South Korea call up Tottenham winger Son for Asian Games

SEOUL, South Korea — Tottenham winger Son Heung-min could miss the beginning of the Premier League season in the wake of being chosen by South Korea to play in the Asian Games in Indonesia.

Child has been incorporated as one of three overage players in the 20-man squad for the Under-23 competition that keeps running from Aug. 14-Sept. 1. The Premier League commences on Aug. 11.

Be that as it may, the Asian Games isn’t an authority FIFA competition and Tottenham can pick not to discharge the player. In any case, if Son enables his nation to win the gold decoration, he would be excluded from a 21-month long military administration period that he is probably going to need to begin in 2020.

South Korea’s U23 mentor Kim Hak-bom said at a news meeting on Monday: “We first need to thank every one of these clubs for discharging their players. Nonetheless, we haven’t achieved concessions to their discharge dates, so the Korea Football Association is searching for approaches to affirm the dates.”
