One of the best things about having a Korean international and the best player in Asia on your team is that they televise Tottenham Hotspur matches overseas. That means we get overseas commentary teams. And I’m pretty convinced that there aren’t any overseas commentary teams that are better than the ones in South Korea.
In case you missed it, Son Heung-Min scored an absolutely world-class goal today against the Blues, Tottenham’s third, and one that pretty much put the match to bed. It was a superb individual effort from the World Cup captain and Asian Games winner — he receives the ball at full sprint near the halfway line, takes off down the sideline, leaves Jorginho in the dust, jukes David Luiz, and calmly slots home past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
It’s worth watching. It’s even MORE worth watching with South Korean commentators calling the action.
That’s just pure, unbridled JOY. I don’t even care that I can’t understand what they’re saying.
Look, I’m not saying fire Arlo White, but if I’m in charge of NBC’s soccer division I’m on the phone right now with whoever those two are and hiring them to call every Tottenham match from now until the history of ever.
