Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham) was unable to take a decisive free kick opportunity this time as well. It seems that he has been pushed to the bottom of the kicker ranking to the extent that he is standing near the defensive wall. Instead, Harry Kane’s free kick hit the defensive wall ‘without fail’ and the opportunity was destroyed.
Son Heung-min started in the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) round 21 away match against Fulham held at Kraven Cottage in London, England on the 24th at 5:15 am (Korean time) and got a direct free kick opportunity in the 43rd minute of the first half. .
After catching the ball on the right side of the arc, he tried to break through the dribble and was tripped by Tim Lim’s foul. It was a decisive opportunity to attempt a direct shot, outside the right side of the penalty box.
The free kick, however, was prepared by Kane and Ivan Perisic, not Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min, instead of taking the free kicker position, prepared a follow-up attack between the opposing defensive walls with other teammates. In other words, Son Heung-min was not even given a chance to prepare for a free kick.
In the meantime, even if I was standing with Kane, in the end, most of the kicks were kicked by Kane, but it was regrettable that I couldn’t even prepare for the kick. Son Heung-min’s role was only to prepare for the follow-up attack situation even with the opportunity he obtained, as well as having a sharp free-kick ability. 메이저사이트
Earlier, whenever Son Heung-min scored a free kick goal in a national team game, Tottenham’s direct free kick scoring rate was so low that it became a hot topic in England. However, Son Heung-min rarely received a free kick opportunity in his team, regardless of his sense of free kick goal in his national team. The unfortunate flow that continued continued to the point where they could not even prepare for a free kick that day.
Kane’s free kick as a kicker did not even threaten the opponent this time. The free kick kicked low and strong with his right foot fell in front of the defense after being blocked by the defensive wall. Kane, who has scored 199 goals in the EPL alone, has only scored one goal from free kicks.
On the other hand, Tottenham overcame Fulham 1-0 with Kane’s first winning goal assisted by Son Heung-min in the first half extra time. Son Heung-min and Kane started a ‘joint goal’ after a long time since October of last year. Son Heung-min’s assist is the third record this season.
