Tottenham star Son shines for South Korea in win over China

Son Heung-min won a penalty and set up the second goal as South Korea beat China 2-0 at the Asian Cup.

Just three days after playing in Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester United, Son was back in action after linking up with his national side for their final group match.

The forward, wearing the captain’s armband, was tripped in the area in the first half to allow Hwang Ui-jo to open the scoring.

Then, shortly after half-time, Son’s corner was headed in at the near post by Kim Min-jae.

Tottenham, who have lost Harry Kane for around two months due to an ankle injury, could be without Son until early February depending on how far South Korea progress.

They are through to the next round after topping Group C.
