Son, who left Tottenham's Premier League camp after the win over Newcastle to join the South Korea squad for the Asian Games, will be exempted from compulsory military service if he can guide his country to a win over Japan in the final.

In the past there has been tremendous public criticism of those, such as the children of government officials, who manage to find loopholes in order to avoid military service.

His tears after South Korea's quarter-final defeat by Honduras at the 2016 Rio Olympics melted hearts, and thousands offered to do double their own military service in an online petition if Son could be pardoned.
