World Cup 2022: Everything you need to know about South Korea

 

South Korea hasn’t gotten out of the group stage of the World Cup since 2010, but the group they’re in this year could yield them the knockout round.

South Korea has Ghana, Portugal and Uruguay on their docket, and one of the best players in the country’s history is ready to lead the nation to, at the very least, the knockout stage.

Son Heung-Min has starred at Tottenham in the Premier League. He suffered a facial injury against Marseille in the Champions League, but while there’s no exact return date, his appearance at training ahead of the first matchup should be a positive sign. Son had seven goals in World Cup qualifiers and two in the 2018 World Cup.
