Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur scored a double to help his team beat Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Champions League in London on Wednesday.
His first goal, assisted by Harry Kane, came in the 20th minute after Daichi Kamada of Frankfurt scored the opening goal in the 14th minute.
It was Son's first goal in this year's European league tournament and his fourth goal overall this season. It was also a milestone for Son and Kane, marking the 50th time in all competitions they have combined to score.
Spurs clinched a 3-2 victory in the match -- the fourth in the league's group stage -- with Kane's goal in the 28th minute and Son's second goal in the 36th minute. The German team scored again in the 87th minute but failed to turn the game around. Son was substituted for Lucas Moura in the 86th minute.
Son won the English Premier League's Golden Boot for scoring the most goals last season, but suffered a goal drought at the beginning of this season, going goalless for the first eight matches before finally scoring a hat trick against Leicester City last month.
