Pitch invader takes free-kick for Tottenham at West Ham

Early Doors

We have got a bit tired of pitch invader/streakers but you have to give this chap at the West Ham United v Tottenham match a bit of credit.

The fan, (who bares a striking resemblance to Swansea City manager Garry Monk), ran onto the pitch during the second-half of the opening day clash at Upton Park but much more impressive was the fact that he also managed to take a free-kick AND HIT THE TARGET!

Okay so it wasn't exactly the toughest save Hammers' keeper Adrián will have to make this season but at least the fan made the keeper work.

The same cannot be said about Christian Eriksen, who reacted with anger to the fan taking the free-kick just before he was about to, before then blazing his effort over the bar.
