The first game of Group C was played. The game was played in chilly conditions, with rain falling before the South Korea-Singapore match, and Son made sure to take care of his escort kids. When he saw a child standing in front of him shivering in the cold, he took off his jacket and put it on the child’s body.
Spanish media outlet TUDN reported on the 18th, “Son Heung-min performed a beautiful gesture with a child before the match against Singapore. Tottenham’s captain and South Korean star Son Heung-min made a noble and beautiful gesture before the game,” and said, “Son Heung-min saw a child in front of him shivering in the cold and took off his training jacket and handed it to him.

After the game, Son Heung-min said, “It wasn’t an easy game regardless of the result. The players’ dedication and hard work paid off. It was a good training match. The first step is the most important, and I think we need to forget about this and prepare for the next one.”
Son Heung-min, who scored against Singapore with a threatening left-footed shot from the Son Heung-min zone, said, “I’ve practiced a lot and I’m always confident in that position. It may be a habit, but I was confident because I had practiced so much, and today, when I saw the trajectory and speed, I felt good and thought it would go in.”
In the Singapore match, Son Heung-min went down in the middle of the second half after a harsh foul by an opponent and went down with ankle pain. “I don’t like to lie on the field for a long time, but I felt a little numb. I’m fine now. All the players have a little bit of injury. Being called up to play for the national team is something I’ve dreamed of since childhood, and the World Cup is a process, so I can’t give up just because I’m sick. If I’m able to play, I’ll do my best to play,” he said.
South Korea will next face China on Sept. 21 in the second round of the North American World Cup second qualifying round after defeating Singapore.
