Tottenham’s Heung-min Son quarantining after five members of the South Korea camp test positive for Covid-19

International football rolls on

Despite much of the world still struggling to control Covid-19 and the current season being extremely busy at club level, international football has continued to roll on.

And unsurprisingly, despite the break not yet being over, we have already seen countless casualties from the Premier League.

Liverpool have been one of the worst sides affected, losing Joe Gomez to injury earlier this week and then having Mohamed Salah test positive Covid-19 on Friday.

Tottenham’s Heung-min Son isolating

Now, on Saturday, another high-profile Premier League star may well have fallen victim to the international break.

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham’s Heung-min Son has been forced to quarantine while on international duty after five members of the South Korea camp tested positive for Covid-19.

Son is not believed to be one of the people to have tested positive.

However, he is now self-isolating in his hotel room as the rest of the squad await further test results.

South Korea are expected to face Mexico on Saturday evening but the results of the aforementioned tests will impact if that game can actually go ahead.

Spurs are set to face Manchester City next Saturday and losing Son would, of course, be a huge blow for the Lilywhites.

The forward has already netted eight and provided two assists in just eight Premier League outings this term and is currently the joint-top scorer in the English top-flight along with Mohamed Salah, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jamie Vardy.
