Fan runs onto pitch to take free-kick for Tottenham vs West Ham | inside World Soccer

A fan decided to invade the Boleyn Ground pitch during Saturday's Premier League game between West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur and take a free-kick for the visiting side.

With Christian Eriksen lining up the free-kick in the 63rd minute, one opportunist fan ran across the field and curled a rather nice shot into the hands of West Ham goalkeeper Adrián.

After a small celebration, the pitch invader was bundled to the ground by stewards and dragged away.

It turns out his effort was actually better than Eriksen, who skied his attempt well over the crossbar.

Tottenham eventually won the game 1-0 after an injury time goal by new signing Eric Dier.
