Son Heung-min a doubt for World Cup as he requires surgery on facial injury

1 min read

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min is to have surgery to stabilise a fracture around his left eye which could rule him out of the World Cup.

Son suffered the injury during Tottenham’s 2-1 win away to Marseille in the Champions League on Tuesday.

“Following surgery, Son will commence rehabilitation with our medical staff and we shall update supporters further in due course,” said a Spurs statement.

Son helped South Korea qualify for the World Cup, which starts on 20 November.

Tottenham have not said when Son will have surgery and have not put a timescale on how long the forward will be out for.

In the more immediate future, the injury is a blow for Spurs, who host Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.
