Aston Villa wing-back Leandro Bacuna has played down his free-kick heroics.

The Dutchman is gaining a reputation after scoring a stunner in victory over Cardiff City.

"No, I’m not like Beckham,” he said. “If you practice then you will take the kicks in your own way.

“If you want to score and you’re hungry to score then it will turn over to you.

“It doesn’t matter how long we hadn’t scored, we are doing well at the moment. We hadn’t been scoring, but you just keep going and things will go your way.

“If you create chances that’s good and you need to finish them off."
