Korean national soccer team captain Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) is leading the team atmosphere by encouraging his teammates with a bright expression. Fans are interested in whether Son Heung-min, who becomes stronger with the Taegeuk mark, can present his first win to coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany).
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Klinsman, will have an evaluation match against Uruguay at 8:00 pm on the 28th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Uruguay, currently ranked 16th in the FIFA rankings, is objectively ahead of Korea, ranked 25th. Even in their 9 head-to-head matches, Korea is behind with 1 win, 2 draws and 6 losses. In the first leg of the Qatar World Cup group stage last November, the two teams drew without scoring.
South Korea’s only victory was a friendly match held in Seoul on October 12, 2018, when Hwang Ui-jo and Jung Woo-young scored consecutive goals, and Taegeuk Warriors won 2-1.
Even if the command tower changes, Son Heung-min, who wears the captain’s armband, is the most trusted card by ‘Klins Manho’.
Son Heung-min scored two goals alone in the evaluation match against Colombia held in Ulsan on the 24th and led 2-2.
Given a ‘free roll’ behind the frontline striker, he scored a goal with his left foot in the 10th minute of the first half and shook the net with a picturesque right-footed free kick shot in the extra time of the first half.
He succeeded in scoring his 5th free kick goal in his personal career A-match, surpassing Ha Seok-joo (4 goals) and setting the record for the most free kick goals scored by a Korean player.
In addition, it continued its strong performance against Colombia, recording the first case in which a Korean player scored in three consecutive matches in an A match against a specific country on a continent other than Asia. Unlike the ups and downs at Tottenham, his recent flow with the national team is the best.
After a short outing on the 25th, the Taegeuk Warriors, who were convened at the Paju NFC in the afternoon of the 26th, started tempering for victory against Uruguay with a bright expression. Coach Klinsman raised the atmosphere by encouraging the players, saying, “Sonny, you’re doing well” and “Minjae, Mamma Mia.”
Son Heung-min, who had a smile on his face, played the role of captain, even nagging his teammates when he saw a gap while training with a bright face. 메이저놀이터
It was impressive to see Son Heung-min cheering his teammates out loud when the players looked tough because of the rather chilly weather.
Son Heung-min, who is fluent in both English and German, is conversing comfortably with coach Klinsmann and other coaches, and is faithfully fulfilling the role of a bridge between the players and the coaching staff.
