Heung-min Son let his football do the talking in South Korea’s recent friendly with Chile on Tuesday with an incredible nutmeg
The match itself has been at the centre of controversy of late following a “racist gesture” made by Chile’s Diego Valdes.
The 24-year-old midfielder, who plays for Mexican club Morelia, was made to issue a public apology after a photo of him emerged on the internet producing a stereotypical eye signal.
But Valdes was made to properly pay for his misconduct against South Korea on Tuesday when Son produced an incredible piece of skill to backheel the ball through his legs and leave him in the shadows.
While the game remained goalless, Valdes will want to forget about this one as quickly as possible.
Meanwhile, Son will now finally return to Tottenham after helping South Korea win the Asian Games.
It means that he will now be exempt from military duty and can continue with his football as he pleases.
With Champions League clashes against Inter Milan and Barcelona coming up, Son can’t wait to get back to action for Spurs.
“This is just the beginning,” he told Evening Standard.
“I miss my team. I am happy to be back playing in the Premier League and Champions League. Over the summer, I think I’ve learned a great deal about football.”
