Writing Our Own Destiny Let’s Support Our Athletes In The Asian Games A Tata Salt Tribute

Son agreed to play with South Korea at the pan-Asia quadrennial event as one of three overage players allowed in the squad in a final attempt at avoiding a spell of mandatory military service that could harm his Premier League career with Tottenham Hotspur.

South Korea beat Vietnam 3-1 in the semifinal at the Pakan Sari Stadium outside Jakarta Thursday to set up the life-changing finale.

Standing in his way are the winners of the second semi-final between Japan and United Arab Emirates in Indonesia.

Son said neither he nor his teammates felt any pressure.

"That's why even though we had to cross such a distance, are exhausted and had to pay a lot of money, we are here today", added the 40-year-old. "I think we are better players so we dominated the game".

Tornado warnings in effect for parts of the province
Tornado warnings began ending in the Barrie area around 8:30, while those for Orillia and through Washago ended shortly after 9pm. However, there are still heat and severe thunderstorm warnings, as well as severe thunderstorm watches, as of 12:45 a.m.

The match was controlled by the Koreans right from the first whistle and they got into an early lead through Lee Seung-woo's shot inside the Vietname's penalty box in the 7th minute of the match.

Hwang made amends just before the half-hour when Son fed him a through pass which he chipped over goalkeeper Bui Tien Dung.

Lee stabbed in his second, and his team's third, 10 minutes after the interval before Vietnam pulled one back through a dipping free kick from Tran Minh Vuong with 20 minutes left.

Asked about the upcoming final, Son said he and his teammates felt no pressure over the game. "We're fighting for that". "We fight for that, I don't need to say anything, you know".
