Son Heung-min, 30, is still waiting to see how he feels.

The South Korean national soccer team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann, lost 0-1 to Peru in an exhibition match at the Asiad Stadium in Busan on Saturday.

South Korea started with Kim Seung-gyu, Jung Seung-hyun, Park Ji-soo, Ahn Hyun-beom, Lee Ki-je, Hwang In-beom, Lee Jae-sung, Won Doo-jae, Lee Kang-in, Hwang Hee-chan, and Oh Hyun-gyu.

Son Heung-min was named to the substitutes list. It was a surprise exclusion. Head coach Jürgen Klinsmann revealed in his pre-match press conference that Son would not start. The reason: surgery. Son recently underwent surgery for a sports hernia. He is still recovering, so Klinsmann didn’t want to force him to start.토토사이트

He was available for the second half but did not play. Meanwhile, South Korea failed to score. Centered around Lee Kang-in and Hwang Hee-chan, Oh Hyun-gyu, Cho Kyu-sung, and Hwang Eui-jo all had chances to score, but they were unable to capitalize on crucial situations and eventually lost without a goal.

After the game, Son Heung-min said, “The players played under difficult circumstances. The result was unfortunate, but the players gained new experiences. Some of the players played together for the first time and there are many areas to improve, but there were also some good moments. I hope we can get a result next time.”

“I don’t know how I feel yet. It’s a shame I couldn’t show what I do best. I’ll talk to the coaching staff and see what happens until Tuesday.”
