Ahead of the match, a word from captain Son Heung-min, who burns the war of the Republic of Korea, was released, drawing attention. In a meeting with players a day before the game, Son Heung-min predicted a Chinese smash, saying, The crowd will be full tomorrow, so let’s show what kind of soccer we want to play and play well so that we can’t breathe at all.
There’s a saying called Gonghanjeung. It is a modifier that arose from China’s fear as it fought against the Republic of Korea every time. Son Heung-min’s comment was interpreted as an intention to make him realize his meritorious deed once again. Son Heung-min fulfilled his promise by himself. In the 8th minute of the first half, Hwang Hee-chan took the lead by scoring a penalty kick.
Son Heung-min used his unique dribbling skills to inspire the attack by bullying China’s defense all the time. Son Heung-min’s presence exploded again. In the 44th minute of the first half, he made his second goal with a header shot that slightly changed the direction of Lee Kang-in’s cross, which was connected in a free-kick situation.
Son Heung-min also roamed the ground in the second half. In the 42nd minute of the second half, he added help to Jung Seung-hyun’s third goal, driving the Republic of Korea’s pleasant victory. There was also a scene that caught everyone’s attention. Son Heung-min showed off his world-class side in the 11th minute of the second half by showing off his sensuous Labona kick pass.
Chinese media ‘Sports Now’ shed light on the fact that South Korea won 3-0 away from China with captain Son Heung-min scoring two goals and one assist. Son Heung-min played an active part throughout the game. He surprised everyone by showing off his Labona skills, he said.
In response to Son Heung-min’s remarks, Let’s make him breathless, he said, We emphasized to play our play against China. The players showed the play that the coach wanted well. We have a really good result, he said.
China also expressed meaningless confidence ahead of the game. Defender Jang Sen-lung is confident of blocking Son Heung-min. Jang Sen-lung said, I watched and analyzed many games that Son Heung-min played in. He is a high-quality player with both feet. However, he expressed confidence, saying, I will actively prevent it by cooperating tactically with my colleagues.
We are studying ways to contain Son Heung-min. I can’t give details. Watch how you block it, he said, expressing his confident will. The nation’s meaningless provocation served as an opportunity to further burnish the will of the South Korean captain.
Son Heung-min said, I didn’t feel good when I heard it could stop me. I respect all the players’ comments, but it was a difficult statement to understand. I thought it was necessary to lead by example as the national team captain and did my best. I overcame it with my colleagues and enjoyed it, he said.
Vietnamese media vnexpress paid attention to this part, saying, I felt upset that Son Heung-min was ignored by China. Son Heung-min seems to have decided to play because of China’s derogatory remarks, he added.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min said on social media after the match, I finished my last national team match in China in 2023. The November national team call-up was colder than ever, but thanks to your love, I had a warm and happy time. Thank you for making me feel precious every time. 2023 national team life, made me so happy. I hope we can all laugh and be happier in 2024! I love you. Korea, he said, expressing his gratitude to his fans.
