The football team was assembled, before the evaluation match against Costa Rica and Cameroon, at the Paju national training center.
Son Heung-min, who returned to Korea after achieving a desirable hat-trick, ran to Paju without a break to meet his teammates.
Reporter Heo Jae-won reports.
Under the clear autumn sky, the national team players selected by coach Bento enter the national training center one by one.

Na Sang-ho, who was worried about an ankle injury, also joined the national team with a glowing expression amid the enthusiastic support of the fans.
Yang Hyun-joon, who was named to the national team for the first time in his life, showed strong determination.

Bento, who has been criticized for being monotonous in terms of tactics and player placement, predicted a different game execution in this evaluation match.
[파울루 벤투 / 축구 대표팀 감독 : 물론 우리 팀의 경기 스타일을 최대한 발전시키는 데 중점을 두겠지만, 조금 다른 방식의 경기를 시도하려고 합니다.]
When the training ended, Son Heung-min, who was supposed to join the next day, made a surprise appearance, and the fans guarding the training ground cheered loudly.
As soon as he arrived at the airport, Son Heung-min, who rushed to Paju without a break, greeted his colleagues as he walked around the training ground.
The national football team will play two evaluation matches against Costa Rica on the 23rd and Cameroon on the 27th.
These two games are the last chance for Europeans to join the team before the World Cup finals, so Bento will almost complete the final entry to the World Cup through these two games.
