The South Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, won 6-0 in a friendly A match against Vietnam at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 17th. South Korea has won multiple points in two consecutive games following its 4-0 landslide win over Tunisia.
On the same day, Korea came out in a 4-4-2 formation. Son Heung-min and Cho Kyu-sung stood in the attack, and Hwang Hee-chan, Lee Kang-in, Park Yong-woo and Lee Jae-sung were in midfield. Lee Ki-je, Kim Min-jae, Jung Seung-hyun, and Seol Young-woo defended the defense, and Cho Hyun-woo blocked the goal.
Son Heung-min was unlikely to play in the game. Coach Klinsmann said at a press conference before the match against Vietnam, “It is not yet known whether Son Heung-min will play or not. In the final training, I will check Son Heung-min’s physical condition and decide whether to participate or not. 토토사이트
On the day of the game, Son Heung-min’s name appeared in the starting lineup. Son Heung-min, who missed the match against Tunisia, made the A-match stage in about a month. Son Heung-min had several chances to score in the first half, but his shot was inaccurate. The shot from a one-on-one chance with the goalkeeper was blocked by the goalkeeper’s leg.
When the whistle sounded at the end of the first half, Son Heung-min limped to the locker room. In the second half, Son Heung-min was likely to be replaced out. However, Klinsmann replaced three defenders (Lee Ki-je, Jung Seung-hyun and Seol Young-woo), not Son Heung-min, and added Kim Jin-soo, Kim Young-kwon and Kim Tae-hwan.
Soon after, he excluded Lee Jae-sung and Cho Kyu-sung and added Jung Woo-young and Hwang Ui-jo. In the 30th minute of the second half, Kim Joo-sung was put in place of Kim Min-jae. Son Heung-min complained of pain at the end of the six replacement cards. When Son Heung-min did not hesitate to touch his knee for a while, the referee approached Son Heung-min and asked if he could run.
Son Heung-min is also a player who takes care of himself in his team Tottenham. Recently, I had a groin injury, so I didn’t play full time for 90 minutes. In this match against Vietnam, even if I wanted to rest, I couldn’t rest because I used up my replacement card.
