Will Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) be able to play in the match against Tunisia?
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play the first match of the October evaluation against Tunisia at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th. Afterwards, the team will move to Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th and play the second match against Vietnam.
Son Heung-min boarded a plane to Korea as soon as he finished the game against Luton Town on the 7th. Son Heung-min, who returned to Korea on the afternoon of the 8th, entered Paju NFC at 2 pm on the 9th. Although he had a more tiring schedule than anyone else, his expression was bright. Son Heung-min took pictures and signed autographs for the fans.메이저사이트
However, his physical condition is not normal. His team, Tottenham, is also adjusting Son Heung-min’s playing time in consideration of his injury. The same goes for the national team. Son Heung-min was excluded from group training for three consecutive days until the 11th.
Son Heung-min is controlling his condition while riding a cycle, receiving massages, and intensively managing his injured area. On the 11th, Son Heung-min did not participate in outdoor training for the first time and only trained indoors.
An official from the Korea Football Association said, “Son Heung-min rode a cycle for three days in a row. He says he has no problems running and no pain. “He will listen to the team doctor’s opinion tomorrow and make a final decision on whether to play against Tunisia,” he said.
Except for Son Heung-min, all other players participated in group training. After warming up through stretching, the players went on a terrifying shuttle run. Cardiorespiratory power, endurance, and recovery were measured while running round trip for a set time. It was a state-of-the-art system in which a sensor attached to the chest automatically identified each athlete’s information and transmitted it to a computer.
The players were breathing heavily after making the 25th shuttle run. As expected from a national team player, he didn’t seem to be under much pressure. After completing the warm-up, the players started training with the ball in earnest.
