Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who was criticized for his sluggish performance, fired a flare for revival.
Tottenham won 3-0 in the round of 32 of the FA Cup in the 2022-23 season against Preston North End FC (second division) held at Preston Deepdale Stadium in England on the 29th of last month. With this victory, Tottenham has secured a place in the round of 16.
Son Heung-min started and was responsible for the team’s victory. He scored the opening goal in the 5th minute of the second half with a fantastic left-footed mid-range shot, and reported multiple goals in the 14th minute of the second half with another fantastic left-footed turning shot. It was the moment when Son Heung-min’s 7th and 8th goals of the season and 11 attack points (8 goals and 3 assists) of the season appeared.
The British press, which was full of criticism, filled it with praise. England’s ‘Football London’ described him as a ‘Super Son’. Tottenham fans who filled the stadium also responded with a ‘standing ovation’ when Son Heung-min left in the 39th minute of the second half.
Now is the time for Son Heung-min, who has finished warming up against the second division, to launch a true resurrection. It is a big match against Manchester City, which will be held on the 6th. It is the best game for Son Heung-min to announce a perfect resurrection. 스포츠토토
There is a media that emphasized to pay attention to Son Heung-min in this game. In particular, it was expected that Son Heung-min would be stimulated by the recruitment of Arnaud Danjuma and show more active movements.
As Son Heung-min’s sluggishness continued, Danjuma was evaluated as a substitute that could fill Son Heung-min’s sluggishness. Some media even predicted that Son Heung-min could lose his starting position to Danjuma. It created a situation where Son Heung-min had no choice but to be stimulated.
England’s ‘football365’ said, “Recently, Tottenham has struggled alone with Harry Kane. Son Heung-min has been sluggish. Tottenham obviously needs the old Son Heung-min to come back.”
The media continued, “In the last game against Preston, Son Heung-min was the most active of the strikers. It was a performance that could give strength to coach Conte. Skillful touch and bold finish, it seemed like the old Son Heung-min was back. Son Heung-min should also show against Man City. With Danjuma and Richarlison waiting, we have to show that this kind of performance is sustainable.”
