Tottenham Hotspur star Heung-Min Son starred in a totally one sided game for South Korea.

Son netted a brace in an 8-0 victory for South Korea over Sri Lanka.

He scored the opening goal in the World Cup qualifying tie, before netting a penalty just before half-time.

 

Son also picked up a booking in the game and was substituted after 62 minutes with South Korea already 6-0 up.

The Tottenham star now has 24 international goals for his country, three of which have come in World Cup tournaments in 2014 and 2018.

South Korea have a more testing tie up next, away at North Korea.

Son's substitution was likely to save him for that, coming just a minute after he was booked.

The two Korea nations both sit top of the second round qualifying group with maximum points from two games each. 

South Korea then face Lebanon in the qualifiers in November.

Tottenham hope Son will return fit to return to face Watford next weekend.
