Paris Saint-Germain 2 Tottenham 4: Eriksen, Alderweireld score stunning goals + Highlight

Christian Eriksen and Toby Alderweireld scored
long-range stunners to see Tottenham to an
entertaining 4-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain on
Saturday.
Eriksen scored from 30 yards at Camping World
Stadium to draw Spurs level after Edinson Cavani's
opener in the International Champions Cup clash.
PSG goalkeeper Kevin Trapp endured a miserable
outing, his error gifting Eric Dier a goal to put
Tottenham ahead.
A thrilling first half saw four goals scored, with
Javier Pastore equalising for PSG.
The second half was quieter, with Spurs winning
thanks to Alderweireld and a Harry Kane penalty
after playing against 10 men following Trapp's
sending off.

While this marked PSG's second game at the ICC,
it was Spurs' first match in almost two months, but
both teams played with plenty of energy.
PSG started brightly and Cavani headed wide after
just 30 seconds, but his second chance would be
the opening goal.
The Ligue 1 giants broke well down the left, Adrien
Rabiot bursting in behind before crossing for
Cavani to apply a side-footed finish.

However, Spurs were level just five minutes later
and in spectacular fashion.
After receiving a pass from Georges-Kevin
N'Koudou, Eriksen's 30-yard effort gave Trapp no
chance as it found its way in via the underside of
the crossbar.
There were plenty of chances at both ends and
another goal followed in the 18th minute.
Under heavy pressure, Trapp tried to play a pass
out, but Dier intercepted and saw his block go into
the back of the net.
After a drinks break, PSG levelled through Pastore
nine minutes before half-time.
Left in plenty of space down the left, Pastore took a
pass from Rabiot before skipping into the box and
finishing into the top corner.
Dier struck the woodwork with a header late in an
entertaining half, and Trapp's nightmare continued
seconds into the second.
A long pass over the top appeared set to cause the
goalkeeper no danger, but he inexplicably handled
outside his area and was sent off.

Substitute goalkeeper Alphonse Areola made a
save from Kane's free-kick as Spurs always looked
like capitalising on their numerical advantage.
Eriksen almost struck from distance again in the
71st minute before Tottenham finally went ahead
once more through Alderweireld.
The defender received a pass from Victor Wanyama
before unleashing a 25-yard strike into the bottom
corner.
Kane sealed the win with a powerful penalty in the
88th minute after a handball in the area.
