‘Best friend’ Harry Kane (30, England), who received an assist from Son Heung-min (31), tied the record for the most goals for Tottenham.
Tottenham won 1-0 in an away game against Fulham in the English Premier League on the 24th. In the extra time of the first half, Son Heung-min dribbled and passed a pass to the center, and Kane shook the right corner of the net with a right-footed turning shot near the arc.
Kane set a tie record (266 goals) for the most goals for Tottenham, standing shoulder to shoulder with Jimmy Greaves (England), who played an active role in the 1960s. Kane scored his 266th goal in 412 matches in a Tottenham shirt since 2011. Kane scored 27 of them with the help of Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min and Kane increased their Premier League record for most joint goals to 44.
Kane, who insisted on participating despite the high fever, said, “I moved when I saw that Son Heung-min had a space.” 5th place Tottenham (11 wins, 3 draws, 7 losses, 36 points), who escaped from two consecutive losses, chased Manchester United in 4th place with a 3-point lead.
England’s Football London gave Son Heung-min the lowest rating among Tottenham starting players, saying, “He helped Kane’s historic goal, but had no impact.” Son Heung-min received a yellow card in the 28th minute of the first half for stepping on Kenny Tete (Fulham)’s ankle with his soccer boot while surrounded by four Fulham players. The Evening Standard pointed out that it was “lucky not to receive a red card” and Fulham manager Marco Silva said “I think the foul is more than a yellow card”.
Recently, in the UK, there is a claim that “Son Heung-min, who has fallen into goal silence, should be put on the bench.” This is because Son Heung-min, the top scorer last season, is only scoring 4 goals this season. Tottenham manager Antonio Conte made Son Heung-min the starter that day, but switched to Richarlison in the 31st minute of the second half. Son Heung-min failed to record a single shot on the day and was scoreless for four consecutive games. 스포츠토토
The Daily Mail said, “Son Heung-min shot 86 shots last season and scored 23 goals. The goal conversion rate was 26.7%, but this season it is only 8.2%.” Some say he doesn’t fit well with the aggressive wing-back Ivan Perisic, but his biggest problem is his lack of confidence.”
