Tottenham fans want South Korea to lose against Saudi Arabia

Tottenham Hotspur fans are waiting for South Korea to lose to Saudi Arabia.

Tottenham lost 0-1 in the FA Cup round of 32 at the 2023-24 season against Manchester City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England, on the 27th. Tottenham, which has not lost to Manchester City at home since October 2018, suffered its first defeat as soon as Son Heung-min was absent.

Tottenham played 4-2-3-1 on the day. Guglielmo Vicario defended the goal. Pedro Pororo, Christian Romero, Mickey Panderpen, and Destiny Udogi were in charge of defense. Pierre-Emile Hoivier, Rodrigo Bentancur were in the midfield, while Dejan Kulusevski, Brennan Johnson, and Timo Werner were in the second line. The front line was Hisharlisson.

Empty balls continued throughout the game. While Manchester City was leading the flow of the game, there were occasional counterattacks, but the shooting failed. Tottenham recorded one shot in 90 minutes. On the other hand, Manchester City took a whopping 18 shots. This means that there was no player for Tottenham to finish the day.

Son Heung-min’s absence was inevitable. Until now, Son Heung-min has been particularly strong against Manchester City. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola had no choice but to admit Son Heung-min, making Manchester City cry countless times in their confrontations so far.

Since joining Tottenham, he has scored eight goals and four assists in 18 games, and Tottenham has had a head-to-head advantage with nine wins, two draws and seven losses. Son Heung-min, who led the team to a 2-0 win with one assist in the 2016-17 season, scored his first goal in the second half of the match, drawing a 2-2 draw.

In the 2018-19 season, the team crushed Manchester City in the Champions League. Son scored the finishing goal in the first leg of the quarterfinals to lead to a 1-0 victory, and in the second leg, he scored two goals away from Manchester City. Despite the 3-4 defeat, Tottenham advanced to the semifinals by overcoming Manchester City and advancing to the semifinals based on the rule of multiple goals in an away game, and quelled Ajax’s surge in the semifinals to advance to the final to secure the runner-up position.

He also scored one goal in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons to help them win 2-0, and in the 2021-22 season, he recorded two consecutive wins with one goal in their first half and two assists in their second half. This season, Son also had a dramatic 3-3 draw with one goal and one assist.

Tottenham’s home showdown since October 2018 was able to record five consecutive wins thanks to Son Heung-min’s presence, which led to a clear chance.

However, it was different this time. When Son Heung-min was absent, the weight of the attack dropped. He lost the ball helplessly to check Manchester City’s defense. He didn’t even have a chance to shoot properly, and he had a hard time approaching the Manchester City camp in the first place.

Tottenham fans are eager for Son Heung-min, who has been away from the team due to his participation in the Asian Cup, to return to the club as soon as possible.

The Evening Standard, a leading British newspaper, said, “The FA Cup elimination will give coach Anji Postecoglou something to think about. As Son Heung-min, who was a nuisance for Manchester City, played for the national team, Tottenham could hardly stage an attack.”

“In fact, Tottenham didn’t look like they would score at all. Mickey Pantherpen, Christian Romero, Timo Werner and James Maddison are back, but Son Heung-min, the most important player, is not available for the Asian Cup,” he said. “Son Heung-min scored in four of the five games that Manchester City lost, and he also shook the net in the recent showdown to make it a 3-3 draw.”

“The difference between then and now is whether Son Heung-min has the ability to create something out of nothing and finish almost anywhere around the box,” he added.

“Tottenham still needs a player to finish. The goal decider will be worryingly weak before Son returns,” the media said. “Korea will face Saudi Arabia in the round of 16 at the Asian Cup on Tuesday. It goes without saying that everyone related to Tottenham wants Korea to lose,” fans said, adding that Korea is waiting for Son to return soon after losing to Saudi Arabia.

The national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play Saudi Arabia in the round of 16 of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup at 1 a.m. on the 31st at Education City Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar.

The Korean national team, which was evaluated as the strongest member in history before the tournament and challenged for the Asian summit for the first time in 64 years, was in crisis throughout the three group games.

Attention is focusing on whether Son Heung-min will lead the national team’s victory against Saudi Arabia and continue his challenge for the championship, or whether he will kneel down to Saudi Arabia and return early as Tottenham fans hope. 토토사이트
