The South Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, defeated Vietnam 6-0 in a friendly match for the national soccer team invited by Hana Bank at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 17th.
With the victory, Klinsmann continued his three-game winning streak. He also played multiple goals for two consecutive games following his 4-0 victory over Tunisia.
Son Heung-min, who missed the match against Tunisia due to his poor physical condition, started the match on the same day. Son Heung-min, who led the attack, fired a scoring shot in the 16th minute of the second half, finishing Lee Dae-il’s pass against Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers). In the 25th minute of the second half, he also helped Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) to score one goal and one assist.
After the game, Son Heung-min said in an interview with the broadcaster, “I never ignored Vietnam and it was most important to respect the opponent,” and reflected, “I could easily lead the players because it worked out well.” 스포츠토토
“It’s my homework that I didn’t take advantage of many opportunities,” he said. “I definitely played a good game and it’s a game that should be praised.” I want to give credit to the players rather than me,” he said.
Regarding the physical condition that many fans are concerned about, he said, “I can’t help but get injured while living as a soccer player,” adding, “I thought a lot about whether to play in the game today as well.” “I came to Korea, but it is not acceptable for me not to play in front of the fans,” he said. “Although I had little training, I am also grateful for the coach who made the decision and the players who respected me.”
Finally, Son Heung-min said, “I haven’t won much so far, but I think my confidence has risen with this three consecutive wins,” adding, “I will continue the good atmosphere as I enter the actual game.” In addition, he/she strengthened his/her determination, saying, “As the first victory was late, I want to spend a journey to laugh with fans when I am happy or sad with good results.”
