Son Heung-min's "wonder goal" against Burnley has been voted as the Goal of the Year by sports website the Athletic.
In the 31st minute of the match on December 8th, Tottenham Hotspur's South Korean winger Son Heung-min picked the ball up on the edge of his own side's penalty area.
Twelve seconds and twelve touches later,he slammed the ball into the back of the net to put his team 3-nil up after dribbling a remarkable 70 meters, all while shredding almost the entirety of Burnley's defense.
And this week, Son's estimated market value exceeded that of world-famous football star Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to the global player market values on transfermarkt.com,Son's estimated market value was 20 times less than Ronaldo's in 2012.
But Son's latest estimate came in at 64 million euros,…or 69.three million U.S. dollars.
On the other hand, Ronaldo -- now 35 and eight years older than Son -- was valued at 60 million euros.
Son's value is the highest among all Asian players and 41st in the world.
With the English Premier League on hold amid the coronavirus pandemic, Son has been serving his mandatory basic military training at a Marine Corps camp on South Korea's southern island of Jeju since April 20th.
