After 12 touches in 12 seconds and crossing more than 70 meters, the South Korean striker for Tottenham Hotspur Sun Hyung Min scored what might be the most beautiful goal in the English Premier League this season.
Sun scored the goal in the 32nd minute after a one-on-one effort, completely capturing the spotlight from team-mate Harry Kane during the 5-0 victory over Burnley, and was impressed by his teammates and coach.
Sun took possession of the ball at his penalty area, the best Asian player went off the continent and dodged two competitors, then passed two additional attempts to cut the ball in the middle of the field, before he outperformed in a speed race over two others and scored the third goal for Tottenham.
But Sun, who is known for his humility, said he continued to run with the ball, because he failed to pass the ball to teammate Daily Alli.
"When I got the ball I tried to pass to Dili but I couldn't find it, so I continued to advance, I'm happy to score this goal," Sun said.
Keane admitted that Sun deserved to grab the spotlight after this amazing goal, and said, "Sun grabbed the spotlight, this is an incredible goal from a spectacular counterattack."
"All he needs to do is work hard and work for the team. He has great potential and works hard for the team."
Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho compared Son's goal to another goal scored by Brazilian Ronaldo with Barcelona. "I remember when I was in Barcelona with (coach Bobby) Robson and Ronaldo scored a goal similar to the goal of Son," he said.
He added, "This is an amazing goal. I knew that he would reach even the goalkeeper while he was controlling the ball in an unstoppable way. The goalkeeper is good but he still managed to put the ball brilliantly."
"Sun has scored one of the best goals from a solo effort that is hard to repeat, that's my goal of the season," former Spurs striker Gary Lineker wrote on Twitter.
