Son Heung-min ‘I scored the first goal!’

National team captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) scored in his first international match after ‘Table Tennis Gate’ and comforted fans who were upset by various controversies sweeping Korean soccer.

Son Heung-min scored the first goal to break the 0-0 score in the 42nd minute of the home game against Thailand in the 2026 FIFA North and Central America World Cup Asian 2nd qualifying round Group C 3rd match held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 21st.

Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), who penetrated the left side of the penalty area, converted a cutback with a left-footed shot to make it 1-0.

It is a meaningful goal for Son Heung-min.The match against Thailand is the first international match played while the national team has been reduced to Korea’s ‘problem child’, so both victory and performance are needed.

The national team was eliminated in the semifinals after a poor performance at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup under former coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

Afterwards, the shocking ‘Table Tennis Gate’ and ‘Card Gate’ became known one after another, raising eyebrows among the public. 파워볼사이트

It was a huge shock when it was revealed that captain Son Heung-min had a physical collision with Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who is considered the next generation of Korean soccer, on the eve of the Asian Cup semifinal match with Jordan.

Amidst the negative public opinion, Lee Kang-in visited London, England, where Son Heung-min was staying, and apologized, and on the 20th, while preparing for the match against Thailand, he even publicly expressed his feelings with the intention of ‘becoming a more exemplary person’ before the national team’s official training.

Son Heung-min also mentioned Lee Kang-in’s apology at the official press conference the day before, dismissed speculation surrounding the national team, and emphasized ‘one team’.

Son Heung-min ‘The captain solves the problem!’

Son Heung-min said, “I think it takes a lot of courage to apologize first, and I was proud as a team that Kangin showed such courage. I think we have an opportunity to come together.”

Son Heung-min, who assured that ‘the team atmosphere is not bad’, ‘scored’ like a goalscorer, appeasing the 60,000 spectators who visited the Seoul World Cup Stadium and the Korean soccer fans who were disappointed by various controversies.

While Lee Kang-in, who led the team’s attack in the Asian Cup, spent the first half on the bench, Son Heung-min turned the game, which had been in a lull, with a ‘one shot’.

‘Hwang Seon-hong-ho’, who struggled under Thailand’s strong pressure in the early part of the game, gradually regained possession of the ball, but was unable to score the desired score.

When Son Heung-min regained his presence by scoring a cool goal at the end of the first half, the fans went wild and chanted Son Heung-min’s name.

This is Son Heung-min’s 45th goal in his 124th A match.

Son Heung-min, who played as a starter on this day and tied for 5th place in international match appearances with the late Incheon United honorary coach Yoo Sang-cheol and Kim Ho-gon, chairman of the Korea Football Association Football Love Sharing Foundation, also narrowed the gap in total scores with ‘interim head coach’ coach Hwang Seon-hong.

Coach Hwang, who was a leading striker for the national team during his active career, scored 50 goals in 103 games and ranks second all-time in this category.Son Heung-min ranks third after former national soccer team coach Cha Bum-geun and coach Hwang. 온라인 슬롯
