The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, won 6-0 with Kim Min-jae’s first goal and Hwang Hee-chan, Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in and Jung Woo-young’s additional goals against Vietnam ranked 95th in the FIFA rankings at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th. Korea won two games on its home turf in October, and won three consecutive A matches.
In the 5th minute of the first half, Lee Kang-in scored a cross that made Kim Min-jae’s header first goal in a corner kick situation. Kim Min-jae scored his first goal with his head without making any mistakes. Lee Kang-in, the star of the multi-goal match against Tunisia, scored again this time. Lee Kang-in scored Son Heung-min’s pass in the 25th minute of the second half when South Korea led 4-0. Lee Kang-in shone the most with three goals and one assist in two games. 토토사이트
After the game, Lee Kang-in said, “I’m so happy to win and I’m grateful to my teammates who played hard. In every game, he always tries and challenges to score and assist, even if he is not a goaltender. But the most important thing is the team’s victory. So I’m happy,” he said with a smile.
The Vietnamese players demanded Korean stars to exchange uniforms and sign autographs, although they suffered a crushing defeat by six goals. Lee Kang-in also laughed, saying, “Player 17 asked for a uniform.”
As it turned out, Vietnam’s 17th player was Vietnamese left-back Bo Min Trong (22). At the same age as Lee Kang-in, he was about 170 centimeters tall. He admired Lee Kang-in, a player who took an elite course in Vietnam, but is the same age and already plays for a global big club.
Coincidentally, Bo Min Trong scored an own goal in the 5th minute of the second half while trying to block Son Heung-min’s cross from going to Cho Kyu-sung. Throughout the game, Vietnam struggled due to Korea’s physical and speed.
Vietnam coach Philip Trussier said, “We were a challenge for South Korea, which is tactically and physically strong. Korea is such a good team that the 6-0 defeat is not surprising. Our players fought well against the world class and did their best,” he said, encouraging his country’s players.
