The most popular team is definitely Korea…Son Heung-min and Klinsman are crowded

The most popular team at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup is definitely Korea. From legendary coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who has left a big mark in the world’s soccer history, to players like Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), there are players who cannot be seen in Asia.

Korea was also able to realize its popularity in the match against Bahrain, which made its first appearance in the tournament. In particular, foreign media showed great interest in Son Heung-min and Klinsmann. The Korean national soccer team led by Coach Klinsmann won the first Group E match against Bahrain 3-1 at the Jasim bin Hamad Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 15th (Korea time). 토토사이트 추천

Not only Korean fans but also fans of various nationalities, including Singapore, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Thailand and Qatar, watched the match. Most of the overseas fans cheer for Korea by wearing Tottenham or national team uniforms with Son Heung-min’s name on them. In addition, reporters from various countries, including Qatar, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Thailand and Oman, visited the stadium to watch Korea.

There are some famous players from Europe, including Kim Min-jae, Lee Kang-in, and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), but the media also paid attention to him. Son boasts top-notch skills to the point where he became the top scorer in the world’s most popular English Premier League (EPL). He is a star who represents Asia beyond Korea.

When Son Heung-min appeared in the mixed zone after the game, multinational reporters flocked to him. When about 30 reporters gathered, Son Heung-min, who was trying to leave the stadium, paused for a moment and took an interview.

“It’s good rather than burdensome. It’s fun as a player to get a lot of attention. I especially like that I can show my skills to many fans,” Son said deftly accepting his attention.

Klinsmann’s popularity is no less than Son. A legendary German striker who won the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championship, Klinsmann is driving reporters around.

Numerous reporters gathered at the Main Media Center (MMC), where a pre-match press conference was held, to watch Klinsmann. Foreign reporters who visited Korea’s first game also showed keen interest in him, approaching Klinsmann after the official press conference was over and asking him to take a photo.

Korea, along with Japan, is considered to have the highest chance of winning the championship. However, foreign media seem to think Japan has a slightly higher chance of winning the championship. However, there seems to be no team that can match Korea in terms of popularity and attention.
