It was an incomprehensible decision.
Korea, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, won 1-0 in the international match against Saudi Arabia (hereinafter referred to as Saudi Arabia) held at St. James Park in Newcastle, England, at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th (Korean time).
This is Son Heung-min, who scored a hat trick in the last game against Burnley FC for his former team. 메이저사이트That trend continued with his national team, and he played well on this day, creating only 7 chances.
On this day, Son Heung-min was even able to record an attack point. In the 33rd minute of the first half, he penetrated into the space behind the opponent’s defensive line and got a perfect one-on-one opportunity. In a situation where a goal was possible, the opposing defender’s tackle hit Son Heung-min’s ankle. Son Heung-min fell, but a penalty kick was not called.
Alesdair Gold, a journalist for the British media ‘Football London’, also expressed doubts. On the same day, Gold posted on his SNS, “The most obvious penalty kick I have ever seen in a Korean national team game (which Son Heung-min should have received) was not awarded. Also, the defender avoided the red card he should have received (blocking an obvious opportunity).” A statement was added to express this.
