Watch: Tottenham’s Son Heung-Min Continues Rampant Goalscoring Form With South Korea Winner

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min’s fantastic run of form continues on international duty with South Korea.

Since breaking into the Spurs starting lineup last month, the 24-year-old has been in rampant form, scoring five goals in six games and cementing his place as a starter in the absence of Harry Kane (and probably beyond).

He was in action on Thursday for South Korea, playing in a World Cup qualifier at home to 2022 hosts Qatar.

The away side had gone into the half time break leading 2-1, having overturned Ki Sung-Yeung’s opener. However, with the hour mark approaching, former Sunderland and Dortmund striker Dong-Won Ji levelled the score, before Son pounced just two minutes later and executed a fine finish to complete a well-worked team move (although that celebration definitely needs work).

South Korea went on to win the match 3-2, leaving them level with Iran at the top of AFC Group A with seven points after three games.

Son endured a problematic first season at White Hart Lane following a £22m move from Leverkusen in 2015, and had to be talked out of pushing for a summer move back to the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg over the summer.

His decision to stay has been fully vindicated since, as his performances have led to a nomination (and probable victory) for Premier League Player of the Month for September.
