Son's solo strike voted December 2019 Budweiser Goal of Month

10 Jan 2020

Spurs winger's surging run and finish against Burnley tops shortlist of eight stunning efforts scored in December 2019

Son Heung-min's incredible solo strike for Tottenham Hotspur against Burnley has been voted the Budweiser Goal of the Month for December.

The South Korean picked the ball up on the edge of his own box, ran away from two players and skipped past two challenges before slotting beyond Nick Pope

Son dribbled 71.4 metres in only 11 seconds with a goal he described as "unbelievable".

"It's a big honour for me especially with this special goal," he said. 

"As soon as I got the ball, I tried to find a pass and I was a bit lucky, I dribbled into the space where no-one was.

"I tried to finish it well because the action before was really quick. I was really focused on my finishing - it was an amazing feeling."

Repeat winner

The 27-year-old wins the award for a second time, after his November 2018 accolade for a similar run and finish against Chelsea.

He is only the fourth player since the prize was introduced in 2016/17 to win on two occasions, after Pedro, Andros Townsend and Eden Hazard.

Son was chosen by a panel of experts combined with a public vote, beating seven other contenders.
