Spurs star Son hails Obiang's West Ham stunner
Pedro Obiang and Son Heung-min traded incredible goals at Wembley and Tottenham's South Korean star lauded the West Ham man's strike.
Son Heung-min conceded that the goal of the night must go to Pedro Obiang after both players contributed outstanding long-range strikes to the 1-1 draw between Tottenham and West Ham at Wembley. Spurs dominated for long periods against a deep-lying West Ham, who did not have a shot of any description until the 70th minute. It proved to be worth the wait as defensive midfielder Obiang edged infield and clattered an unstoppable effort into the top corner from 30 yards.
Kane returns for Spurs
Tottenham had Harry Kane back in their starting line-up following illness but looked set to be frustrated in their quest for a goal until six minutes from time. Son stepped up to lash a powerful, swerving strike beyond Adrián from similar range to Obiang's earlier stunner to ensure the points were shared.
"We have the best keeper in the world and he can't do anything," Son said afterwards. The Korean hwoever was not so inclined to bask in his own effort after the result left Tottenham three points adrift of the Champions League places.
