The reason why only Son Heung-min was selected was revealed while the seven starters, including Hugo Lloris and Harry Kane, took a break.
In the 2022/23 FA Cup round of 32 match against Preston North End held at Deepdale Stadium in Preston, England on the 29th (Korean time), Tottenham won 3-0 with Son Heung-min’s multi-goal and Arnaut Danjuma’s debut goal. Reaped.
On this day, Son Heung-min, who started as a central striker instead of the left flank, started scoring after a long time. It was the first goal in about three weeks after the match against Crystal Palace on the 5th.
Son Heung-min, who played the ground for 85 minutes, recorded 100% shooting accuracy, 2 successful dribble breakthroughs, and 96% pass success rate as if to shake off the sluggishness that had continued throughout the season.
In fact, Son Heung-min was scheduled to take a break from the game that day. Tottenham gave rest to seven existing players, including Hugo Lloris, Harry Kane and Pierre-Emil Hoivier, in this game.
Tottenham’s plan was to give Son Heung-min a break, but he had no choice but to start. It was because of Hischarlisson’s injury.
Head coach Christian Stellini explained the reason for not giving Son Heung-min a break, saying, “Hischarlisson was unable to participate in this expedition due to an injury.”
Fortunately, it wasn’t a major injury. “It’s not a big deal,” Stellini added. “It should be fine in a few days.”
Hischarlisson, who joined Tottenham for a transfer fee of 60 million pounds (approximately 90 billion won) ahead of this season, has already missed many games due to injuries large and small. 스포츠토토
Right before the World Cup in Qatar, he was excluded from the squad for a month due to a calf injury, and after returning from the World Cup, he missed about two weeks due to a hamstring injury.
He recently appeared in three consecutive league matches against Arsenal, Manchester City and Fulham, and seemed to have returned safely from injury, but he is injured again and is unable to show an image worthy of his high ransom.
