Watch: Son Heung-min scores for South Korea & pays tribute to Eriksen


Son Heung-min paid tribute to former Tottenham team-mate Christian Eriksen after scoring for South Korea in a World Cup qualifier against Lebanon.

Eriksen collapsed on the pitch during Denmark’s Euro 2020 game against Finland on Saturday and had to receive urgent medical attention on the pitch.

He was then taken to hospital and the Danish Football Association have since revealed Eriksen is currently in a stable condition.

Son, who spent four-and-a-half seasons playing alongside the Denmark international at Spurs, was in action against Lebanon a few hours after the incident.

With the scores level at 1-1, the forward scored from the penalty spot and then held up two fingers on one hand and three on the other, signifying Eriksen’s shirt number at Spurs.

He also ran towards a TV camera to say: “Chris, stay strong. I love you.”

It follows Eriksen’s Inter Milan team-mate Romelu Lukaku doing a similar gesture during Belgium’s 3-0 victory over Russia.
