The World Cup is fast approaching and all the teams taking part are preparing for the greatest show on earth by playing a number of friendlies. While most eyes will be on the likes of England, Brazil, Germany, Spain and other favourites, the other teams will also be looking to spring a surprise.
We all remember how South Korea did in 2002 as they defeated Italy in the knockout rounds and made it to the semi-finals and this time, the team will be led by our very own Son Heung-min.
The Spurs man took part in a recent match against Honduras and was on target to provide a bit of a boost ahead of Russia 2018 and after a season where he scored 12 times in the Premier League for us, he will expect to bag a few more goals in the upcoming tournament.

Twitter was filled with fans sharing their praise and support for Son and some fans even demanded that Spurs give the South Korean a contract extension.
I love you Sonny
