Heung-Min Son dedicated his goal for South Korea to former Tottenham teammate Christian Eriksen, who continues to recover in hospital after collapsing in Denmark’s loss to Finland.
The Danish superstar is awake and stable in hospital as medics perform tests following the traumatic Euro 2020 incident.
He sent messages to his Inter Milan team-mates and compatriots, who finished the delayed Group B encounter with Finland without him.
And Eriksen received many good wishes and dedications following the incident.
On Sunday morning, Korean forward Son, who spent four and a half seasons alongside the Dane at Spurs, was in action against Lebanon in a World Cup qualifier.
He scored the last goal in a 2-1 win and after scoring from the penalty spot he ran towards a camera to send his own message.

Son raised two fingers on one hand and three on the other to signify 23 – Eriksen’s shirt number to Spurs.
And when he got to the camera at the edge of the pitch, he yelled “Chris stay strong, I love you!”
He follows Eriksen’s teammate Romelu Lukaku, who made a similar dedication in Belgium’s 3-0 win over Russia.
The Belgian later admitted how the incident affected him upon seeing him as he prepared for his own match,
“There were a lot of tears going into the game,” Lukaku said.
“It was very difficult to concentrate for this game, also for Toby [Alderweireld], Jan [Vertonghen], Nacer [Chadli]. We all know him very well. I hope he will recover; he has two young children, they need him and so do we as a team. I’m happy with the win but my thoughts are with Christian now.
On Sunday morning, the Danish Football Association revealed that Eriksen was still in stable condition and sent greetings to his compatriots.
“Latest news: This morning we spoke to Christian Eriksen, who sent his greetings to his teammates.
“His condition is stable and he continues to be hospitalized for further examination. “
The statement continued, “The national team team and staff have received crisis assistance and will continue to be there for each other after yesterday’s incident.
“We would like to thank everyone for the sincere greetings to Christian Eriksen from the fans, players, Royal Families of Denmark and England, international associations, clubs etc.
“We encourage everyone to send their greetings to the Danish federation, where we will ensure that they are all passed on to Christian and his family.”
