Son's brilliant solo run began when he picked the ball up on the edge of his own penalty area. He ran 71.4 metres, evading a host of Burnley players, before finding the net in Tottenham Hotspur's 5-0 win last December.
Former Arsenal striker Wright, who was on the panel that helped select the winner, voted for Son and explained why the South Korean is one of a select number of players capable of scoring such a goal.

"Few players in the world could have picked the ball up on the edge of their own penalty area, beat half the opposition team and then finished as calmly and precisely as Son did," said Wright.
"He showed so much awareness, speed and skill to beat the Burnley midfield and defence. It's a goal fit to win the award."
