The image of Son Heung-min we knew was displayed after a long time.
Tottenham Hotspur defeated Preston 3-0 in the 2022-23 season England FA Cup 4th Round (Round of 32) held at Deepdale in Preston, England at 3:00 am (Korean time) on the 29th. With this win, Tottenham advanced to the round of 16.
Son Heung-min, who was criticized for his sluggish performance this season, relieved the burden on his mind. In a match where Harry Kane took a break, Son Heung-min, who came out as a striker, scored two goals and was responsible for the team’s victory. 먹튀검증
According to football statistics media ‘Squawka’, Son Heung-min made all four shots on target in this game. Son Heung-min is originally a world-class player in terms of kicking power. However, as he continued to miss scoring opportunities this season, his confidence in his kicking power seemed to be waning. If he was like before, he often had chances that he could handle easily, but he could not properly take the shooting impact.
However, in this match, his kicking power has definitely recovered. The kick sensation, which was unusual from the first half, was properly demonstrated in the first goal scene in the 5th minute of the second half. It was a long distance, but Son Heung-min’s high-accuracy left foot created a fantastic shot.
Son Heung-min, who found confidence, scored multiple goals in the 24th minute of the second half. This was also excellent. Ivan Perisic’s sensuous pass was good, but Son Heung-min’s movement, which completely melted the defender with his first touch, was even better. Son Heung-min created a shooting space with a turning action and created a better scoring situation to make it 2-0.
The expected goal value recorded in two scoring situations was only 0.18 goals. The expected goal value is the probability that a shooting opportunity will result in a goal. Son Heung-min’s shooting situation was a scene where it was difficult to score in terms of the expected score. However, Son Heung-min scored two goals in a difficult situation.
Son Heung-min showed better numbers than expected every time, but this season, there were many cases where he did not. If he has definitely regained his confidence through this game, we can expect to see Son Heung-min’s appearance as the top scorer once again.
