Tottenham star Son Heung-min scores wonderful free-kick goal for South Korea vs Costa Rica

Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min scored a perfectly taken free-kick goal for South Korea in their international friendly against Costa Rica earlier today (September 23).

Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Hwang Hee-chan opened the scoring on the day just before the half-hour mark. However, the away side scored two goals in succession courtesy of Sunderland winger Jewison Bennette.

The Costa Ricans were then reduced to 10 men with just 10 minutes to go on the clock. South Korea were awarded a free-kick just at the edge of the box, with Son dispatched with calmness and composure in the 86th minute.

He went for the side not covered by the wall while the substitute goalkeeper, Patrick Sequeira, stood stranded in goal. The video of the goal can be seen in the Tweet above.

Son is South Korea’s great hope going into the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The 30-year-old is still in the prime of his career and with 100 senior caps, he is a living, breathing legend for his country.

He is also their captain and perhaps their most famous athlete globally. While there is no sure way to measure that popularity, one can gauge the idea of his impact by the fact that Spurs planned a pre-season trip to his home country this summer.

His country is set to play another friendly later this month when they take on Cameroon at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 27th of September. Hopefully, Son comes back unscathed from international duty.

When he returns, he would fancy his chances to start against Arsenal in the north London derby on October 1. He was benched by manager Antonio Conte for the first time this season against Leicester City in the last game before the international break.

He, however, responded to that in style, and came off the bench to score a hat-trick in a 6-2 win against the Foxes.
