'I won't miss this' – Son Heung-min says he WILL play in World Cup 2022 despite Tottenham star's eye injury | The Sun

HEUNG MIN-SON has confirmed he's fit to play at the World Cup in Qatar.

The Tottenham forward was in race against time following an eye injury suffered against Marseille last week.

Son was withdrawn in the first half at the Orange Velodrome and then underwent surgery to 'stabilise a fracture' around his left eye.

As a result, he missed Tottenham's defeat to Liverpool on Sunday and is also set to miss their two remaining pre-World Cup games.

But the South Korea star confirmed on his Instagram that he'll be present in Qatar.

He said: "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. 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. Sonny."

South Korea face Iceland on Friday in a friendly before getting their campaign underway against Uruguay on 24 November.
