TOTTENHAM fans want Son Heung-min to replace Harry Kane on free-kicks after his latest incredible goal for South Korea.
The 30-year-old forward had a difficult start to the season under Antonio Conte.
Despite winning the Premier League Golden Boot last season, he failed to find the net in the first eight games of the season for Spurs.
That led to him being dropped by Conte for last week’s clash with Leicester.
However, Son made an incredible recovery from that setback.
He came off the bench after an hour but the star fired off an incredible hat-trick to lead Spurs to a 6-2 win over the Foxes.
Now he has continued that stunning form by saving his country late today.
South Korea were 2-1 behind Costa Rica in a friendly when they were awarded a free kick four minutes from time.
Son stepped up to take it and he duly whipped in a stunning shot that left the keeper no chance of getting straight to the top corner to hand his side a tie.
Incredibly, it was the striker’s third free-kick goal for South Korea in his last four games.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON SOCCER
And when footage of his latest brilliant performance, which was his 34th on the international stage, went viral, Spurs fans were quick to call for him to be handed standard responsibility at club level.
“Get this man on our free kicks,” demanded one on Twitter.
Another tweeted: “Much better free kick kicker than Kane.”
Another fan commented: “Considering Sonny is so much better than Kane scoring outside the box why is Kane the standard on free kicks?”
While another Spurs supporter said: “I don’t know why we’re letting Kane take her.”
Son will look to add another to his collection when South Korea meets Cameroon in another friendly on Tuesday.
