  In the group match with Ghana, South Korea lost 2:3.

They currently only have 1 point, and it is conceivable from the difficulty of breaking through the group.

  After the game, "Asia's No. 1 brother" Sun Xingmin slumped on the court.

He took off the mask he wore for the entire game, and he couldn't hide his tears.

  Walking through the mixed interview area, Sun Xingmin met the former national team veteran Gu Zizhe who was waiting aside, and the two embraced for a long time.

  Also after this game, Sun Xingmin, who has been in poor form since the start of the World Cup in Qatar, was "stormed" by some South Korean fans.

Amidst the abuse, someone bluntly asked him to withdraw from the national team.

  "Why do you crawl out when you're sick..."

  "Sun Xingmin, you really can't do it. Why do you cry every day? I hope you don't participate in the next game. You don't even have the qualifications to be the captain."

  "Did you really decide to go all out when defending or playing? Don't cry. If you're going to run and cry, don't play."

  "To be honest, Sun Xingmin performed well in Tottenham Hotspur, but it is really not good in the national team. In the national team, Son Xingmin will never see each other again."


  Some words even insulted family members, which was really unsightly.

  But at the same time, some fans paid tribute to "Asia's No. 1 Brother", and they all said: You are already great, don't cry.

  "You played well, well done!"

  "It's really the best, the last game against Portugal, come on!"

  "Thank you for your hard work, thank you very much for your enthusiasm and sacrifice."

  Regarding Sun Xingmin's title of "Mask Man", we must start before the World Cup.

  On the eve of the start of the World Cup, in the UEFA Champions League group match between Tottenham and Marseille, Sun Xingmin hit the opponent's shoulder while fighting for a header and was replaced.

The injury was diagnosed as an orbital fracture of the left eye. In order to catch up with the World Cup, South Korea's top star underwent surgery earlier than planned.

  "The South Korean men's football team suffered a thunderbolt from the blue that Sun Xingmin was injured 17 days before the opening of the World Cup in Qatar." Yonhap News Agency commented on Sun Xingmin's injury.

  About a week before the start of the World Cup, the South Korean team announced the 26-man roster, and Sun Xingmin was selected due to injury.

He was approved to play in a protective mask.

  In fact, after Sun Xingmin completed the operation, Ki Sung-yong, the former captain of the South Korean national team, got in touch with him.

"His idea is that he will participate in the World Cup even if he plays with a mask on," Ki Sung-yong said.

  In Ji Chengyong's view, Sun Xingmin is the spiritual pillar of the South Korean team, and his name can pose a threat to opponents.

"Fans all over the world know him. The South Korean team cannot live without Sun Xingmin."

  It is not difficult to see between the lines that Sun Xingmin is of great significance to Korean football and Asian football.

To this end, he has worked hard for 22 years.

  Sun Xingmin's father, Sun Xiongzheng, was a football player when he was young. Sun Xingmin started to get in touch with football at the age of 8 and showed a strong interest in it.

  And Sun Xiongzheng is also eager to pin his football dream on his son, so he began to impose "devil training" on Sun Xingmin.

From the age of 8 to 15, Sun Xingmin had to practice at least 6 hours a day.

Shooting training and boring ball-juggling practice are unshakable.

  In order to balance the shooting ability of both feet, for a period of time, Son Xingmin has to practice 500 shots with his left and right feet every day.

  It is this kind of almost crazy training that allowed Sun Xingmin to develop excellent basic skills in his childhood.

  At the age of 16, he was spotted by a German scout and began his overseas life.

From Hamburg to Leverkusen, five years of experience in the Bundesliga gave him his own understanding of European football.

Sun Xingmin knows that he has the ability to go to a higher level league.

  In 2015, the Korean who showed his talents landed in the Premier League and joined Tottenham Hotspur. The two sides signed a five-year long contract.

The Tottenham team can provide Sun Xingmin with a stable chance to play, and it is also here that he realized the transformation from a star player to the "Light of Asia".

  After joining the team, he gradually secured his main position and realized his talent.

  Last season, Sun Xingmin won the Premier League Golden Boot with 23 goals, becoming the first Asian player to win the Golden Boot in the five major European leagues.

These goals all came from sports battles, and the gold content is self-evident.

In the previous 6 seasons, Sun Xingmin has never scored less than 18 goals.

  In this year's Golden Globe Awards, Sun Xingmin ranked 11th, breaking the record for the highest ranking of Asian players.

  As an Asian, Sun Xingmin's achievements are enough to conquer the top European leagues and enough to make fans all over the world remember his name.

  This is why Ji Chengyong made such praises to the juniors.

  With years of hard work experience, Sun Xingmin told everyone: Even if the physical condition is not dominant, Asians can play wonderful football.

As "Asia's No. 1 brother", Sun Xingmin may bring the word "confidence" the most to Asian football.

  This is the third time he has set foot on the World Cup stage.

In the previous two games, he scored 3 goals.

  "Too bad." Sun Xingmin said dejectedly after the game against Ghana.

For the result of the game, it can be seen that he is unacceptable.

Talking about the last round against the Portuguese team led by Ronaldo, Sun Xingmin said bluntly that he would go all out, "There is still the last group match, I don't know what will happen, but I hope there will be a good result."

  In the eyes of many professionals, in addition to the injury that has not yet healed, wearing a mask affects Sun Xingmin's vision while running, which interferes a lot with the players.

Although Sun Xingmin's performance in this World Cup is not as good as expected and his state is not at his best, this should not be the reason for the South Korean star to be "internet stormed".

Perhaps as a South Korean fan said, "It is a miracle in itself that Sun Xingmin can play the game after suffering a fractured eye."

  On the evening of December 2, Beijing time, the South Korean team will face the Portuguese team in the final round of the group stage. Only by winning can the "Tai Chi Tigers" gain hope of advancing.

  If there is no Sun Xingmin, do you think the South Korean team has a chance to create a miracle?
