Korea was not satisfied with the four goals. Lee Kang-in, who received Son Heung-min’s pass near the box in the 25th minute of the second half, boldly fired a left-footed shot toward the corner of the goal even though he was a little far away. Lee Kang-in’s shot shook the net as it was, leading to South Korea’s fifth score.
Recently, Lee Kang-in showed off his excellent scoring sense in the national team. Lee Kang-in, who scored two goals, including a free-kick goal against Tunisia on the 13th, scored his A match debut goal and his second goal, immediately scored his third goal against Vietnam and scored two consecutive goals.
Jung Woo-young added one goal as he did his best until the end, with South Korea’s complete victory expected to end the game. Hwang Ui-jo (Norwich City) shot was blocked by the goalkeeper and flowed out, and Jung Woo-young displayed concentration and quickly put the ball into the net before crossing the line to make the score 6-0. 토토
With a great victory against Vietnam, South Korea succeeded in raising the team’s atmosphere ahead of the actual match by winning three consecutive A matches ahead of the second qualifying round for the 2026 FIFA North-Central U.S. World Cup, which begins in November.
Klinsmann, who attended the post-match press conference, said, “I’m glad our players showed such professional performance. I want to appreciate the players’ attitude and concentration in the game,” he said.
“We scored a lot, and I’m glad we got the result we wanted,” he said. “In fact, I think highly of what we have shown in training over the past 10 days following the match against Tunisia.”
“Now, the second qualifying round for the 2026 North and Central American World Cup will begin in November, and I am satisfied because I think we showed what we have been preparing for before that. It was a happy 10 days with the players,” he said, expressing joy.
Regarding Son Heung-min, who played full time as a starter on the day, he said, “I talked with Son Heung-min with the aim of playing 90 minutes. He said, “I ran for 90 minutes because he gave me an autograph that he was okay.”
“Son Heung-min himself played the game seriously and concentrated,” he said. “I think Son Heung-min will set an example as a captain, regardless of the opponent, and I think he played a good game as a team.” I’m glad Son Heung-min played for 90 minutes,” he said.
Regarding Vietnam, he also said, “It can be seen as an easy game with a lot of goals, but it was quite a difficult game. We made mistakes, but Vietnam also created many chances, he said. “I don’t know what the results will be if we play again tomorrow.” “I highly appreciate Vietnam, which has put everything into the ground, and I want to show respect,” he said, expressing his respect.
Regarding Hwang In-beom, who missed the match against Tunisia due to an internal muscle injury and was also on the bench against Vietnam, he explained, “I didn’t include him in the starting lineup to avoid risk because he said he didn’t feel 100%.”
Meanwhile, Klinsmann, who successfully completed his A-match schedule in October, explained that he plans to go to Europe immediately. He said, “I will go on a business trip to Europe over the weekend to watch the Munich-Mainz match to look at Lee Jae-sung and Kim Min-jae.”
Munich and Mainz booked the “Korean Derby” in the eighth round of the Bundesliga in the 2023/24 season in Mainz, Germany, on the 22nd.
“After the game, I will go home, take a rest, and come back to Korea to watch the FA Cup,” he said, expressing his intention to watch the FA Cup semifinals between Jeonbuk-Incheon and Jeju-Pohang on November 1.
“After that, I will go on a business trip to Singapore and Malaysia and watch the ACL (Asian Football Confederation Champions League) match. Singapore is an opponent for the second qualifying round for the World Cup in November, and I think I will see it with coach Cha Du-ri,” he said, signaling an Asian tour.
