By India Today Web Desk: South Korea captain Son Heung-min has declared himself fit for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The Tottenham forward posted a message on social media, saying he won’t miss the tournament for the world.
The South Korea captain started off by saying he’s thankful to all the fans for their messages and support during his injury, adding that he truly appreciates all their wishes.
“Hi everyone. I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you all for the messages of support i have received over the last week. I have read so many of them and truly, truly appreciate you all,” Son posted on his Instagram account.
The 30-year-old went on to confirm his participation in the upcoming FIFA World Cup, saying he couldn’t wait to represent his beautiful country in Qatar.
“In a tough time I received a lot of strength from you! Playing for your country at the World Cup is the dream of so many children growing up, just as it was one of mine too. I won’t miss this for the world. I can’t wait to represent our beautiful country. See you soon,” Son added.
Son picked up an injury and was forced off the pitch in Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Marseille in the UEFA Champions League last week. This raised doubts over the South Korean’s participation in the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
But the 30-year-old has undergone surgery to fix his damaged eye socket to be fit for the World Cup. Spurs manager Antonio Conte was subsequently confident over his player’s chances of representing his nation at the World Cup.
South Korea has been grouped with Portugal, Ghana and Uruguay in the FIFA World Cup. They will kick-off their campaign by facing two-time World champions Uruguay on November 24.
