[World Cup] Key Player Review: South Korea – Son Heung-Min

While Son is yet to sparkle at the international level, some of his performances for Bayer Leverkusen this season have been exceptional.

Starting from the left and cutting inside into goalscoring positions, his goal threat will be absolutely crucial considering Korea appear likely to field Park Chu-young, who rarely tests opposition goalkeepers, as their main striker.

Although there is good technical quality from the midfield, it’s tough to see where else Korea’s goals come from, and therefore Son is the difference between profligacy and a decent, effective side.
