Tottenham Hotspur captain, Son Heung-min, was left frustrated after being denied a clear penalty during a friendly match against Saudi Arabia.
Son, who made a penetrating run into the penalty box, was on the verge of shooting when he was blatantly taken down by Saudi centre-back Hassan Altambakti.
Despite the evident foul, referee Andy Madley waved play on, much to Son’s surprise and annoyance.

South Korea managed to secure a 1-0 victory thanks to Cho Gue-sung’s first-half goal, but Son’s sense of injustice remained as he felt aggrieved by the missed penalty opportunity.
