Tottenham’s Son is doubtful for World Cup


By Sedara Oluwadara

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.

How Spurs won group on dramatic night in MarseilleTottenham 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 (16:30 GMT).

Son has had his form questioned this season but scored a hat-trick after coming on as a substitute in the 6-2 win over Leicester on 17 September and netted twice against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League on 12 October.
