Son Heung-min, a star player for Tottenham Hotspur, is presently in South Korea getting ready for this month’s World Cup qualifiers against China and Singapore.
The Taegeuk Warriors and Singapore play on Thursday, and the 31-year-old met with reporters prior to the game. Yonhap News Agency reports on his remarks.
The Tottenham player thinks that his background will assist the country get to the 2026 World Cup. He has also stated that he isn’t currently considering anything long-term.
“I’m just making every effort to the best of my ability in this role. I am living in the moment, not in the past or the future. “I’m just considering the two games,” he declared.
The senior players in South Korea have received a strong message from the Spurs attacker: support the national team throughout the qualifying matches.
“The World Cup is a long way away. There are moments when you have to navigate tough terrain and moments when you veer off the well-traveled path. Skilled players need to do a good job of guarding the team. Son said, “I’m hoping we can continue to do well until the end of the last qualifying round.
The attacker has already played for South Korea in the last three World Cups, making ten appearances while contributing three assists and three goals.
Son’s fitness was questioned following reports that he had suffered a groin injury during Tottenham’s 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers the previous weekend, according to YNA. He has refuted this suggestion and given a positive fitness update.
“During a game, someone may kick or tread on you. I occasionally kick myself. I’m in good physical condition, save from the fact that jet lag prevents me from sleeping,” he continued.
