Tottenham fans react as Son Heung-min wins FIFA Puskas Award 2020
Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min has won the 2020 FIFA Puskas Award for the Goal of the Year for his solo strike against Burnley.
The strike in question came in our 5-0 win over the Clarets back in December last year.
It was a moment of magic that will remain long-etched in the memories of the fans. The 28-year-old picked up the ball on the edge of our box and then went on a slaloming run. He left six Burnley players tattering in his wake, before calmly slotting the ball past Nick Pope in the goal.
In the process, Sonny had covered a total of 71.4 metres, in just 11 seconds before making the Clarets’ net bulge. It was the second-longest distance travelled by a player to score a goal in a PL match, behind Andros Townsend for Crystal Palace in 2016/17.
Son’s strike had been named the Premier League 2019/20 Goal of the Season. It was also picked as the BBC Match of the Day’s Goal of the Season as well the club’s Goal of the Season for the 2019/20 campaign. Sonny’s goal against Burnley had also been named as our ‘Goal of the Decade’ for 2010-2019. And now, he also has won the prestigious Puskas Award.
So proud to have Sonny play for our beloved Spurs. Great footballer, great and humble guy, so much deserved this award with his amazing goal. Well done Sonny. #COYS
