Trends this WK: there is a lot of scored out a standard application, thanks to the VAR, there are more penalties than ever whistled, and Mexico is a not to be underestimated ploegje. After Germany won the El Tri is now relatively easy from South Korea. 1-2. The eighth-finals beckon, South Korea is allowed to go.
Who defends, threatens this world cup now and then for to be rewarded. That thought also South Korea. Quality is much too weak were against it even though not raucous Sweden, did coach Shin Tae-Yong against Mexico but a Iranneke. Or a Ijslandje, how you want to call it. Well retraction, a double-wall places and fast break when he could. The tactic did not even half-an-hour position. After 24 minutes, up popped Andres Guardado in his 150th international game on the edge of the sixteen, and he saw his cross was getoucheerd by the hand of Jang Hyun-Soo. Penalty kick, the fourteenth in this tournament. Already one more than in the entire previous world cup. Carlos Vela put the team credentials and stay up easily. Come out of your pipe, South Korea.
No mercy for Son
But that was not to be. The Asians stayed in their tight, defensive 4-4-2-theorem and there were barely off. Only star player Son Heung-Min could occasionally force. The attacker from Tottenham Hotspur has yet to need a top performance at an international tournament he wants a mandatory military service of 21 months outrun, but will be sorry not to find in Russia.
Because even after rest, there was no improvement. South Korea continued to be risk-free football. And when it is a bit out of her hut began to come, it was totally trashed. Just after the hour conquered Hector Herrera, the ball on the midfield – after a violation, that called and sent Hirving Lozano road towards the South Korean restverdediging, it’s only a two man strong. Easily found Lozano the vrijgelopen Javier Hernandez that his fiftieth goal for Mexico, with four matches is Chicharito also shared WORLDS topschutter for his country. Coach Juan Carlos Osorio made on the sidelines of a sign of the cross: the loot was inside.
A lot of followed there after all, not more. A pair of bills, the 148 th international competition of veteran Mexican Rafael Marquez and a reverie to the world cup 1998 when the legendary Cuauhtemoc Blanco in South Korea – Mexico, the world had become acquainted with his Blanco Bounce, dribble with the ball between the two feet is then pulled up. Such splendour was there in Rostov. Or maybe. Son Heung-Min tormented by the thought that he its peak value, in a South Korean regiment would have to spend caught up in injury time with a great bang. 1-2. Just still have hope, but in vain. Mexico won, sang and dreamed of all of the group’s profit. A ticket for a seventh quarter-final in a row is as good as within. If Germany immediately don’t win of Sweden, it is already a certainty. South Korea should go home. There will be the neutral viewer, not to grind, bang Son at regret.
