It came too late for South Korea, but it’s worth watching again.

Son Heung-min scored on a beautiful strike in the 93rd minute of South Korea’s group stage match loss to Mexico, 2-1, on Saturday. It didn’t change the result, but it did breathe life into a team that nearly went scoreless in consecutive games.

Please enjoy the beauty of this kick with incredible narration from Jorge Perez-Navarro, the broadcaster none of us truly deserve.

GOOOOOOOOAAAALLLLLL. Son became the sixth player to score outside the penalty box in open play at the 2018 World Cup so far.

For South Korea, the strike came all too late as Mexico dominated most of the earlier match with goals from Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez. South Korea is now 0-2 in the group stage, while Mexico has a full six points.
