“Son Heung-min Zone” that made GK cry…The reason why the Korean ace was able to achieve the feat of scoring 100 points in the Premier League for the first time in Asia
Korea national team FW Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham) has scored 100 goals in the English Premier League, and the "Son Heung-min zone" is attracting attention again.
This refers to the left and right corners of the penalty box, and Son Heung-min, who can handle both feet freely, shoots around this area and often scores goals.
The goal he scored in the Premier League Round 30 match against Brighton on April 8 was also born from the “Son Heung-Min Zone”.
At that time, when Son Heung-min received a pass from Croatia representative MF Ivan Perisic (34) on the left side of the enemy team, he cut into the center from the left outside the penalty box and pierced the goal net with a shot wrapped with his right foot. It was Son Heung-min's 100th Premier League goal.
"Deadly Shot" prepared by his father
'Son Heung-min Zone' is a shooting course that has been thoroughly practiced by Son Heung-min's soccer teacher and real father Son Eun-jung.
Son Heung-min is known for his high-impact shots as well as his speed, but Son Eun-jung made his son thoroughly learn the basic skills first, and started shooting in earnest when he was a high school student.
Many people think that it is important to practice shooting from an early age. However, Son Eun-jung played many games from a young age and after being overworked, he injured his knee and has seen the appearance of a promising player who is struggling in the top team.
Therefore, he decided that Son Heung-min should be given step-by-step shooting practice from high school.
Son Heung-min started shooting in the "Son Heung-min Zone" at the age of 18. He had just made his first-team debut for Hamburger SV in the German Bundesliga.
