Son Heung Min scored a wonder goal as Tottenham Hotspurs beat Burnley 5-0 in the Premier League match on Saturday. Collecting the ball just outside his own penalty box, Son dribbled his way past the entire Burnley team for 80 yards in a heart-stopping 12 seconds before scoring.

“One of the greatest individual goals you’re ever likely to see. Goal of the season, me thinks,” was the verdict on the Son goal by former England striker Gary Lineker. Lineker was not the only one though, with the goal having become a social media sensation.
Wow. Son has just scored one of the greatest individual goals you’re ever likely to see. Goal of the season, me thinks.
