What South Korea’s World Cup misery means for Son Heung-Min’s military service and Tottenham future

Tottenham star Son Heung-Min could now find his potential two years of military service hinges on how well South Korea perform in August’s Asian Games, according to Mirror Football. South Korean law dictates that all males from the country must be conscripted before the age of 28, with Song turning 26 on July 8. However, exemptions are made for high-profile sports stars who achieve success for the country. After World Cup failure, the Son will be desperate for some success at the Asian games to avoid a messy issue. The games take place in Indonesia between August 18 and September 2, meaning that Son will miss the start of the Premier League season if he’s involved, as now seems likely.
