Son Heung-min scores his 12th career UCL goal... setting a new Asian record Updated: 2019-04-18 19:10:11 KST

Epic is an understatement, to describe the second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal match up between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.
After scoring the lone goal in Tottenham's 1-nil win in the first leg, Son Heung-min didn't wait long to add more goals to his already impressive tally.
After Man City got on the scoreboard after just four minutes, the South Korean international answered back with goals in the 7th and 10th minutes, scoring a double in the first 10 minutes of the match.
The match ended with Manchester City winning 4-3, but a 4-4 aggregate with Tottenham scoring 3 big away goals, means the London club advance to the semi-finals.
Son, however, will not be able to play in the first leg of the semis,.. with a yellow in this match, the second he's accumulated in the quarter-finals.
Despite that, the double gave Son his 19th and 20th goals in all competition this season, but also his 12th career goal in Champions League play.
He surpasses Uzbekistani legend Maksim Shatskikh , who scored 11 career Champions League goals during his career.
Son scored his first ever Champions League goal back in 2014, while he was with Bayer Leverkusen in Germany's Bundesliga at the time.
Fast forward less than 5 years, he's now the top scoring Asian player in Champions League history.
