48% Of People Want Heung-Min Son To Be FIFA 20 Cover Star

A few days we told you how Spurs forward Heung-Min Son is surprisingly very high up on a poll whereby fans have been voting on who they want to be FIFA 20 cover star.

FIFPlay, a site completely devoted to FIFA-related content, have been running the poll on who fans want to see front and centre when the next FIFA comes out in September time.

To begin with, Son was placed in third in the voting, ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. But in just a matter of days, he's now steered way ahead of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah.

At the time of writing, after over 110,000 votes, Son has garnered 53,544 votes so far - over 40,000 more than Ronaldo, the cover star for the past two years.

Ronaldo is second, Messi is third, Salah founds himself in fourth after receiving nine per cent of the votes and Thomas Muller completes the top five with six per cent.

It's early days because there's a long, long way to go until voting and it's entirely up to EA as to who they want to be the face of their game, but it's great to see so much support for the former Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburg man.

Son is one of those footballers that you struggle to dislike and it was incredible to see his reaction to his country's Asian Games triumph at the start of September.

Son captained his national side to the Gold medal, beating Japan 2-1 in the final thanks to extra time strikes from Seungwoo Lee and Hwang Hee Chan.

Given permission to miss a few Premier League games by Mauricio Pochettino and Spurs, Son assisted both goals in the final and he and his colleagues earnt automatic exemption from compulsory military service.

And you could see just how much it meant to them at the final whistle. A jubilant Son ran onto the pitch, running and jumping around, hugging his teammates and manager in some quite wonderful scenes.

Who should be the FIFA 20 cover star in your opinion?

Sound off in the comments.
