Spurs star Son sends message to Eriksen after South Korea goal

Heung-min Son sent a message of support to his former Tottenham team-mate Christian Eriksen after scoring for South Korea last night.

Inter Milan midfielder Eriksen is now recovering after collapsing in Euros action for Denmark yesterday.

Son and Eriksen played together for over five years at Spurs before the latter moved to Inter Milan in January 2020.

The forward on Saturday evening scored from the penalty spot to earn Paulo Bento's side victory in Goyang before running to a pitchside camera and holding up his fingers to signal 23, the shirt number Erikson wore during his time at Spurs.

"Christian Eriksen, I love you," Son said as he peered into the camera.

The gesture follows a similar one from Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, who is one of Eriksen's current team-mates at Inter.
