Son: Military service was special, I've missed everyone
London: Son Heung-min made some new friends while serving his nation in Korea Republic but he’s delighted to now be back alongside his Tottenham Hotspur comrades as they prepare for the Premier League season to resume.
Having undergone surgery to repair a fractured right arm in the wake of the 3-2 win at Aston Villa on February 16, where he sensationally scored a last-gasp winner despite carrying the injury, the flying forward returned to his home country during lockdown and completed his mandatory three-week military service in April.
New Delhi: June 4, 2018 will remain etched in the memory of Indian football fans forever. It was on this day that talismanic Sunil Chhetri played his 100th International match – only the second Indian footballer to do so. And he made it even more memorable with a double strike in a 3-0 victory over mighty Kenya.
While a full house clad in Blue braved the incessant rain to reach the Mumbai Football Arena hours before the kick-off, the rest of India remained glued to their television sets to witness history — #Chhetri100.
