Qatari player takes it too far after mocking Tottenham star Heung-Min Son’s injury during the WCQ

With ongoing international qualifiers in the build up to next year’s World Cup in Russia, football fans have something to enjoy during the summer break. Qatar’s encounter against South Korea on Tuesday, however, resulted in Tottenham fans fuming over a disgusting incident during the game.

The 34th minute of the match saw Spurs forward Heung-Min Son suffering a horrific injury due to landing awkwardly after an aerial duel with Qatar’s Mohammed Musa. The fall was so bad that the 24-year old broke his arm and had to be taken off the field.

Things turned ugly in the 50th minute when Qatari striker Akram Afif scored to doubled his side’s lead. Afif celebrated his goal by tucking his hand inside his shirt, mocking Heung-Min Son’s broken arm.

Afif did this while simultaneously saluting the camera, which looked like a reference to the Spurs striker’s controversy regarding his military service for Korea.

Celebrating goals is one thing, but this was taken too far. Watch the incident below –
