Tottenham's Son Heung-min arrives in Indonesia for Asian Games with South Korea

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Shaka Hislop had a case of deja vu after watching Tottenham's opener against Newcastle.
Mauricio Pochettino says if Tottenham are to win trophies, they need players focused on the team's goals and not individual targets.
Most of Tottenham's World Cup stars featured from the start and overcame fatigue and an inspired Newcastle team to get three points away from home.

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min landed in Indonesia on Monday as he prepares to play for South Korea at the Asian Games.

Son will be one of three overage players in the under-23 team. If South Korea win the gold medal, Son will be exempt from 21 months of military service, an obligation he is otherwise expected to start within the next two years.

"Of course our target is gold but it is a long way to get to the final," Son said on his arrival at Bandung International Airport. "How we approach the...

South Korea kickoffs put back for first time ever as heatwave strikes

Record-breaking temperatures that have caused 30 deaths in South Korea have forced the country's top-flight K-League to delay kickoffs until after sunset for the first time ever this weekend.

Temperatures hit 39.6 degrees Centigrade (103.28 degrees Farenheit) in the capital, Seoul, on Wednesday -- the highest since weather authorities began monitoring them in 1907.

Lee Jong-kwoun, a K-League public relations official, told Reuters that, after discussions with the clubs, it had been agreed to push...

Tottenham strike deal to let Son Heung-Min play for South Korea at Asian Games

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino feels English sides are at a disadvantage to European clubs due to the transfer window closing earlier.
Members of Tottenham teamed up with players from the NFL's Minnesota Vikings as they tried their hands at American football.

Tottenham have released Son Heung-Min for the group stage of this month's Asian Games on the condition that he misses matches for South Korea later in the season.

Spurs have no obligation to let Son take part in the Asian Games, which take place between Aug. 10 and Sept. 1. And, given that Harry Kane and Dele Alli are only returning to training on Monday after reaching the World Cup semifinals, the timing of the tournament in Indonesia is far from ideal for the club.

Tottenham initially wanted to...

Son Heung-Min sorry for leaving Tottenham to play in Asian Games

Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino feels English sides are at a disadvantage to European clubs due to the transfer window closing earlier.
Members of Tottenham teamed up with players from the NFL's Minnesota Vikings as they tried their hands at American football.

Son Heung-Min admits he has mixed feelings about leaving his Tottenham teammates to take part in the Asian Games at the start of the season.

The 26-year-old is one of three overage players who has been named in South Korea's under-23 squad for the tournament, which runs from Aug. 14 to Sept. 1.

Spurs had no obligation to release Son. But if he wins gold with his country -- who won the last edition in 2014 -- he will be exempted from his impending 21-month military service.

Tottenham, who have just...

Tottenham could lose Son Heung-Min to Asian Games with South Korea

South Korea have named Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-Min in their squad for the 2018 Asian Games to be held in Indonesia from Aug. 14 to Sept. 1 meaning he could miss opening month of the Premier League season.

Son is one of three overage players named in the 20-man under-23 squad along with goalkeeper Cho Hyun-Woo and Japan-based striker Hwang Ui-Jo.

However, as the tournament does not take place in an international match window, Tottenham are under no obligations to release the player...
