TOTTENHAM forward Heung-min Son has been forced to quarantine while on international duty after four members of the South Korea camp tested positive for coronavirus.
Son is not one of the four to have tested positive but is now self-isolating in his hotel room as the rest of the squad await further test results.
Those results will determine whether or not South Korea’s game against Mexico, set to take place on Saturday night in Austria, will go ahead.
