Spurs fans are demanding that Son Heung-min take over standard duties from club-mate Harry Kane

Spurs fans heaped praise on Son Heung-min after he continued his impressive return to form by scoring a scintillating free-kick and handing South Korea a late draw against their World Cup qualifiers Costa Rica.

Wolves striker Hwang Hee-chan put the 2002 World Cup semi-finalists ahead at the Deokyang Eoulim Nuri Stadium before Costa Rica struck back twice and seemed poised to defend the win as the game went into the finals.

However, after South Korea were awarded a free kick, Son leveled the game by smashing his set piece into the top corner to avoid defeat in the team’s penultimate friendly before the tournament in Qatar.

After Son’s sensational set piece, Spurs fans took to Twitter to ask why the striker wasn’t handed free-kicks at club level:

One user wondered why Harry Kane is still Tottenham’s free-kick taker: “If Kane ever takes a free-kick for Spurs again I want his contract voided.”

Another added: “How many free kicks does he have to take for his country before Spurs allow him to do it for them? I love Kane, but he needs to step aside here.

Another user wrote: “Son Heung-min just scored another world class free kick. That’s 3 direct free-kick goals from him in the last few months for Korea. Tottenham need a direct free-kick taker who can score, don’t they?’

@sonslashthfc added: “Son Heung Min has scored a free-kick goal in his last three games for South Korea and all of those games have a different style. Oh my god, what a player.’

The goal marks the continuation of the twist of fate for the Tottenham star.

After a career-best return of 23 league goals last season, Son has been criticized after enduring a difficult start to the current campaign, which saw him fail to score in his first six Premier League games.

Son’s poor form saw Antonio Conte bench the former Bayer Leverkusen striker for Spurs’ game against Leicester.

The 30-year-old, who came on as a second-half substitute, would put an end to any worries about his form with a fantastic 14-minute hat-trick to secure victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
