On Wednesday, South Korea confirmed their place in the Asian Games final for 2018 and Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-Min took one step closer to not seeing his football career stall owing to National Military Service.

His future, unless an unexpected exemption is made for this years group of players, all hinges now on taking victory over Japan in the final game of the tournament and picking up that Gold winners medal.

Having taken a 4-3 victory over Uzbekistan on Monday, he played his part as skipper in helping them to a 3-1 victory over Vietnam so it’s now all eyes to Saturday’s fixture.

Taking to social media to celebrate the latest result, it was still a case of all fingers crossed for him from Spurs fans.

Victory is obviously the cleanest way through this for him, a defeat will see him serve the two-year term at some point prior to his 28th birthday.
