This is Sports Chosun Dotcom Reporter] Son Heung-min (Tottenham) scored his 200th goal in Europe. Son Heung-min scored the first goal in the 36th minute of the first half in Liverpool’s seventh round match of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2023-2024 season against Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on the afternoon of the 30th (local time). Tottenham won 2-1 against Liverpool, who missed two due to the exit. Son Heung-min was substituted after playing 69 minutes.
After the game, I met Son Heung-min. Regarding his 200th goal record, he said, “I am grateful to have this opportunity,” adding, “Many people love it.” I’m always thinking about how to repay them. I will do my best to raise the status of the Republic of Korea.
Congratulations on winning against Liverpool. Finally, we won against Liverpool.
▶I think the victory became more special because I scored a goal in the last attack in two consecutive home games. I was really impressed by the players’ sacrificial spirit and the way they didn’t give up until the end. I want to say thank you to all the players and the fans for their hard work.
He scored his 200th goal in Europe. I think it’s going to have a special meaningful.
▶ To be honest, I think this much time has passed. I’m so thankful. In fact, I always think that even getting this opportunity is my dream to play in the Premier League, play in the Bundesliga, and play for the national team. I don’t think I’ve always achieved my dream, but I think I’m always looking for that dream. You’ve been so lucky for a lot of time, and I think these times have definitely made me in good and bad situations.
So I want to say thank you so much to everyone who created the situation. I think the love that our soccer fans give me is very special. Before I was a soccer player, I received so much love that I wondered if I could really get this much love as another person. I always think about how I can always give this back and what kind of joy I can give to soccer fans and the Korean people.
It’s Chuseok, and I’m sure it’s not a lot of happiness because of my goal. I’m so happy that we gave you a little bit of happiness. Actually, as a soccer player, I can’t guarantee how far I’ll go. I’ll try to make the fans happy in every given situation, and I hope you enjoy watching me like now.
It’s my own greed to enjoy it and ask for more love. It’s very special to score many goals like this as a Korean, and I’ll always do my best to raise the status of the Republic of Korea, being a Korean, Korean, and Korean players.
I ran for 69 minutes. It was replaced early. I’m worried about my physical condition. 토토사이트
▶ Actually, next week’s game is in a week, so I think it’ll be okay. As the director said, I wasn’t in 100% physical condition, so I think the director kept watching the situation. Yesterday, there were similar situations while training, but the director asked if I would be okay, so I said, “I can say it’s okay.” I think the director knows my style. I’m sure I won’t tell you, and I think you know how special I feel about this team.
The director decided to replace it. In fact, there are times when it’s a shame to come out so early in the game. There are times when I feel like I want to run more. But obviously for the team, other players go in and refresh instead of me. I thought I could definitely create a situation that could change the game. I think Solomon went in and played an impactful game.
So I did my best for 60, 60, 67, 70 minutes without being 100%. I really tried to play one more step for the team. I think the director wanted me to do my best and do my best when others touch the baton like a relay runner. The director clearly had an idea and saw it in person, so he made that decision and followed.
