Son Heung-min, who was guarding the bench in the home game against Austria's Rask, which was one number below one, was substituted for Gareth Bale in the second half 17 minutes ahead of 2-0 and actively aimed for the goal.

The first shot hit the opposing goalkeeper's hand and crossed the crossbar, but the opportunity came in the 39th minute of the second half.

Exquisitely through the offside trap, he finished with his left foot calmly and shook the net for 3 consecutive games after returning to injury.

Son Heung-min continued the rise of 9 goals in eight games of the season, leading Tottenham's first match in Europa League to a 3-0 win.

The British BBC attracted attention by highlighting the soaring value of Son Heung-min, while the local media in the UK continued to praise it.

In a special article entitled "Why is Son Heung-min so important to Tottenham?", the BBC analyzed Sohn Heung-min's rapid growth with various statistics.

Heung-min Son's contribution to victory this season is higher than that of Lionel Messi of Barcelona last season, citing artificial intelligence analysis indicators from US data companies, and said that Son Heung-min's player ranking jumped from 137th in the world to 25th when joining Tottenham.

The ransom price also doubled in three years at 111.8 billion won, adding that it is natural for Tottenham to rush to renew the contract with Son Heung-min.
