[골닷컴, 파주] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = When Son Heung-min (Tottenham) appeared as a ‘surprise’, the attention of all the fans was immediate. Bentuho’s ‘Open Training’ today was even hotter because of his unexpected appearance.
The Korean national football team, led by coach Paulo Bento (Portugal), will gather at the Paju National Team Training Center (NFC) on the afternoon of the 19th and play two evaluation matches, followed by Costa Rica (Goyang Sports Complex) on the 23rd and Cameroon (Seoul World Cup Stadium) on the 27th He entered the elimination process ahead of time.
This evaluation match will be the last time to check the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, two months ahead of all members, including foreign players. In fact, it seems that the final list of the World Cup this time has been outlined, and at the same time, the best line is also expected to some extent.
However, some foreign players such as Kim Min-jae (Napoli) and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) were delayed due to their team’s schedule, so only 20 players participated in the training. Among them, the players who played full time in their team the day before focused on recovery training with light stretching. Only Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), Kwon Chang-hoon (Kim Cheon Sang-mu), Kim Seung-gyu (Al Shabab), Son Jun-ho (Shandong Taishan), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Jung Woo -young (Al Sadd), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) have started training seriously.
Training was held this day as ‘open training’ with the fans. Fans cheered enthusiastically, shouting the names of their favorite players from one side. However, I swallowed the disappointment because the national team was not complete, but I was relieved by Son Heung-min, who appeared ‘suddenly’ during training. Initially, Heung-Min Son was only expected to enter Paju NFC late at night. However, after arriving earlier than expected, he showed up in training clothes while the national team was training and waved his hand to greet him. Fans were busy taking out their cameras and taking pictures of Son Heung-min.
The training team finished after just over an hour of practice. After training, the players took a commemorative photo and greeted the fans at the end. In the process, Son Heung-min laughed when the fans asked for a click ceremony, saying, “No, no, no. You can only do that when you score a goal.”
