Son Heung-Min's Goalscoring Record Proves He Hasn't Got A Weak Foot

Tottenhan forward Son Heung Min has proven time and time again this season that he can provide his team with goals, goals and more goals.

It has been an incredible campaign for the South Korean forward, who has often stepped up when teammate Harry Kane has been ruled out through injury.

He's bagged 20 goals in all competitions, and is just one goal away from equalling his best ever goal scoring season, a tally of 21 goals set in the 2016/17 campaign.

His decisiveness in front of goal proved vital again on Wednesday night, when he bagged twice in the opening ten minutes to help his side progress into the Champions League semi-finals.

And an incredible stat emerged afterwards.

We can confirm that Son has no weak foot.

Let me explain. In the 20 goals he's scored this season, the 26-year-old has scored five at home with his left foot and five at home with his right foot.

But that's just the begginning. Heung-Min has also scored five away goals with his left foot and five away goals with his right foot. Mind-blowing.

Not only is he a great goalscorer, but he is hugely popular among many football fans.

In fact, Son has beaten the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel in a FIFPlay poll for the next cover star of FIFA 2020.

The Spurs star finished with 17 per cent of the vote and 203,974 votes in his favour, while the Juventus forward also hit 17 per cent of the vote but fell short at 202,691.

In third place is Lionel Messi with 192,390 votes, with his former Barcelona teammate Neymar, who has graced the Champions Edition this year, is in fourth after accruing 180,740 votes.
