Our soccer team, led by coach Bento, defeated Cameroon, the African powerhouse, with captain Heung-min Son (Tottenham), who scored the winning goal with his head in the final evaluation match played as a 'complete' ahead of the opening of the Qatar World Cup.
The national team won 1-0 against Cameroon at the Seoul World Cup Stadium with a header goal from Son Heung-min in the 35th minute of the first half.
Kim Jin-su (Jeonbuk) caught the ball that Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) pulled from the opponent's left flank between the defenders and connected it with a left-footed shot from the left inside the penalty area. He jumped and slammed it into his head.
With this, our national team, which drew 2-2 with Costa Rica at the Goyang Sports Complex on the 23rd, finished two A matches in September with 1 win and 1 draw.
These two friendly matches against Qatar World Cup finalists were the final test stage for Bento as an elite member of the European faction ahead of the Qatar World Cup starting in November.
The national team plans to hold one more evaluation match at the same time as the expedition ceremony in Korea before leaving for Qatar in November, but at this time, the European league is in season, so it has no choice but to convene the domestic K-League.
For Heung-Min Son, Hee-Chan Hwang, and Min-Jae Kim (Napoli), today's match against Cameroon was the last real battle they had at Bentu before the opening of the Qatar World Cup.
Son Heung-min, who led the draw with a free-kick equalizer against Costa Rica, returned to his team after scoring his 35th goal in two consecutive matches in A.
Cameroon is ranked 38th in the FIFA rankings, lower than Korea (28th), and missing some key players such as key striker Eric Maxim Chupomotting (Bayern Munich), midfielder Zambo Anguisa (Napoli), and defender Michael Ngaduungaju (Ghent). I did this evaluation with the military.
Korea recorded 3 wins and 2 draws against Cameroon.
