Son Apologizes for South Korea's Surprising Asian Cup Exit
Posted on February 07, 2024
Tottenham star and South Korean skipper, Son Heung-min, profusely apologized in the aftermath of South Korea's shocking semi-final defeat to Jordan in the Asian Cup. The unexpected 2-0 loss to Jordan, ranked 64 slots beneath them in world rankings, was a turning point in what has otherwise been a historic journey for South Korea.
"Devastated about this result," confessed Son. He recognized Jordan's commendable performance in the tournament, acknowledging their fight until the end. Son admitted that the team was nervous and did not wish to make any errors, leading to a highly disappointing night.
This defeat marks an end to South Korea's aspirations to claim the Championship title, not held by them since 1960. South Korea, who found themselves on the brink of exit in the previous knockout rounds, had survived by netting equalisers in the second half's injury time.
However, they had no counter when Yazan Al-Naimat and Musa Al-Tamari scored for Jordan in the second half, leading to South Korea's exit. Jurgen Klinsmann's players rarely appeared capable of posing a goal-scoring threat.
Son Heung-min, who netted three goals in the tournament, apologized to Korean fans for not meeting their expectations. Committed to improving as a player, Son emphasized learning from the team's errors and vowed to assist the national team in advancing forward.
Despite the significant setback, Son remains focused. "We have to look forward, there is no time for regret," he said, stating his intent to return to his club and gear up for the rest of the season.
