Spurs star Son hails Obiang´s West Ham stunner
Son Heung-min conceded goal of the night to Pedro Obiang after the 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.
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 Adrian 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.
Son was not so inclined to bask in his own effort after the result left Tottenham three points shy of the Champions League places.
