So far this tournament, we have seen Son Heung-Min take to the field for South Korea in a mask.

Skihiri suffered a broken cheekbone in late October but would not let this ruin his World Cup dream.
The midfielder returned a week later wearing a mask as he was determined to play at the World Cup for his country, who are looking to make it out of the group stages for the first time in their history.
