The South Korean national team held an open training session after the game against Peru. The fans gathered in their droves to greet the players and showed a pleasant reaction. The team might have been in a bad mood after losing to Peru, but they were encouraged by their fans’ support.
The Korean national team lost 0-1 to Peru in the KEB Hana Bank Invitational National Team Friendly Match at the Asiad Stadium in Busan on the 16th. The team has yet to record its first win under Klinsmann, who was appointed after the World Cup.
They were unable to overcome an 11th-minute concession to Peru. Son Heung-min missed the game as he recovers from sports hernia surgery, with Lee Kang-in filling the void. Lee looked organized and threatening as a substitute, but was unable to find the back of the net.
Lee said, “There was no favorite part. I’m disappointed that the team didn’t win. Football is about winning. I wanted to win, but I’m very disappointed that we didn’t win. We will try to win the next game,” he said.
Despite the loss, the team held an open training session a day later. The team practiced shooting, basic physical training, and passing the ball in front of the fans. Many fans gathered in the hot weather, and their support helped the team to forget about the loss.
After the training, the fans were scheduled to get autographs from the national team players. When Hwang Hee-chan appeared, there was an unusual reaction in the stands. Female fans called him “Hee-chan,” while male fans shouted “Hee-chan, big brother.” Hwang Hee-chan responded with a smile and even took a camera to capture the fans in the stands. 메이저놀이터
Son Heung-min, who was unable to play in the game, showed a bright smile as he interacted with the fans. He signed autographs for each of them and later took off his training clothes to give them away. The fans reacted to his every move, and the open training session was a hit.
After the match against Peru, the squad had a short night out. They had time to relax and recharge with their teammates and families. The next match is against El Salvador at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium.
