Son Heung-min took off his mask and smiled wide after 9 games… Hwang Hee-chan, Lee Kang-in, and Kim Min-jae were also very active.

Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) smiled widely after a long time. After nine games in the English Premier League (EPL), he scored a goal and wiped away his sluggishness. He removed his protective face mask and roared with joy.

Son Heung-min scored a key goal in an away game against Crystal Palace in the 19th round of the EPL in the 2022-23 season held at Selhurst Park in London, England on the 5th (Korean time) and helped to win 4-0. In the EPL, this is his first goal in four months since he scored a hat-trick (3 goals) as a substitute in the second half of the game against Leicester City last September. During the season, it has been three months since he scored two goals in the UEFA Champions League group stage match against Frankfurt (Germany) in October last year. It is the 4th goal in the league and the 6th goal of the season. 토토사이트

Tottenham struggled until the first half, not unlike the previous Aston Villa match (0-2 loss). Fortunately, as the first half was goalless, they launched a fierce counterattack in the second half. In the 3rd and 9th minutes of the second half, Harry Kane scored multiple goals with the help of Ivan Perisic and Brian Hill, respectively.

Son Heung-min’s offensive power also spewed fire. First, in the 22nd minute of the second half, a pass from the right flank to Matt Doherty led to a goal. However, it was not recorded as an assist for Son Heung-min as it was deflected after being hit by an opposing defender. The regret about the attack point was washed away cleanly by Son Heung-min himself, scoring his fourth goal. He received Kane’s pass from the back and rushed into the opponent’s goal, leading to the goal. Son Heung-min, as if he had been through a lot of heartache, roared as he took off his face mask, and smiled while doing a ‘click’ ceremony for the first time in a long time.

Congratulation from colleagues continued. Doherty, her same age, hugged Son Heung-min tightly, and Christian Romero was delighted by kissing Son Heung-min’s head. Kane also comforted Son Heung-min, who must have suffered from a ‘goal drought’. Son Heung-min said in an interview after the match, “I was really happy and happy the moment I scored a goal.” “Scoring is very important for regaining confidence. I want to help the team by scoring more goals in the upcoming games,” he said. “I hope today’s game will be a turning point.”

Son Heung-min and Kane wrote a new history by scoring that day. Kane scored 198 goals in 300 EPL appearances, ranking first in Tottenham’s all-time record. Son Heung-min was ranked second in the most goals with 97 goals in his EPL career. In addition, the two scored together in a total of 34 matches in the EPL, surpassing Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah-Sadio Mane (33 matches scored together) record for the most in the league. With Mane moving to Bayern Munich in Germany, the record of the ‘Son-Ke Duo’ is expected to continue.

Meanwhile, Kim Min-jae (Naples), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) also made a big success in a sortie. Lee Kang-in was substituted at the start of the second half of the match against Pontevedra in the round of 32 of the Copa del Rey (King’s Cup) in Spain and led the team to a 2-0 victory.

In the match against Inter Milan in Italy’s Serie A, Kim Min-jae showed off his ‘monster instinct’ by tying Romelu Lukaku tightly, even though the team suffered its first defeat (0-1). Hwang Hee-chan also played an active role in three consecutive starts against Aston Villa, but Wolverhampton drew 1-1 and secured only one point, failing to escape the relegation zone with 19th place in the league (14 points, 3 wins, 5 draws, 10 losses).
