Son Heung-min scores thunderous volley for Tottenham against Eintracht Frankfurt, he almost took the net off

Son Heung-min scored a magnificent volley for Tottenham in their Champions League win over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Spurs claimed a narrow 3-2 victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Wednesday after playing against 10 men for the majority of the second half.

Tottenham fell behind to an early goal from Daichi Kamada after a mistake from Spurs defender Eric Dier. But they were level six minutes later - Harry Kane playing in Son, who made no mistake with the finish.

Tottenham were then awarded a penalty midway through the first half when Kane was brought down in the area. The England international picked himself up to score his ninth goal of the season in all competitions.

Spurs then went further ahead courtesy of a spectacular second from Son.

After he was found by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg with a floated cross, the South Korea international fired a fierce volley past Frankfurt goalkeeper Kevin Trapp.

“Sonny is back baby,” tweeted one Tottenham supporter after the goal.

While another added: “What a bullet!”

It got harder for Frankfurt after the break when Tuta was sent off for a second bookable offence.

But the visitors were able to set up a nervy finish when Faride Alidou pulled one back in the final minutes of normal time.

Spurs were handed the chance to kill the game when they were awarded a second penalty in injury time, but Kane could only blaze his spot kick over the bar.

In the end, it did not matter as the home side held on for a 3-2 win.

Victory for Antonio Conte's side moves them top of their group on seven points.

They're now one point clear of closest rivals Marseille, who beat Sporting Lisbon 2-0 in the group's other game on Wednesday.
