The 120th Goal in the 300th EPL game is a ‘great record’… ‘Son Heung-min’ couldn’t smile

Set a record in the Liverpool match… tied for 22nd in total goals for the first time for a Chinese player, along with Gerrard, Tottenham lost 2-4… unlikely chance of going to UCL

Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham Hotspur), a goal scorer representing Korean soccer, scored his 120th goal in his 300th match in the English professional soccer Premier League (EPL).

Its Son Heung-min started in the away game against Liverpool in the 36th round of the 2023-2024 EPL season held at Anfield in Liverpool, England on the 6th (Korean time) and opened the goal in the 32nd minute of the second half when the team was trailing 1-4.

Son Heung-min, who received a pass from Richarlison (Brazil) in front of the goal, shook the net with a right-footed shot, scoring his 17th goal in the league this season and 120th goal in his EPL career. 카지노

Son Heung-min achieved his dream of advancing to the English stage by leaving Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga and transferring to Tottenham in August 2015.

Heung-min Son, who made his EPL debut by starting against Sunderland in September of that year, performed somewhat poorly in his first season, but has since grown into a leading striker for Tottenham and the EPL.

In the 2021-2022 season, he was tied as the top scorer with Muhammad Salah (Liverpool) with 23 goals and even earned the title of ‘World Class’.

Son Heung-min, who has played at least 30 league games every season except his debut season (28 games), achieved the feat of 300 appearances in just his ninth season.

This is a record, the first for an Asian player and the 150th in EPL history.

Among players currently playing in the EPL, he is the 12th player to reach 300 games.

Son Heung-min, who scored his 120th goal in his 300th game, moved up to tied for 22nd on the EPL all-time scoring list.

Standing on par with Liverpool’s ‘legend’ Steven Gerrard (England, retired), he also set a record of scoring in five consecutive games against Liverpool.

However, as the team lost 2-4 that day, both the 300th game and the 120th goal faded.

Tottenham (60 points), mired in four consecutive losses at the end of the season, was unable to narrow the gap with fourth-place Aston Villa (67 points).

As a result, Tottenham’s chances of advancing to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season have virtually disappeared.

Tottenham, who has played one game less, must win all three remaining games and Villa must lose all two games to qualify for the UCL, which is awarded up to fourth place.
