There was a lot of speculation over whether or not South Korea’s friendly against Mexico would go ahead yesterday evening after four players from the squad initially tested positive for COVID-19 before aanother two positive tests were confirmed just hours before kick-off.
Despite the positive cases, the game did go ahead, with Son Heung-min captaining his side but the Tottenham star could not stop his side from succumbing to a 3-2 defeat to the Mexicans.
However, Son did give his team the perfect start on the evening as he raced down the left flank and produced a perfect cross to pick out Bordeaux striker Hwang Ui-jow whose scuffed finish found its way past Mexican goalkeeper Hugo Gonzalez.
Watch the Tottenham forward’s assist for South Korea’s opener below:
[GOAL] 🇰🇷대한민국 1-0 🇲🇽멕시코
손흥민의 완벽 크로스, 황의조의 깔끔한 마무리!
전반 20분, 처음 찾아온 찬스를 놓치지않고
팀에 소중한 선제골을 선물합니다!

Since Son completed all ninety minutes in the friendly, Jose Mourinho will be hoping that the 28-year-old is rested for South Korea’s clash against Qatar on Tuesday.
