Davinson Sanchez, a Tottenham teammate and Colombian national team defender, conveyed his faith in Son Heung-min.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 2-2 in an A-match evaluation match against Colombia held at Ulsan Munsu Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 24th.
Son Heung-min played a big role. In the 10th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min did not miss the opponent’s mistake and scored the opening goal with a fantastic left-footed kick. At the end of the first half, he shook the net by handling a free kick taken near the penalty box.
Although South Korea failed to win by conceding two goals in the second half, Son Heung-min’s performance was enough to earn applause. Son Heung-min scored the 36th and 37th goals of A-match at the same time, ranking third in the most points. He also topped the free kick scoring list with five goals and became the first player to score goals in three consecutive matches against a team from a continent other than Asia.
Son Heung-min said, “The responsibility for not winning is greater than the goal. The coach would have wanted a good start for his first game, but he is very disappointed with the result. I want to give 70 points for today’s match. 30 points is not conceited, it is a point to improve,” he said, expressing his regret for missing the victory.
However, Tottenham’s teammate Sanchez still highly rated Son Heung-min’s ability. Sanchez did not play in the game, but met with reporters and praised Son Heung-min. “He plays a lot at Tottenham,” said Sanchez. He is still a top class player for everyone on the team.”
“Compared to last season, this season is not good, but every player has good times and bad times. I think he will score again like he usually does.” Son Heung-min and Sanchez showed off their friendship by hugging after the match.

Sanchez said, “What can I say. We are just players.안전놀이터 It is clear that it is a difficult time for our squad and club as we have been eliminated from the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup.”
