[뉴스토마토 박창욱 기자] The captain of the Korean national team, Son Heung-min (30. Tottenham Hotspur) scored a great free kick goal in the match against Costa Rica on the 23rd, and British local media are calling him to be a dedicated free kick kicker.
British Media The Athletic reported on the 28th (local time) that “Tottenham Hotspur are unable to solve the world’s easiest puzzle. We must leave the free-kick to Son Heung-min.”
The Athletic added, “Now Heung-Min Son has to raise his hand to take the free kick.”
According to reports, Tottenham have attempted 124 direct free kicks since 2017, but have only scored 4 goals. This is also the lowest position in the EPL. Kane is Tottenham’s free kick taker, and his success rate is not that high.
Another local media, Football London, said, “Heung-min Son gave the answer to coach Antonio Conte.” “Kane often has chances, but there is no free kick goal, and so is Dyer. Now Heung-min Son has to kick.”
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min scored his fourth free kick in an A match against Costa Rica. This is tied for 1st place with the ‘Left-footed Master’ Ha Seok-joo.
