Sigurdsson scores fantastic goal for Iceland - should Spurs have let him go?

The Swansea man once again reminded the Londoners what they are missing with his fourth goal since the start of the season.

Gylfi Sigurdsson is a footballer with a spectacular goal in his locker if ever there was one.

Having scored awesome goals throughout his career, he isn't going to stop anytime soon, and the former Spurs and Reading star can add another stunner to his copybook after Iceland's recent match away to Latvia. 

Receiving the ball in the area, Sigurdsson flicked it through his own legs, flummoxing the defender marking him, before dispatching impressively for his 7th international goal.

It was somewhat reminiscent of the midfielder's spectacular effort against Hull in the League Cup last season, where Sigurdsson performed a piece of skill to give him the time and space to smash the ball home.

Though that goal was some 30 yards out, his effort in Riga was inside a crowded penalty area, and opened the scoring in what would go on to be a comfortable 3-0 win for the island nation.

Sigurdsson has already demonstrated that perhaps Spurs were too quick to see him depart White Hart Lane, scoring once in the league this season as well in the League Cup. His creative talents have also been impressive, with 6 assists meaning he is second only to Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas when it comes to setting up goals, not to mention possessing double the number of Tottenham's most creative player, Erik Lamela.

But Tottenham's loss is Swansea's game, and the Welsh outfit can look forward to the 25-year-old continuing to star for them as they to hold on to their impressive early season form which currently sees them above Spurs on goal difference in 5th place.
