South Korea’s national team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, defeated China 3-0 in the second Asian qualifying round of the FIFA 2026 North-China World Cup held at the Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen, China on the 21st (Korea time).
Captain Son Heung-min’s performance shone. South Korea’s Hwang Hee-chan won a penalty kick in the 11th minute of the first half, and Son Heung-min, who played as a kicker, finished it calmly. Son Heung-min then received a corner kick from Lee Kang-in in the 45th minute of the first half to make an additional goal with a sensational header, and in the 42nd minute of the second half, he helped Jung Seung-hyun score a header with a sharp cross. 카지노사이트 순위
The game is creating a variety of topics not only in Korea but also in China. One of them was a light war of nerves between Urey and Son Heung-min.
The war of nerves came right after Son Heung-min scored a penalty kick. Son Heung-min, who scored a penalty kick, put his index finger on his mouth and made a gesture to be quiet in front of Chinese home fans. In response, Urey protested against Son Heung-min. It is interpreted as an action not to provoke home fans.
After hearing Urey’s protest, Son Heung-min smiled leisurely and seemed to be nothing. Hwang Hee-chan stepped up from here. Hwang Hee-chan immediately ran and pushed out the thunder directly. Afterwards, he shook his head and made a gesture to Wu Lei not to say anything useless. As a teammate playing in the Premier League together, he actively defended Son Heung-min.
Meanwhile, Korean soccer fans gave a thumbs-up to Son’s actions after the match. Most of the opinions were that Urey’s protest was somewhat absurd. Before the start of the game, Chinese fans showed senseless behavior by booing while Korean players were singing the national anthem. When each team’s national anthem resonates in the A-match between countries, it is a kind of “manner” that maintains silence. However, the national anthem was not respected by Chinese fans, and Son Heung-min comforted domestic soccer fans by celebrating to Chinese fans to be quiet.
