Four Tottenham players, including Son Heung-min (31), Ben Davis (30), Brennan Johnson (22), and Joe Rodon (25), were seen playing in an international match together.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 0-0 with Wales in a friendly match held at Cardiff City Stadium in Wales, England, at 3:45 a.m. on the 8th (Korean time).
With Son Heung-min, Davis, Johnson, and Rodden starting side by side, a match between former and current Tottenham players was concluded. On this day, Son Heung-min played as a top two striker along with Cho Gyu-seong in a 4-4-2 formation. Wales formed a 5-3-3 formation, with Davis and Rodon playing central defense and Johnson acting as the two top strikers. In particular, Son Heung-min and Davis were in good spirits as they played the game wearing the captain’s armbands of Korea and Wales, respectively.
The result was a draw, but Wales had a better match. Korea was ahead in possession by about 6:4, but Wales was ahead in shooting by 11:4. Wales had 4 effective shots, while Korea had only 1.
Son Heung-min recorded three shots, including Korea’s only effective shot. In the 40th minute of the first half, Son Heung-min attempted a right-footed curling kick from outside the penalty box, but it went directly in front of the goalkeeper. As Korea was blocked by Wales’ cooperative defense and had difficulty developing attacks, Son Heung-min hit a left-footed mid-range shot in the 11th minute of the second half, but it missed the goal.
Tottenham showed interest in a match between former Tottenham players even before the game. The club said through its official channel, “Son Heung-min and Johnson will face off in Cardiff tonight.” Then, as the game started, he posted dignified photos of Son Heung-min and Davis wearing captain’s armbands.카지노
When the game ended, a video of Son Heung-min, Davis, Johnson, and Rodden taking a commemorative photo side by side was released. The four players are leaning against the wall side by side, smiling brightly and posing for a photo shoot. When filming is over, the video ends with Son Heung-min saying something to Roden.
Rodon is currently on loan from Tottenham to Leeds United. In a past interview, he revealed that he is a close friend of Son Heung-min and said, “Son Heung-min is a really great person. He helped me settle down well at Tottenham.”
Now the four players are preparing for the second international match in September. Korea will face Saudi Arabia at St. James Park in England on the 13th. Wales will play a Euro 2024 qualifying match against Latvia on the 12th.
