    Tottenham Hotspur captain Son Heung-Min has addressed the fears of Tottenham fans after what appeared to be an agonizing injury during South Korea 2026 World Cup Qualifiers match against Singapore.

    It was previously thought the in-form Spurs attacker would be sidelined but he has moved quick to allay the fears, insisting he will be fit to continue on international duty with the national team when they take China on Tuesday.

    Son is a key part of Ange Postecoglou’s transformed Tottenham Hotspur squad. He was appointed the club’s new captain after Harry Kane left in the summer for Bayern Munich.

    An injury blow to the 31-year-old would have deepened the club’s injury crisis. Spurs are already sweating with a mounting list of injured players. Richarlison, Ivan Perisic, James Maddison, Van de Ven are all sidelined.

    After Ivan Perisic and Richarlison injuries, Tottenham Hotspur had James Maddison and Micky Van de Ven crocked in their first defeat this season against Chelsea in London derby.

    They will be without the players till the new year and could not afford to lose Son Heung-Min to the piling injury list.

    Son Heung-Min got up after the knock and finished the match against the Singaporeans which ended in a convincing 5-0 win for South Korea.

    Speaking after the game, he said: “We are making a team for the World Cup, I can’t give up a game just because I feel pain.

    “If I can’t run anymore, then I can’t do anything about it but when I can run, I have to give 100% for the team.

    “I am fine now, I don’t like to lie down [on the pitch] in the winter. At that moment, I couldn’t feel anything on my foot. I’m fine, no injury.”

    His statement comes as huge relief to Spurs who will hope to have the player back to action for the club on November 26 after the international break.
