Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur was the star of the show as South Korea defeated Cameroon 1-0 in an international friendly.
Son scored a late free-kick to earn the South Koreans a 2-2 draw against Costa Rica earlier this month in another friendly game for the South Koreans. He has now demonstrated his aerial prowess with a goal against the Cameroonians.
Left-back Kim Jin-su broke down the left flank, and his cross was saved by goalkeeper Andre Onana but parried right into Son’s path. Unmarked, the Spurs striker hit a brilliant header past Onana.
This concludes our brilliant 30-year-old superstar’s international break, who is arguably at the pinnacle of his powers. It took him a while to get going and score his first goal of the season, but when he did, in the 6-2 victory over Leicester City, he scored a stunning hattrick, including two of the most beautiful goals one could hope for. He followed that up with a gorgeous free-kick against Costa Rica and another goal today.
He seems to be back to his best and just in time ahead of the crunch game against arch-rivals and league leaders Arsenal where a win would take them to the top of the table.
