Tottenham forward Heung-min Son scored a second free-kick in a matter of days for South Korea as they fought back to draw 2-2 with Paraguay in a friendly on Friday. 

The 29-year-old enjoyed a fine campaign for Spurs in which he won the Premier League Golden Boot with 23 goals alongside Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah. 

Son has since managed to continue his rich vein of form onto the international stage for South Korea and netted a last-minute free-kick to seal a 2-0 win over Chile earlier this week. 

And in his latest outing against Paraguay, Son scored yet another set-piece from the edge of the box to hand the Taegeuk Warriors a lifeline in the second half while they were trailing. 

South Korea fell behind after Newcastle’s Miguel Almiron scored twice, but managed to equalise against their South American opposition courtesy of Woo-Young Jung’s leveller deep into stoppage-time. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Son is really putting his name in the hat to become Tottenham’s main free-kick taker next season as they currently don’t have too many options. 

Unless they bring in a specialist set-piece expert this summer, there is little reason why he shouldn’t take them considering he also takes the team’s corners.
