Heung-min Son, the captain of Tottenham, was outstanding for South Korea as they defeated Singapore 5-0 in their World Cup qualifying matc on Thursday.
His goal from outside the box, which curled into the top left corner, was his most memorable moment. He cut in from the right to his left foot and unleashed.
However, a big injury scare arose for Spurs fans when he appeared to suffer an injury during the match. He was down for a considerable period, seemingly in a lot of pain.
The skipper addressed the injury concerns after the game confirming that he is ‘fine now’.
Son said (via Sungmo Lee):
“We are making a team for FIFA WC, I can’t give up a game just because I feel pain. If I can’t run anymore, then I can’t do anything about it but when I can run, I have to give 100% for the team.
“I am fine now, I don’t like to lie down (on the pitch) in the winter. At that moment (I went down) I couldn’t feel anything on my foot.
“It’s not only me, all players have small injuries but still play for the team.”
