South Korea are back to winning ways following their victory over fellow Asians Qatar in a recent international friendly. The South Koreans had been on a winning run of three games before they were beaten by Mexico in the first of their two international games this month.

The two-time Asian champions had beaten Hong Kong, China and Japan on the back of the 3-0 loss to Brazil without conceding a goal. The three-match winning run was stopped by the 3-2 defeat to Mexico in an international friendly played in November. The Mexicans had to come from a goal down to beat South Korea who took a first half lead through Ui-Jo Hwang.

South Korea vs. Mexico Friendly Faceoff in November

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the sports world was going through a pause. All the national and international level tournaments were either postponed or abandoned. Football didn’t experience something different as it is also a body contact game. But after almost 6 months, everything is getting normalized with the “New Normal”; many of the sporting events have started again. As a part of this, South Korea is all set to play a friendly match with Mexico City. Before the Mexican football team gets to face harder opponents in the 2021 Gold Cup and then in the CONCACAF World Cup which is going to be held in Australia.

The record in the head to head games is actually weighty for Mexico. They have won 7 out of 13 matches they played against South Korea and drawn 2 matches, whereas South Korea has nothing to be upset with the stats. They are among the best teams in the Asia continent and the record against a regular football playing nation is not that bad for a less focused team. South Korea is a team that has the capacity to upset any team on their day.


Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min has revealed that he's doing very, very well. The South Korea international fractured his arm in February. He has been out of action since then.

With Eriksen finally getting the transfer he has wanted all season, Steve Bergwijn is said to be joining Tottenham any time soon and many believe it might even be for the best since the Dane has lost all desire to actually keep on putting his best in for Spurs.
It is however suspected Bergwijn might fight for Son’s position instead of actually replacing the departed Viking. The South Korea international has been a mainstay at the club since moving from Swansea city but just like how Christian Eriksen decided he’s had enough and would like to try his luck somewhere else in hopes of playing in a team that can actually compete for a title.
