Son admits ‘amazing’ feeling after scoring first goal at new Spurs stadium

Son Heung-Min admits it was an ‘amazing feeling’ after scoring the first goal at Tottenham’s new stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side marked the opening of their new ground with a much-needed 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, ending a run of five league fixtures without a win.

South Korean forward Son opened the scoring for Spurs, before Christian Eriksen sealed the win late on.

The fixture was preceded by an opening ceremony including fireworks, and Son admits becoming the first player to score at the new ground was a special feeling

“It’s just amazing. What an unbelievable stadium. The noise was just so loud,” the South Korean told Sky Sports.

“To score the first goal at this stadium…I just want to say to thank you to my team-mates and the fans.

“White Hart Lane is our history but the new stadium…I can’t believe it. To play in it is an amazing feeling. It’s a bit different from Wembley. Wembley was not our home.”
