Son makes instant impact
Tottenham Hotspur star, Son Heung-min, captained South Korea to a 2-0 win over China in the final Group C match of the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.
Son played a pivotal role as the two-time champions of Asia comfortably dispatched China thanks to goals from Hwang Ui-jo (14′) and Kim Min-Jae (51′).
South Korea, having won all of their group matches, will next face one of the best third-placed finishers from either group A, B or F in the Round of 16 next week.
Meanwhile coach Marcello Lippi’s China, who finished as runners-up in Group C, are set to go up against Thailand in the Knockout Phase this Sunday.
