'Furious': Tottenham star spotted looking fuming in 75th minute of World Cup game today
Tottenham star Son Heung-min couldn’t prevent South Korea from losing 3-2 to Ghana during their latest World Cup clash. In the 75th minute of the contest, he cut a frustrated figure, looking desperately disgruntled with one of his teammates.
The result leaves Son on the brink of elimination from the competition. Paulo Bento’s team aren’t quite eliminated yet but they will need a big win over Portugal to stand any chance of qualification.
Tottenham’s star man is the poster boy of South Korean football. He is being forced to wear protective equipment on a fractured eye socket at this tournament and he’s yet to really get going in Qatar.
The 30-year-old is the captain of his country. He’s played over 100 times for South Korea and scored 35 goals as a full international, with big things expected from him at this World Cup.
Now, it looks as though Son will be making an early exit. That might not be such a bad thing for Tottenham, who will be desperate for him to get a well-deserved rest before the Premier League returns.
Today proved a deeply frustrating day for Son. In the 75th minute, Jonathan Pearce and Dion Dublin picked up some clear angst from the Tottenham star following a poor piece of play from one of his teammates.
It was claimed that three players were there to receive the ball but Dublin claimed that Son was furious at the quality of the ball out to him, which left him with no options in the sense of scoring a goal.
Tottenham star Son couldn’t prevent South Korea defeat
It’s deeply frustrating for Son. He probably knows in the back of his mind that he’s not completely fit and after failing to win in the opening two matches, South Korea are now on the brink.
The Tottenham man wears his heart on his sleeve. At the end of the contest, he was dejected to the point where he appeared to be crying out on the pitch.
Son can’t do everything on his own. The fact that he gets angry with his teammates, is merely because he will expect everyone to have the same standards as his own.
The Tottenham man will have to bring the magic when they finish their World Cup fixtures. Anything but a win and their participation at the year’s tournament will come to a premature end.
