When Son Heung-min collapsed, not only South Korea but also the United Kingdom went into a frenzy.
British media outlet ‘The Sun’ reported on the 18th (KST), “Son Heung-min reassured Tottenham fans that he is feeling fine after the A-League match against Singapore. Spurs currently have a number of players on the injury list. Tottenham manager Enze Postecoglou must have breathed a huge sigh of relief.”
South Korea defeated Singapore 5-0 in the first match of the second round of Asian qualifying for the 2026 FIFA Confederations Cup North America at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Saturday. Son Heung-min, who started the match, scored South Korea’s fourth goal in the 18th minute of the second half with his trademark mid-range left-footed curling shot.
In the so-called Son Heung-min zone, the South Korean striker took a fantastic shot from outside the left penalty box. The Singapore goalkeeper threw himself at it but was unable to stop it.
However, he grabbed his ankle in the last minute of the game and went down for a while, much to the concern of the fans. On this day, Singapore played rough to stop South Korean ace Son Heung-min. They played a risky defense, kicking him in the ankle when he caught the ball and tried to dribble. He went down and lay on the ground for a while in severe pain.
Luckily, the game was over, but the Spurs have a lot to think about. Recent injuries to the likes of Madison Mount, Micky van der Penne, and Heath Ledger have left holes in the squad. After opening the season with eight wins and two draws, Spurs climbed to the top of the Premier League table, but have since dropped to third after two consecutive defeats. Their current predicament would be compounded if their captain and top scorer (8 goals), Son Heung-min, were to get injured.
“Son Heung-min has stepped up a notch this season. Even though his partner Harry Kane left Tottenham for Bayern Munich, Tottenham have been able to thrive because of his development.” “He is expected to play against Aston Villa on the 26th. Of course, that’s assuming he doesn’t get injured in China.”
After the Singapore game, Son said, “I can’t give up a game because I’m sick. “If I can’t play at all, I don’t know, but if I can play a little bit, I have to give 100% for the team,” he said, “I’m fine. I don’t like lying on the ground. But the moment I got fouled, I couldn’t feel anything in my foot. I’m fine now. There are no injuries.”
South Korea will play China on Nov. 21 in the second round of the Asian qualifiers. The Chinese are known for injuring opponents with their tough defense, even in friendly matches. Tottenham can only hope that Son Heung-min returns safely. 아톰카지노 도메인
