Tottenham Hotspur forward Heung-min Son played an integral role for South Korea as they beat Sri Lanka 8-0.
The 27-year-old scored their first of the night with a shot from the edge of the box, assisted the second with a ball across the box for Shin-wook Kim, before getting the fifth of the game from the penalty spot, as shown on Spurs’ official Twitter page.
What is most impressive about this is that all of these contributions came in the first half:

Son was eventually taken off in the 62nd minute and replaced by Freiburg’s Chang-hoon Kwon, which will have come as a relief for many back in Tottenham, as it prevented the risk of any injuries late in the game.
It may have only come against Sri Lanka, but many Spurs fans were over the moon for their number 7 about his performance and result.
The hope now is that when he returns from international duty he will be able to help turn results around back in North London.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the performance, including posts from enthused Spurs fans, can be seen below:
