‘Captain’ Heung-Min Son “I want to finish in the best form in the World Cup final qualifier”


As we approach the 2022 Qatar World Cup finals, Son Heung-min, the captain of the soccer team who made the turning point in the final qualifier, vowed to show his best in the remaining final qualifiers.

Heung-min Son, who was interviewed at the Paju national soccer team training center where the national team training was held, said, “Our work is not finished yet. The goal is of course to go to the World Cup, but I want to do well in the final qualifying until the end.”

Bentuho won 1-0 against the United Arab Emirates in the 5th match of the final qualifier held in Goyang on the 11th, finishing second in Group A and turning a turning point.

They are cruising towards the finals with a six-point gap with third-placed Lebanon.

Son Heung-min, who takes center stage as the team’s attack and captain, wants more than that.

Son Heung-min emphasized, “Personally, it is always difficult to play in the third final.

Heung-Min Son, who had been scoring goals for two consecutive games for the national team last month, had several opportunities with active movements against the United Arab Emirates, but failed to score, such as experiencing bad luck in the goalpost twice.

Son Heung-min said, “Rather than resenting the goal, I felt sorry for the team members. Opportunities don’t come often in the final qualifying round, but it was the first time that I had an opportunity like this and I missed it all.” I’m sorry I sent you,” he said.

Also, about the part where the national team doesn’t score well, he said, “We’re not trying to win 1-0, but we’re working hard. How anxious would it be if we scored one goal? “It’s important to win,” he said.

The national team will depart early tomorrow (14th) and play the 6th away game against Iraq in Doha, Qatar, on the 17th.

In the first leg match held at home in September last year, they drew without a goal.

Son Heung-min said, “Even though I couldn’t put the first button in the direction I wanted at that time, the players are doing well with their efforts. A trip to the Middle East is always difficult and it will be a difficult game this time too. I want to get what I want and finish this month’s schedule well.” chopped.
