Son Heung-Min Keen To Feature For South Korea At The Asian Game

Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has reportedly expressed his eagerness to represent South Korea at the Asian games this year in order to bypass the country’s military service.All able-bodied South Korean males have to compulsorily serve the military for a period of 21 months but they can get an exemption from this by winning a gold medal at either the Olympic or the Asian games.

Son Heung-Min Disappointed With Champions League Exit

South Korea international Son Heung-Min expressed his disappointment after Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of this season’s Champions League. The north London club had been in a solid position to qualify for the quarter-final stage after they put in a solid performance in the first-leg of their round of 16 tie at Juventus – which ended in a 2-2 draw.


Son enhanced the club’s chances further by netting the opener during the second-leg, but this was not sufficient as Juventus came from behind to pick up a 2-1 victory. The triumph ensured that the Bianconeri progressed with a 4-3 aggregate scoreline, and Son has admitted that there is a sense of unhappiness within the squad.
