This Son Heung-Min solo goal is the best thing you’ll see this weekend

Lionel who? Diego who? There’s only one Son Heung-Min and we’re so thankful for him. The South Korean superstar scored one of the goals of the season in Spurs absolute domination of Burnley in the first half of their league match on Saturday. A coast-to-coast goal that would make Messi himself jealous.

Is it too late for a Ballon d’Or recount or something? We’ve seen Son score some unbelievable goals in the past, but this one has to take the cake, right? We all know how talented and dynamic he is, but this one was something truly special.

And if you liked that highlight, here’s the same highlight, but with Korean commentary. You should watch it again, it’s even better.

He literally picked the ball up at the top of his own box, dribbled past 175 defenders all nipping at his heels, and kept his composure to finish off the exhilarating move with a great finish. Give him the Ballon d’Or, the Puskas, and every damn award on the planet. What a player.
