Tottenham Hotspurs forward Son Heung-min is one of the best around at running with the soccer ball at speed, before unleashing a strike! Here are some tips and tricks, plus a wicked drill to master shooting at speed like the South Korean superstar! And don’t forget, that final strike doesn’t have to always be hit with power, sometimes it’s better to stay calm and slot or pass the ball past the keeper.
Son Heung-min said this about his time playing in Germany, which wasn’t easy for him since he didn’t speak German and had just left South Korea at such a young age: “When I was at Hamburg, 17 or 18, Ruud van Nistelrooy signed and he helped me a lot. He saw my first training session and he talked to me. He told me I was a good player. He gave me confidence and I want to thank him for that. We had a really good team and were successful for a time with him.”
Of course, don’t forget Son Heung-min’s goal of the month in the English Premier League: Son Heung-min’s Dribbling Length of Field Goal. This was a Messi like dribbling run.
