Son Heung-min Breaks Korean Goal-Scoring Record in Europe

Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur scored two goals in a home match against Leicester City in London on Sunday.

With the Spurs leading 1-0 thanks to Harry Kane’s opening goal in the 22nd minute, which Son assisted, the Korean striker sealed the team’s 3-1 victory with two additional goals in the 60th and 79th minutes.

They were his 18th and 19th goals of the season, setting a new record for the most goals by a Korean player in a season in a European league and breaking the previous record held by Cha Bum-kun, who scored 17 goals for Bayer Leverkusen during the 1985-86 Bundesliga season.
