    Son Heung-min scored a double in Tottenham Hotspur's first pre-season game on Sunday.

    Spurs completed a 3-0 victory over Ipswich Town from League One, the third tier of the English football league system.

    Son's first goal came as Spurs were leading 1-0 in the 10th minute. He simply tapped in the ball Dele Alli teed up to him in front of the goalpost.

    In the 29th minute, Son received a defense-splitting forward pass from Juan Foyth, penetrated Ipswich's half from the right and scored by tossing the ball just over the goalkeeper's head as he charged Son.

    Son played as a striker in place of Harry Kane, who is in self-isolation after a holiday in the Bahamas.

    "This is my 10th pre-season in Europe, and I always want to score a goal," Son said. Tottenham's next pre-season matches are against Championship sides Reading on Friday and Birmingham City on Saturday.
