After confirming that the goalkeeper was empty, Son Heung-min calmly kicked the shot with his left foot. The shot that drew a parabola was sucked into the goal and became the opening goal.
With this goal, Son Heung-min recorded the 36th goal in A match and tied for 3rd place with Park I-cheon. In second place is Hwang Seon-hong, the coach of the U23 national team with 50 goals. The top record is held by former national team coach Cha Bum-keun with 58 goals.
