“This is a world class touch!” Legend tribute to SON, the king is back

“The first touch was world class.”

Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), the ‘EPL scorer’ we used to know, is back. Irish soccer legend Robbie Keane (43) also praised Son Heung-min.

Tottenham won 2-0 in the 24th round home game against West Ham in the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 20th (Korean time).

Son Heung-min, who started the game on the bench, was replaced by Richarlison in the 23rd minute of the second half. He then scored a key goal in the 27th minute of the second half when the team was leading 1-0.

Above all, the first touch was excellent. ‘Best friend’ Harry Kane connected a right-footed pass to Son Heung-min, who penetrated after competing for the ball in the midfield area. 메이저놀이터

At this time, Son Heung-min exquisitely succeeded in the first touch with the outside of his right foot. At the same time as the sensuous touch, the ball rolled in a good way to hit the shot in front of him. He then calmly finished with a right-footed shot from the penalty area. It was Son Heung-min’s 5th goal in the league.

Son Heung-min’s finishing ability was good, but above all, the goal was possible because he had a simple and perfect first touch.

According to the Daily Mail, a British media outlet, Robbie Keane paid attention to Son Heung-min’s first touch more than any other scene. Keane said of Son Heung-min, “I think he is always starving for his efforts. In fact, his lack of confidence has been his problem.”

Then, regarding the scoring scene, he praised Son Heung-min’s sense, saying, “Kane did very well. It was a pass made for Son Heung-min.”

At the same time, Keane praised him, saying, “Kane was really good at passing. And Son Heung-min’s first touch was world class. (This is a world class touch) This is what Son Heung-min looked like last season (EPL scorer).”

Also, Kean raised his thumb for Son Heung-min’s attitude. He said, “Attack players can always lack confidence. Sometimes it’s good to be left off the starting list when conditions are not good.” “Some people don’t like being on the bench, but Son Heung-min doesn’t. You may have a big desire.” He looked at it positively.
