Son Heung-Min has a fracture around the eye and will undergo surgery: danger to the World Cup

The South Korean national team has received worrying news regarding the physical condition of Son Heung-Min: the footballer will have to undergo surgery due to a fracture around his left eye. The striker, who was injured when colliding with a rival in Tottenham vs. Marseille, for now has no estimated recovery time.

According to the statement issued by the ‘Spurs’, the 30-year-old attacker will begin the rehabilitation process after undergoing surgery and only then will the period he will need to recover be determined. “We will update the information in due course”highlighted the English club.

Let us remember that Son Heung-Min had to leave the field of the Vélodrome Stadium only after 23 minutes, after receiving a blow with the shoulder of Chancel Mbemba, with whom he had an aerial dispute for the ball. The Asian athlete, due to the impact, was lying motionless on the grass before receiving medical assistance.

At first, the Tottenham players thought the crash was nothing to worry about, but the alarms went off shortly after: the Korean was only able to leave the field with the support of the doctors. After what happened, the rigorous tests confirmed the serious injury for the experienced soccer player.

With only 18 days to go before the Qatar 2022 World Cup, this news means great concern for coach Paulo Bento in the South Korean team. It is worth mentioning that the coach has until November 11 to make his squad list official and, with greater knowledge of the state of Son, he could decide whether or not he includes the striker.
