Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) and Hee-Chan Hwang (Wolverhampton) greeted Jurgen Klinsmann, coach of the Korean national soccer team, on his visit to the English Premier League (EPL) by shooting side by side.
Son Heung-min scored the opening goal in the 14th minute of the first half in the 2022-23 EPL home game against Bournemouth, which ended at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 16th (Korean time). In a counterattack situation, Ivan Perisic caught the ball that Clement Lenglet passed from behind the half line to the left side of the opponent’s box at once, and turned the cutback, and Son Heung-min calmly finished it with his left foot. The shot hit the defense and was deflected, so the goalkeeper had no time to use his hands.
Son Heung-min, 바카라who scored his 100th EPL goal for the first time as an Asian player against Brighton on the 8th, scored two goals in a row for the first time this season and scored his eighth league goal. He also scored two goals to reach double digits for the 7th consecutive EPL season. Including the cup competitions and the European Champions League, it is 12 goals (4 assists) for the season.
Coach Klinsman, who visited England on the first schedule of the European inspection, watched Son Heung-min score on the field. Manager Klinsman is also a team senior who played an active part in Tottenham in the mid-to-late 1990s. Son Heung-min broke through more confidently that day, recorded 4 shots on the dribble, and often created opportunities for his teammates, such as delivering a kill pass to Harry Kane.
However, Tottenham lost 2-3 due to defensive anxiety. In the 35th minute of the first half, center back Langle was injured and it was decisive. This was followed by mistakes by right fullback Pedro Poro. In a situation where Tottenham was behind 1-2, they increased the number of attackers to as many as five, and managed to balance it with Arnaut Danjuma’s mid-range goal in the 43rd minute of the second half, but in the 50th minute of the second half, Watara hit a theater goal and finally knelt down.
Tottenham finished 5th with a record of 16 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses (53 points). It is three points behind Newcastle United in third place, who played one less game, and Manchester United in fourth place (more than 56 points), who played two less games.Hwang Hee-chan, who was unable to accompany Klinsmann’s departure due to injury, scored his second league goal in two games after returning from injury. Hwang Hee-chan was substituted in the 19th minute of the second half when the team was leading 1-0 in the home game against Brentford that day and scored the key goal in 5 minutes. Matheus Nunes swung down the right side of the opponent and penetrated into the box. It is the second goal in the league and the third goal in the official match, about a month after scoring against Newcastle in March.
