“Son Heung-min is a player who should have the most goals in Korean soccer.” Stork’s praise…Son Heung-min and Cha Boom exceed

“World Class” Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham) exceeds the milestone of Cha Bum-keun, former national team coach.

The national soccer team, led by interim coach Hwang Sun-hong, will play the fourth leg of Group C of the Asian qualifying round for the 2026 North-Central America World Cup against home team Thailand at 9:30 p.m. on the 26th (Korea Standard Time) at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

South Korea played a one-sided match in the third game at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 21st, but drew 1-1 with Thailand. South Korea, which has two wins and one draw, is leading the group, but must win away to restore its pride.

After arriving in Bangkok late at night on Tuesday, the Korean national team had its first training session at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday (local time). Son, who played full time in the first round match, joined the recovery group with Kim Min-jae and others, and focused on recovering his condition. Despite many difficulties, including long flights and jet lag, captain Son looked very cheerful. Son also greeted reporters brightly.

Son has more reasons to play well in the match against Thailand. Having scored in his last match, Son ranked third overall with his 45th A-match goal. Son is only five goals shy of 50 goals scored by Hwang Sun-hong, the second-highest scorer for the Korean national team. The most goals scored in an A-match was 55 goals scored by Cha Bum-keun.

With Son’s scoring face, it seems only a matter of time before he sets a new record for the most goals scored in the history of Korean soccer. There is another one who wants Son to score a cool goal in the match against Thailand. It is Hwang Sun-hong, the “stork” coach. 노래방알바

“(Son) Heung-min needs to break my record quickly. He is a player who needs to have the best record in Korea. I have high expectations. I think he will do well from now on,” Hwang said with a smile.

Coach Hwang Sun-hong couldn’t hide his satisfaction at his junior’s pursuit of his record. If Son Heung-min succeeds in scoring multiple points, Hwang Sun-hong is highly likely to win his first game.

Son has already broken Cha Bum-kun’s European league record for most goals. “Coach, I’m going to break that goal record,” Son’s remarks to Cha Bum-kun will become a reality soon.
