Son Heung-min of Tottenham Hotspur helped to set up a goal after coming on as a substitute in a home match against Chelsea in London on Sunday.
With his team leading 1-0, Son came off the bench in the 79th minute and took a corner kick three minutes later. The corner was headed by Eric Dier to Harry Kane at the goalmouth, who scored to seal Spurs' 2-0 victory.
After two consecutive wins, Tottenham is currently sitting in fourth place on the English Premier League table with 45 points from 14 wins, three draws and eight losses.
It was Son's second consecutive start on the bench, and his third this season. In a match against Leister City in September, he scored a hat trick after coming on in the 59th minute, and he scored a goal four minutes after being brought on to the pitch in the 68th minute in a match against West Ham last week.
In Sunday's match, he was given just 17 minutes to play including injury time.
"I don't feel good [about being a substitute]. It's not good," he said. "But I'm satisfied with the result of the players' hard work."
