1. They've also completed 90% of their passes.
61' Johnsen, who came on at the half for Bendiksen, goes into the book for his challenge on Dembele.
59' Best moment there from Tromso. But one too many passes and it's dug out by Naughton.
