South Korean soccer player Son Heung-min exploded for two goals and an assist for Bayer Leverkusen in a 3-3 draw during its Saturday Bundesliga match against VfB Stuttgart.

The 22-year-old striker scored his first of two in the fourth minute after maneuvering around Stuttgart defender Georg Niedermeier.

His second came just five minutes later as he gained possession after a bad clearance by Stuttgart goalkeeper Thorsten Kirschbaum. Son took the opportunity to launch a shot from 30 yards past an out-of-position Kirschbaum.

The two goals accounted for his seventh and eighth goals this season.

He almost scored his third under 12 minutes but a delicate lob over the head of the goalkeeper hit the crossbar and prevented the hat trick.

After helping build up a 3-0 lead, the Leverkusen defense gave up 3 goals in the second half.

Despite the game’s outcome, Son Heung-min is proving himself as an elite player within the Bundesliga.

    Just wanted to comment in regards to the photo. That’s not Stefan Reinartz, it’s actually Karim Bellarabi.
