Son Heung-Min is on absolute fire at the moment.

The Tottenham ace has been a total revelation in the Premier League this season, scoring four goals at an impressive rate of one every 90 minutes.

His form has meant the absence of Harry Kane has barely been felt at White Hart Lane and the 2-0 win over Manchester City last weekend sent a very clear statement to the rest of their title rivals.

And Son's season has got even better by playing a key role for his country in the latest set of World Cup qualifiers.

South Korea were up against Qatar, who started the day rock bottom of Group A in the Asian section of qualification, but were surprisingly 2-1 behind at half-time.

Son had already played a hand in setting up Swansea's Sung-Yeung Ki for the game's opening goal and came to the fore once again after the interval.

Dong-won Ji had equalised for South Korea in the 56th minute but Son ensured it was a double blow for the 2022 World Cup hosts by finding the back of the net again less than 120 seconds later.

You can watch the goal in the video below, as the 24-year-old found himself with time and space in the box to bend a shot past Saad Al Sheeb in the Qatari goal.

With the crowd at the Suwon World Cup Stadium elated, Son even brought part of the English game to his home country by performing a celebration more commonly seen in the Premier League.

Paul Pogba's trademark 'dab' celebration has only been seen once in a Manchester United shirt so far this season but it was a popular craze replicated up and down country even before the midfielder completed his world record move to Old Trafford.

Son, clearly delighted with his effort on Thursday, strutted his stuff with a dab of his own.

He didn't have the benefit of Jesse Lingard by his side to make it part of a slick handshake but he still able to style it out pretty well.

That was Son's fourth goal from as many matches for club and country and the result leaves South Korea in pole position to qualify from Group A.
