Son vows to lead South Korea to football gold

Spurs forward Son Heung-min has three chances of avoiding military service after reaching final

South Korea's unlikely run to the last four during the World Cup it co-hosted with Japan had millions of fans pouring onto the streets in cities across the country to celebrate victories. Kim is very good tactically and is considered the Alex Ferguson of the K League.

All able-bodied South Korean men must complete 21 months service in the military as a deterrent against the North, but exemptions are offered to athletes who win gold at the Asian Games or a medal of any colour at the Olympics. "We will try to play an attractive and spectacular semifinal", said Park.

The country did have success, however, in the women's under-52kg final as Natsumi Tsunoda overcame South Korea's Park Dasol by ippon.

"Nah, the game was too late. was hard to watch but I was very happy (for) my team", he said.

Nguyen Tien Dat, deputy director of Transviet Tourism Company, said it has reserved around 150 seats for Vietnamese supporters to Indonesia to cheer Vietnamese men's football team for the semifinal match.

Now Park and his players stand in the way of Tottenham forward Son Heung-min and his Korean teammates.

Failure to win a gold medal in Indonesia will likely mean the 26-year-old Son will have to return home within the next two years to perform his national duty. Korea beat China 29-23 in the final in Jakarta on Thursday to win its seventh all-time Asiad gold medal.

Son was a substitute in Tottenham's first game of the Premier League campaign but has missed most of the games to be part of the Asian Games.

Fired-up Korea won a thrilling semi-final contest against Chinese Taipei 3-2 (20-25, 25-20, 25-16, 20-25, 15-12) to reach their 10th final showdown at the Asian Games.

'It was a hard game, ' said Son, who was removed as a precaution after 72 minutes while on a booking. "But I'm sure we'll develop and learn from this experience".

A double from Lee Seung-woo and another goal from free-scoring striker Hwang Ui-jo sent the Koreans through to this weekend's final, where they face either Japan or the United Arab Emirates as they chase a record fifth title.
