Tottenham fans have called on Antonio Conte to ditch Harry Kane as the club's free-kick taker. Many feel as though Heung-min Son deserves the chance to take over and he made a good case on Friday by lashing a set-piece effort into the top corner while playing for South Korea.

An eventful game against Costa Rica saw Son's side fall 2-1 behind, until an 80th-minute red card changed the game. With the one-man advantage, South Korea were awarded a free-kick on the edge of the box with five minutes of normal time left to play.

Son stepped up and curled an effort so ferocious and precise that it left the goalkeeper rooted to the spot, despite flying in at his near post.

Spurs fans were quick to get hold of the incident on social media and begged Conte to consider cutting Kane from free-kick duty and instating Son as his replacement.  "We’ve been robbed for 5/6 years of top bin free kicks because we insist on letting Kane take them," wrote @HJ_Thornton on Twitter, followed by a laughing and yawning emoji.
