Heung-Min Son has just received some very good news ahead of Tottenham v Leeds
Tottenham might be without Heung-Min Son for today’s clash with Leeds but that doesn’t mean it’s all doom and gloom for the forward.
The Spurs star suffered a horrific blow to the face a week or so back which threatened to derail his season somewhat.
Son, who is the outright star for South Korea, was concerned he might even miss the World Cup. But having missed out for Tottenham in recent games and being set to be sidelined against Leeds today, Son has indeed received some goods news in the end.
Confirmed by Fabrizio Romano, Son has been selected by South Korea to go to the World Cup in Qatar.
It means that Korea must feel that ‘Sonny’ will indeed be fit enough to play some or all part in the tournament.
Son might end up wearing some sort of protective mask in the group games. It is hard to imagine South Korea not playing their star man, especially on the biggest of all stages.
Of course, this is good news for Tottenham as well. It means that Son is showing good signs of recovery and barring any sort of disaster in Qatar, he’ll be ready and raring to go in December.
TBR’s View: Son was always going to be called up by South Korea
You’d imagine South Korea would have called up Son even if he’d had a broken leg. Such is his importance to the group.
However, this does look like he is going to play. A lot of players play on with injuries to their face and Son will be no different. He’ll want to perform and show the world his talents that everyone at Spurs knows so much about.
So, while so many miss out and face heart ache, Son seems to have got the best news. Now, he’ll be hoping for a Tottenham win over Leeds to round off his weekend.
