Son Heung-min’s’Tottenham No. 100′ was defeated due to an unrequited decision.
Son Heung-min shook the opponent’s net in the 31st minute after being put into the second half of the 2020-21 League Cup (Carabao Cup) quarterfinal against Stoke City held at the Bet 365 Stadium in Stoke on Trent, England on the 24th (Korean time), but scored as an offside decision. This was not admitted.
Son Heung-min, who scored 99 goals by scoring Tottenham’s equalizer in the 13th round (1-2 loss) of the Premier League against Liverpool on the 21st, challenged the 100th goal after a week, but video reading (VAR) was not allowed due to the referee’s return. I couldn’t achieve my intentions because of the bad news.
Tottenham started a partial rotation with Son Heung-min on the bench. He put Harry Kane in the forefront, with Lucas Mora and Garus Veil on both wings.
Tottenham took the lead with Bale’s header in the 22nd minute. However, when there were no additional goals, Son Heung-min was chosen as the replacement card for the second half. In the 8th minute of the second half, he equalized Jordan Thompson, but 17 minutes later, Ben Davis’ mid-range goal went ahead.
Then, Son Heung-min’s’Stolen Goal 100′ was directed. Kane cut off the opponent’s pass and stabbed him at Son Heung-min on the left. After receiving the ball, Son Heung-min digs into the left side of the penalty area and sees a gap where the opposing goalkeeper jumped forward and kicked it with his right foot.
However, the flag of the line referee was raised to announce the offside. When he received Kane’s pass, it was judged that Son Heung-min’s position was ahead of the defender, but on the screen there was one opponent on the other side of Son Heung-min.
In the Carabao Cup, VAR is only enforced after the quarter-finals. Son Heung-min strongly protested, but the decision was not overturned. Tottenham won 3-1 with Kane’s key goal in the 36th minute of the second half.
After the game, coach Jose Mourinho said, “If there was a VAR, Son Heung-min’s goal would have been recognized as a goal.”
British public broadcaster BBC said, “Son Heung-min scored lightly, but the assistant referee declared offside.” “It was a situation that needed a more certain decision, but the VAR was not implemented.
Football London, a professional football media in England, also said, “Son Heung-min’s goal was canceled offside. “The unbelievably unfortunate result.”
The British Guardian is releasing the list of’Best Players of 2020′ selected by 241 experts from 71 countries in order from the 100th place on the 22nd (Korean time). Son Heung-min is ranked 22nd among the 40th to 11th places released on the 24th. Raised.
Although the ranking was three places lower than last year, which was 19th, Son Heung-min is the only Asian player out of the 90 players released so far. In addition, Son Heung-min was selected as the’Top 100′ for 3 consecutive years since 2018 (78th).
The Guardian said, “Son Heung-min has received 208 support. His fast speed and ruthless determination make us look forward to tomorrow. He added that he is heading for the most individual scoring in a season.”
