“Heung-min Son avoided a red card when it was clear he was going to be penalized”

It was an incomprehensible call.

Jürgen Klinsmann’s South Korea won 1-0 against Saudi Arabia in an A-match trial at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England, at 1:30 a.m. ET on Wednesday.

Son Heung-min exploded for a hat-trick in his last game for his former club Burnley FC. He has carried that form over to the national team, where he created seven chances.

On this occasion, Heung-min was even able to score an offensive point. In the 33rd minute, he found himself with a perfect one-on-one opportunity after getting behind the opposing defense. With the ball in play, a defender’s tackle hit Son’s ankle. Son went down, but no penalty was called.온라인카지노

Alasdair Gold, a journalist for the British publication Football London, also questioned the call. “The most obvious penalty I’ve ever seen for the South Korean national team wasn’t given, and the defender avoided a red card (for blocking a clear chance),” Gold wrote on social media that same day.
