Son Heung-min, who led Tottenham Hotspur (England) to a resounding victory with one goal and two assists, earned a spot in the 'Team of the Week' selected by the British public broadcaster BBC.

Son Heung-min was named as a right-wing striker in the 3-4-3 formation in the 'Garth Crooks Team of the Week' for the 28th round of the 2023-2024 English Professional Football Premier League (EPL) announced by the BBC on the 12th (Korean time).

In the away game against Aston Villa held on the 10th, Son Heung-min scored 1 goal and 2 assists, contributing to Tottenham's 4-0 win. 카지노사이트탑

He assisted Brennan Johnson's additional goal to make it 2-0 during a counterattack in the 8th minute of the second half, and also scored a goal himself in extra time in the second half.

He scored his 14th goal of the season by hitting Dejan Kulusevski's low cross with his right foot after breaking down the right flank.

Then, about 4 minutes out of the 10 minutes of added time, he assisted Timo Werner's goal with a calm cutback from the left side of the penalty area, completely breaking Aston Villa's will to chase.

Son Heung-min, who reported the goal on this day, scored 159 goals for Tottenham and tied for 5th place in the club's career scoring list with Cliff Jones, a Welsh striker who played in the 1960s.

Son Heung-min, who added 3 attack points at once, raised his season attack points to 22 (14 goals, 8 assists).

Since the 2016-2017 season, he has surpassed 20 official game attack points for 8 consecutive seasons.

If limited to the EPL, more than 20 attack points were created in two years since the 2021-2022 season (23 goals, 9 assists).

Last season, he recorded 16 attack points with 10 goals and 6 assists in the league.

Soccer expert Crooks selected Son Heung-min for the Team of the Week and said, “One goal and two assists, that says it all.”

“Son Heung-min can score goals in counterattack situations or create scoring opportunities himself, but he can also be a ‘fox in the penalty box,’” he said.

“After being appointed captain, he is showing that he has transformed into a more ‘team player.’” He added.

The soccer term 'a fox in the box', commonly used in England and elsewhere, refers to a striker who frequently scores goals by displaying instantaneous wit in the penalty area.

Along with Son Heung-min, the best 11 attackers included Manchester United's Alejandro Garnacho and West Ham United's Danny Ings.

James Maddison (Tottenham), John Stones (Manchester City), Declan Rice (Arsenal), and Cole Palmer (Chelsea) were selected as midfielders, and Christian Romero (Tottenham), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), and Ben Dijk were selected as defenders. White (Arsenal) was selected.

The goalkeeper position went to Son Heung-min's teammate Guglielmo Vicario.
