Tottenham superstar Son Heung-min dedicated his winning goal for South Korea to his former teammate, Christian Eriksen, after what transpired at UEFA Euro 2020 on Saturday.

Denmark took on Finland in their first group game of the tournament. However, play was brought to a halt after Christian Eriksen collapsed on the field.

The footballing world came united to show their support to the Danish playmaker, including his current club teammate, Romelu Lukaku, who sent a message to Eriksen after scoring for Belgium against Russia.

And Son Heung-min, who played with Eriksen at Spurs under Mauricio Pochettino, also dedicated his winning goal against Lebanon to the Inter Milan star.

Eriksen joined Spurs from Ajax in the summer of 2013 while Son came from Bayer Leverkusen to London in 2015. The two played together for four-and-a-half years before Eriksen’s move to Serie A in January 2020.

The South Koreans, meanwhile, beat Lebanon 2-1 in the Asian World Cup qualifiers, courtesy of a 62nd-minute penalty from Son. And after scoring the goal, he displayed Eriksen’s jersey number at Spurs, 23, with his hands.
