A new signing has scored his first goal Premier League goal for Tottenham Hotspur! Okay so that signing may have arrived last January and the goal has come in August, but it was worth the wait for Lucas Moura.

The Brazilian winger has opened his league account in fantastic fashion, curling a late first half effort off the post and into the back of the net to give Spurs a 1-0 lead over Fulham. Watch it here:

Lucas has appeared sparingly for the club since arriving from Paris Saint Germain at the end of the winter transfer window last season. He had an earlier chance in this match that he couldn’t take advantage of, but he rectified that by scoring this stunner to give his team the lead.

Who needs summer signings when winter ones can come good in the summer ... or something like that.
