TOTTENHAM ace Son Heung-min has been named in South Korea’s World Cup squad despite manager Paulo Bento not being sure when the 30-year-old can train.
A collision with ex-Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba left the South Korean idol with a broken orbital bone.
As a result, Son had to have eye surgery, which was successful.
Son will be heading to Qatar to contest the World Cup, where South Korea will play Uruguay, Ghana and Portugal in Group H.
Their first game will be against South Americans Uruguay on November 24.
However, manager Bento is not sure when Son will return to training.
He said: “We don’t have that information yet.
“We are in contact with him, with the Tottenham medical department.
“We need to wait, we need to analyse day by day his situation.
“We have time to decide and the most important is he recovers as well as possible, he feels comfortable and then we will take the final decision.”
Fellow Premier League star Hwang Hee-chan has also been selected.
The Wolves striker is another one of South Korea’s star players.
