Manchester: Korea Republic international Son Heung-min has made UEFA Champion League scoring history as he helped send Tottenham Hotspur into the semi-finals of the top European club competition on Wednesday.
Son grabbed a brace within the first 10 minutes against Manchester City in Spurs' thrilling 4-3 loss in the second leg of the quarter-finals at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England. Tottenham, having taken the first leg 1-0 at home, still knocked off Man City on away goals in a 4-4 aggregate score and will face Ajax in the semi-finals.
With 12 career goals in the UEFA Champion League, Son is now the top Asian scorer in the tournament history, moving past former Dynamo Kyiv star Maksim Shatskikh of Uzbekistan. Son also scored the lone goal in the first leg victory over Man City.
Son has bagged 20 goals in all competitions this season, just one shy of a career high from the 2016-2017 season.
