Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min has scored six goals from nine games this season and hopes were pinned on him to extend his good run with South Korea.

On Friday, the country will host Tunisia in a friendly and there are concerns over the 31-year-old’s availability for that clash.

That’s according to Sports Seoul, who explain that the Tottenham forward was left out of yesterday’s training due to a groin injury.

According to the Korean Football Association [KFA], Son was focusing on his recovery which is why he rode a cycle indoors and then went for a massage.

A KFA official has stated the latest measures were precautionary and the player is currently ‘not in pain’.

On his involvement for the clash against Tunisia, the same official said: “We will hear the team doctor’s final opinion on the 12th and decide whether to participate.”

South Korea manager Jürgen Klinsmann should provide more clarity on Son’s situation in the pre-match press conference. After the clash against Tunisia, South Korea will face Vietnam in another friendly tie next week.

Meanwhile, Tottenham host Fulham after this month’s international break, and both Spurs and Ange Postecoglou will be sweating on Son’s fitness.

They certainly won’t want him to be risked in a friendly.
