Tottenham Hotspur preseason training begins, sans Son
Tottenham Hotspur kicked off preseason training in London on Tuesday with a number of key players still absent, including Korean star striker Son Heung-min.
Tottenham players Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Sergio Reguilon, Matt Doherty, Joe Hart, Lucas Moura, Steven Bergwijn, Harry Winks, Erik Lamela and Cameron Carter-Vickers were all seen training at Hotspur Way in London on Tuesday, while other big names like Son and Harry Kane are yet to rejoin the club.
Kane is currently still on international duty with the England squad. England are set to face Denmark in the semifinal of the 2020 Euros on Wednesday evening, or early Thursday morning in Korea. Denmark also trained ahead of the game at Tottenham's training ground.
Son has also been on international duty with Korea, playing in a number of World Cup qualifiers last month. He has since completed a number of promotional activities, including the issuing of a commemorative coin and plaque in his honor by the Korea Minting and Security Printing Corporation and being appointed an honorary ambassador by the Korea Tourism Organization.
Son is expected to return to the club in the next few weeks.
