South Korea’s captain Son Heung-min and Portugal’s captain Ronaldo.
The two players have one thing in common in that they are superstars who lead the team with the captain’s armband and go to the forefront wearing the number 7 side by side.
Heung-Min Son, who had picked Ronaldo as his idol since he was young..
[손흥민(지난 해 1월)]
“I want to meet Ronaldo. I want to ask him how he works out and talk about football.”
In no time, he has grown into a world-class player comparable to Ronaldo.
Coincidentally, it is similar that both players went through ups and downs ahead of this World Cup.
Son Heung-min was unable to even participate due to a facial injury, so he went out wearing a mask… Ronaldo is invincible after a conflict with his former team.
While Son Heung-min has yet to recover in perfect condition… Ronaldo is challenging the record for the most goals by a Portuguese player, following the record of scoring in five consecutive tournaments for the first time in history.
“We won, we played well. I helped the team. Nothing else matters. What matters now is Portugal.”
There is a prospect that Portugal will confirm their advance to the round of 16 and exclude the main players… But there is a good chance that the two players will face off as they need to secure first place in the group to avoid Brazil in the round of 16.
