After the game, Son Heung-min said, “I think the coach will answer” to the request, “Please evaluate this game with a score,” and said, “I always find it difficult to score.” Then, he said, “After the World Cup, we showed confidence against a strong team called Colombia.”
He went on to explain why he saved 30 points, saying, “The players should always do better without getting drunk in this atmosphere.” Son Heung-min also emphasized, “There are definitely areas to develop and improve today. With these (remaining) 30 points, we can become a perfect team.”
Son Heung-min was selected as the best player of the match (Man Of The Match, MOM).
Son Heung-min also set a rare record. It is a record of three consecutive goals in the A match against Colombia.
However, Son Heung-min was not very excited about various records. Son Heung-min said, “I feel a lot of responsibility for the team not winning more than individual goals. The coach would have wanted a good start, but I think the result of the match left me disappointed.” Regarding the free kick record, he added, “Actually, I’m not sure how much I put in. This kind of record is really good, but the team is more important than the record,” he added.
Regarding the leadership of coach Klinsman, who played the first game, Son Heung-min said, “The coach makes the players feel most comfortable. I think that part came out as it is on the pitch. If we go into the game with the intention of scoring more goals here, the result will be better.”
The national team will face Uruguay, the second opponent, during this A-match (match between national teams) at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th.
