<Anchor> The

national soccer team, Bentuho, was defeated 5-1 by Brazil, who ranked No. 1 in FIFA.

Heung-Min Son struggled, but it was not enough to handle the luxurious corps led by Neymar.

This is Correspondent Ha Seong-ryong.


The wall of 'complete' Brazil was too high to enjoy the world class match between Son Heung-min and Neymar.

Neymar, who led the luxury corps, showed brilliant individual skills when he caught the ball, shook the defense with an explosive sprint, and led his teammates to shoot with several exquisite passes, creating a sensation.

Neymar was substituted in response to the crowd's standing ovation in the 33rd minute of the second half after scoring two penalty kicks and giving a show with a dance ceremony.

[Nymar: I am happy that Korean fans are sending great support.

I didn't expect to receive such a warm welcome, but I really enjoyed it.]

On the other hand, Son Heung-min could hardly use his strength despite the support of about 64,000 spectators.

Passes for the build-up were cut off, isolated, and long-distance shots lost their power.

At the last minute, he took the ball directly and created an opportunity, but the mid-range shot of Hyo-sim caught a save and swallowed the disappointment.

[Heung-Min Son / Captain of the soccer team: We know that we are still lacking, and we will do our best to promise a day of laughter in the future.]

Hwang Ui-jo was able to score the first match in a year and avoided a 0 loss, but Bentuho, who lost his defensive center due to Kim Min-jae's injury, conceded five goals while making mistakes under Brazilian pressure.

Realizing the high walls of Brazil in terms of individual skill as well as speed and organization, he confirmed many homework assignments up to the World Cup finals.

[Paulo Bento/Soccer national team coach: It is a fair defeat.

There is too little time (until the World Cup) to change a lot right now.

You have to keep the style (build-up) now.]

Heung-min Son and Neymar, who did their best regardless of victory or defeat, hugged hotly after the match and exchanged uniforms and exchanged friendships.
