Tottenham forward Heung Min Son has joined Cha Bum-Keun at the top of the all-time top goalscoring charts for South Korea players in Europe after netting a brace in Spurs’ 5-0 Champions League victory over Red Star Belgrade.

Son, who hadn’t scored since Tottenham’s 7-2 defeat to Bayern Munich earlier this month, notched twice in the first-half against the Serbian’s, to move himself alongside the former Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt striker on 121 goals scored in European club football by a South Korean player.

72 of those 121 goals have come in Tottenham colours, with the remaining 49 split between his two former Bundesliga sides – Bayer Leverkusen (29) and Hamburg (20).

The 27-year-old, who will make his 200th Spurs performance an Anfield on Saturday, took his tally for the season to five goals in 11 appearances – with all five coming at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Including the two he bagged against Manchester City in the Champions League and the first game against Crystal Palace, seven of his last nine have been scored in north London.
