It took a long time to get the first win. In response to Klinsmann’s slow start, Captain Son Heung-min also worked harder than anyone else to change the atmosphere.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, saved Cho Kyu-sung’s winning goal and won 1-0 in an international match against Saudi Arabia held at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England on the 13th. Coach Klinsmann, who took office this year and had only 3 draws and 2 losses in 5 friendly matches, has finally recorded his first victory.바카라
Son Heung-min worked hard for Klinsmann’s first win. From the beginning, he was eager to score, attempting mid-range shots and trying to create opportunities for his teammates. Although he played with dedication throughout the game, he played so hard that his stamina showed a decline midway through the second half.
After the game against Saudi Arabia, Son Heung-min said, “It was a disappointing game that we won 1-0,” and “The first win is important, and I think it was a difficult first win, but I think Saudi Arabia also prepared a lot and played a good game. “He gave a general review.
Coach Klinsmann emphasized attacking soccer immediately after taking office. However, he has only 5 goals in 6 games, including against Saudi Arabia. At least this time, he showed off his offensive ability by recording 9 effective shots, but there are still many things to be desired.
Son Heung-min also said, “We had a lot of chances, but I think we could have had an easier game if we had scored a goal. That part is unfortunate. But what was important now was the first win. I hope we can go more positively through this result. “He expressed his position.
There is considerable public criticism towards Klinsmann due to the delayed victory. It is a pity that they have lost much of the potential that brought them to the round of 16 with active soccer in the Qatar World Cup just last year. Son Heung-min said, “I don’t think things will change overnight in terms of content,” adding, “We are continuing to move forward and there are important games in October as well. I think we can definitely do better, so I hope we improve.”
However, there is not much time left until the actual battle. The second qualifying round for the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asia region begins in November. And in January next year, Klinsmann will challenge to win the Asian Cup, which is his primary goal. In fact, the only evaluation matches are the two-game series against Tunisia and Vietnam that will be held at home next month.
Son Heung-min also emphasizes that there is not much time given. He said, “Actually, there is not much time left, and a lot can happen in two or three months. There is not as much time as we think, so I don’t know who will be called up in October, but we need to quickly understand the kind of football that the coach wants. It is important to put it into practice.” He said.
Meanwhile, Son Heung-min placed a huge ice pack on his knee before and after the game. The British media, seeing this, was busy checking whether Son Heung-min was injured. Fortunately, it was reported that there were no injuries. Still, Tottenham was surprised by Son Heung-min’s icing and knee taping, confirming his absolute influence.
