On the 6th at 9pm in Singapore for the 5th round of the World Cup 2nd qualifying round, Son Heung-min aims for 3 consecutive goals in the A match. Bae Jun-ho and others expected to debut

The Korean national soccer team aims to advance to the final preliminary round at the FIFA 2026 North, Central and American World Cup Asia Region 2nd qualifying away match held tomorrow in Singapore.

The national soccer team, led by interim coach Kim Do-hoon, will play an away game in the 5th match of Group C of the North, Central and American World Cup Asia 2nd qualifying round group stage against Singapore at the Singapore National Stadium at 9 p.m. on the 6th (Korean time).

Until the 4th game, Korea has recorded 3 wins and 1 draw (10 points) and is in first place in the group ahead of China (7 points), Thailand (4 points), and Singapore (1 point).

The point gap with 3rd place Thailand has widened to 6 points, so even if a draw is achieved in Singapore, the 1st and 2nd place in each group will receive the right to advance to the 3rd preliminary round regardless of the result of the final 6th match against China.

Even if Thailand loses to Singapore, if Thailand does not score a point, Korea will advance to the third round of the preliminary round.

Korean soccer, unable to find a new head coach after former coach Jurgen Klinsmann stepped down early this year, taking responsibility for neglecting the team’s infighting and elimination from the quarterfinals of the 2023 Qatar World Cup Asian Cup, was 23 years old at the time of the two-game World Cup 2nd qualifying round match against Thailand in March. Hwang Seon-hong, who led the U-23 national team, was appointed as interim coach. 파워볼사이트

The 5th and 6th games will be temporarily led by coach Kim Do-hoon, who was previously in charge of K-League 1 Ulsan HD. Coach Kim, who led Lion City, a prestigious Singapore professional soccer team, from 2021 to 2022, is a leader who knows Singapore soccer well. He directly coached key players of the Singapore national team, including Korean-born naturalized striker Song Eui-young (Lion City). Korean soccer star Son Heung-min is expected to lead the attack against Singapore. As Tottenham’s captain in the 2023-2024 season, he boasted an excellent sense of goal, scoring 17 goals and 10 assists on the English Premier League (EP) stage. With 10 goals and 10 assists for the third time in his career, it is the 6th all-time record in the EPL. He also has good decision making skills in the national team. He scored goals in the home game against Singapore (1 goal) and away game against China (2 goals) last November, and in the home game (1 goal) and away game against Thailand (1 goal) in March this year. So far, he has scored 46 goals in 125 A matches, and is aiming for 3 consecutive goals in this game against Singapore. If they succeed in scoring against Singapore, they will approach the record of Daejeon Hana Citizen coach Hwang Seon-hong (50 goals), who is second in scoring the most goals in a Korean soccer A match. The top scorer is former national soccer team coach Cha Bum-geun (58 goals). Seven new faces who joined the A national team for the first time after being selected by interim coach Kim Do-hoon also attract attention. Midfielders Bae Jun-ho (Stoke City), who played a big role in the English Championship (Second Division), Oh Se-hoon (Machida Zelvia), Hwang Jae-won (Daegu), Choi Jun (Seoul), Hwang In-jae (Pohang), Park Seung-wook (Gimcheon), Ha Chang-rae (Nagoya) is preparing for a surprise appearance. In particular, the biggest concern is who will replace attacker Cho Gyu-seong (Midtjylland) and defender Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), who missed this call-up due to injuries and surgery. Korea, ranked 23rd in the FIFA rankings, is significantly ahead of Singapore, ranked 155th, with a record of 22 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses. In the first match held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on November 16 last year, they won 5-0. Meanwhile, Kim Do-hoon, who left the country through Incheon International Airport on the 2nd, underwent local adaptation training for 3-4 days. 한국야동
