Tottenham Hotspur have expressed their satisfaction with the performance of ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min.
Jürgen Klinsmann’s South Korea national football team recorded a 5-0 victory over Singapore in the first match of Group C of the second Asian qualifying round for the FIFA Confederations Cup North America 2026 at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The first step toward the 2026 World Cup. With a clear objective power differential, a dominant South Korean victory was expected. In fact, the team played almost a half-court game, as if to show off their superiority. In the first half, they were held back by their opponent’s tight defense and were unable to create much of anything, but a late goal from Cho Kyu-sung gave them the lead and allowed them to go into halftime with a comfortable lead.
The second half was a goal-fest. Hwang Hee-chan opened the scoring in the fourth minute of the second half, before Son Heung-min, Hwang Eui-jo, and Lee Kang-in added to the scoreline to make it 5-0. There were times when the opponent’s counterattacks almost left them exposed at the back, but they were able to keep a clean sheet with a solid defense led by Kim Min-jae.
Tottenham also took note of this game, as it featured their ‘captain’ Son Heung-min. He started the game and scored the team’s third goal in the 18th minute of the second half. A winding kick in front of the box. Many people were excited to see what could be called Son’s “signature shot”. 토토사이트
Tottenham were happy with their captain’s performance. They took to their official social media accounts to share a video of Son’s goal with the caption, “Son Special!”. They also posted a photo of him and Cho Kyu-sung doing a ceremony and wrote, “Nice one, Sony!” in praise.
Son Heung-min is in his second prime this season. He shook off last season’s slump to become a dominant scorer from the start, perfectly filling the void left by ‘ace’ Harry Kane. He’s thrived as a top player instead of his usual left winger position, and as captain, he’s become a moral anchor for the team on and off the field.
