Have you recovered from Son Heung-Min’s Puskas-worthy goal against Burnley yet? I haven’t. That was not only the best goal I’ve ever seen from Sonny in a Tottenham shirt, it ranks up there with one of the best ever goals I’ve seen from Tottenham Hotspur since I’ve been a fan.
80 90 yards in 12 seconds, dribbling through virtually the entire Burnley team. Amazing.
After the match, Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho talked about how his son has been referring to Sonny to legendary Brazilian striker Ronaldo Nazário, one of the best Brazilian footballers of all time and known for his incredible ability to dribble at full speed.
“Even before this goal my son calls him Sonaldo, and today he was Sonaldo Nazário. The only thing that came to my mind was a goal where I had the honour to be sat next to Sir Bobby Robson, in 1996, and Ronaldo Nazario scored a goal against Compostela from behind the halfway line and scored a very similar goal.”
If you’re curious, here’s Ronaldo’s goal. I think Sonny’s is better, but I’m biased.
We’ve teamed up with BreakingT again to commemorate this occasion with another Tottenham-related t-shirt that you can now own. Use the referral link below when you order and Carty Free gets a small commission from every sale. And just like the Miracle of Amsterdam shirts (which you can still buy!), all of our proceeds are being donated to charity. International shipping is available. Sizes from S to 3XL.
Update: We got something really important wrong on this shirt, and so we feel compelled to issue an apology and update the design. See, Sonny didn’t run 80 yards, he ran over 80 meters. And if you convert that to imperial units, that’s actually 90 yards. We’ve changed the shirts and we hope you understand.
Also, BreakingT is offering hoodies now. You’re welcome.
Son Heung-Min isn’t Ronaldo Nazário, but darned if he can’t score like him!
Cartilage Free Captain receives a referral bonus for every shirt sold. All of Carty Free’s proceeds from referrals will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, a charitable organization that supports homeless LGBTQIA youth in New York City.
