Korea`s Son bags brace for Bayer Leverkusen

Munich: South Korea`s Son Heung-Min needed just nine minutes to score two Bundesliga goals on Saturday as Bayer Leverkusen ran riot in the first-half at VfB Stuttgart.

The 22-year-old striker scored from Leverkusen`s first attack after just four minutes when he slotted home from 12 metres out after holding off Stuttgart defender Georg Niedermeier.

Son added his second in spectacular fashion five minutes later when he collected a poor clearance from Thorsten Kirschbaum and rifled his shot past the stranded Stuttgart goalkeeper.

He narrowly missed the chance for a hat-trick inside 11 minutes when his shot clipped the crossbar after he lobbed Kirschbaum.

Leverkusen led 3-0 at the break as Germany`s Karim Bellarabi made it 3-0 on 41 minutes when he fired home after a final pass from Son.
