DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – Son Heung-min has arrived at the Asian Cup after missing the first two games in South Korea while playing for Premier League club Tottenham.

The attacking midfielder posed for selfies and signed a jersey at the airport in Dubai a day after playing in Tottenham & # 39; s 1-0 loss to Manchester United on Sunday in London.

South Korea has already qualified for the last 16 and Son can play in the last group C-game against China on Wednesday, with both sides chasing after first place.

It is Son & # 39; s third international tournament in less than a year.

After playing the World Cup Son missed the first part of the English season while playing for South Korea at the Asian Games. He led the team to the title and ensured exemption from military service.
