LONDON — A supporter ran onto the field during Saturday's Premier League game between West Ham and Tottenham and managed to take a free kick before being chased away by a steward.

The fan ran across the field during the second half as Tottenham's Christian Eriksen was preparing to take a free kick just outside the West Ham area. The supporter ran up to the ball and lofted a shot that went over the wall and was heading into the net before goalkeeper Adrian comfortably plucked it out of the air.

The fan continued running, leaving the pitch with a steward chasing close behind.

It turns out his effort was actually better than Eriksen's, who sent his shot over the bar.

Tottenham won 1-0 after an injury time goal by Eric Dier.
