Will ‘Korea’s captain’ Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) be able to play?
The national soccer team led by coach Jürgen Klinsmann will face Vietnam, ranked 95th in the FIFA rankings, at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th. Korea won 4-0 against Tunisia at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th thanks to Lee Kang-in’s multiple goals and Hwang Ui-jo’s key goal. Coach Klinsmann reported his first win in a row and his first win at home seven months after taking office. Korea aims for its third consecutive win against Vietnam.메이저놀이터
Ahead of the game, the Football Association announced, “41,000 seats at Suwon World Cup Stadium have been sold out in advance.” Three hours before the start of the game, so many fans had already gathered in the Suwon area that traffic was paralyzed.
There was a lot to see and enjoy. Fans spent time shopping for national soccer team cheering gear and snacking on snacks. The line to take pictures at the photo zone was long.
I met female fans Kim Hye-rin and Kim Do-yeon, who were wearing Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in uniforms side by side.
Hye-rin Kim said, “I like Seol Young-woo. She also likes Son Heung-min. I think it will come out today. Vietnamese players also said they expected Son Heung-min to play. “I wish I could run a little bit because it hurts,” she hoped.
Kim Do-yeon said, “I like Kim Min-jae, Lee Kang-in, and Son Heung-min. Lee Kang-in came wearing a PSG uniform. Lee Kang-in plays very well and has a lot of desire to play. Passionate. They are polite to their fans and even provide good fan service. “I was so happy that I scored two goals in the last game,” he said excitedly.
I asked for a prediction for the game. Fans said, “We expect 5-0. Minimum 5 goals. Son Heung-min will score two goals. Lee Kang-in also scored two goals. “I hope the rest of the players score evenly and win 6-0,” he said, looking forward to the match against Vietnam.
The starting list was announced ahead of the game. Korea will use its 100% full force against Vietnam. Son Heung-min returned to the starting lineup after taking a break against Tunisia due to groin pain. Korea has a top team of Cho Gyu-sung and a midfield of Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in, Lee Jae-seong, Hwang Hee-chan, and Park Yong-woo. The back four consists of Lee Ki-je, Kim Min-jae, Jeong Seung-hyun, and Seol Young-woo, and the goalkeeper is Cho Hyun-woo.
