Son has been phenomenal in Tottenham’s shirt of late bagging as many as seven goals in last five appearances for Muaricio Pochettino’s side.

Michal O’Neill, on the other side, won’t be able to count on services of important veterans Chris Brunt and Will Grigg who have decided to skip the actions against Korea Republic and Panama. Hearts’ Kyle Lafferty will be the man to watch out as he will come into the game in high spirits after netting his tenth goal for the Jam in a convincing 3-0 victory over Partick Thistle last weekend.
