Son Heung-Min netted a treble for South Korea in a World Cup qualifier against Laos in Hwaseong.

Tottenham Hotspur may have missed out on the signing of Saido Berahino, but if Son Heung-Min’s form for South Korea is anything to go by, the Lilywhites have signed a more than capable goalscorer.

The 23-year-old was the star of the show for the national team this week as lowly Laos were swept away in an 8-0 win at Hwaseong.

Signed by Spurs for £22 million from Bayer Leverkusen, as reported by the Guardian, the former Bundesliga star netted a memorable hat-trick in an all-action display for South Korea.

Son scored his first goal after 17 minutes with a carefully placed finish from a cut-back cross.

The second came in the 74th minute with a shot from a tight angle before the treble was completed in the dying minutes of the game after an excellent run and finish from the Asian star.

It marks the second consecutive game in which Son has scored for South Korea, with the 23-year-old boasting 14 goals in 45 international appearances to date.

Part of the squad that reached the final of the Asian Cup in 2015, Son scored three goals at the tournament in Australia, including a decisive brace in the quarter-final win over Uzbekistan.
