Watch: Mauricio Pochettino celebrates Heung-min Son’s game-winning assist vs Portugal


Footage which will no doubt bring a smile to the faces of Tottenham Hotspur fans the world over has come to the fore late on Friday.

The clip in question centers on former Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

Currently out of work, tactician Pochettino is carrying out punditry work for the World Cup, and this evening took his place alongside Rio Ferdinand and Alan Shearer in the BBC studio.

The trio were overseeing South Korea’s final group stage outing versus Portugal, from which the Asian outfit ultimately emerged with a shock victory, owing to a last-gasp Hwang Hee-chan winner.

The game’s decisive goal, when it arrived, was masterminded by South Korea’s star man and captain Son Heung-min.

After driving his side forward on the break as the action rolled into injury time, Son did brilliantly to freeze the Portuguese backline, before slipping Hwang in on goal with impeccable timing:

And, as alluded to above, one individual who evidently derived great enjoyment from Son’s fine work was Mauricio Pochettino.

After watching South Korea’s winner hit the net, the Argentine provided a reminder of his Tottenham past, in celebrating alongside the aforementioned Ferdinand and Shearer.
