“Son Heung-min is in a situation where he has to soothe his anger.”
Offside Nausea against Stoke City
No VAR, monumental goal lost
Goal hunting again during the 3rd row of Hell
The British Guardian represented Son Heung-min (28), who scored the 100th goal for Tottenham with a regrettable offside decision. Son Heung-min stepped on the ground at the start of the second half of the Stoke City away match in the 2020-21 season Carabao Cup (League Cup) held on the 24th (Korean time). After receiving a pass from Harry Kane in the 31st minute of the second half, Son Heung-min digs into the left side of the penalty box and hits the goalkeeper with the ball with his right foot in a one-on-one situation. However, the referee declared offside. There was an opponent in a position in front of Son Heung-min, so it looked like onside. Son Heung-min also appealed as “onside.”
The decision could have been reversed after going through a video reading (VAR). However, in the case of the Carabao Cup, VAR is enforced only when the game is held at the home stadium of the Premier League (1st division) team. Unlike Tottenham, the home team Stoke City is a second division team. There was no way to reverse the decision. Son Heung-min, who has scored 99 goals after joining Tottenham in 2015, pushed his 100 goals to the next opportunity. The BBC said, “Son Heung-min was right. The replay proves he was onside, but there is no VAR.” Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho said, “If there was a VAR, Son Heung-min’s goal would have been recognized, but of course it was worth it,” he regretted. Tottenham beat Stoke City 3-1 to advance to the semi-finals.
Son Heung-min is regretting and challenges the 100th goal once again in the three consecutive matches of’Boxing Day (December 26th)’. Boxing Day is a national holiday in the Commonwealth of the Commonwealth, and is a day for gifts to family and acquaintances. The name is taken from the gift’box’. From this day on, the Premier League will play’Three Strikes of Hell’ every 2-3 days. This is an important three-game match not only for Son Heung-min but also for Tottenham. It took a while to return to the top. Tottenham lost in a row against Liverpool in Round 13 (1-2) and Leicester City in Round 14 (0-2). The ranking quickly fell from the top to sixth. Boxing Day should be the starting point.
Heung-min Son, tied for second in league scoring (11 goals), is a key striker carrying Tottenham’s fate for the season. Coach Morinyu, who knows this well, tried to relieve Son Heung-min’s fatigue by taking a break in the first half of the match against Stoke City. Tottenham will face Wolverhampton (28th)-Fulham (31st)-Leeds United (January 2nd) in turn.
On the other hand, France Lieutenant (Part 1) Bordeaux striker Hwang Eui-jo (28) resumed the scoring after two games. Hwang Eui-jo scored a make-up goal in the second half of the 28th minute behind 0-2 against the 17th round Stadres. League 2 goal. The first goal was scored in the 15th round against Saint-Etienne on the 7th. Bordeaux lost 1-3. After completing the 2020 schedule, Hwang Eui-jo will go on a goal hunt against FC Mes on January 7th next year.
