Tottenham star Son Heung-min was in tears at the full-time whistle after an emotionally-draining 3-2 loss for South Korea to Ghana in Group H of World Cup Qatar 2022.
espite his obvious emotional distress, one member of Ghana’s staff was still dead set on taking a picture with Son – regardless of the South Korean’s deep disappointment, with his country’s World Cup 2022 future now in the balance.
He came over to the Spurs striker and pointed his phone at him.
Son turned away from the official before a another member of the Ghana backroom staff urged the man to put his phone away.
They then attempted to check on the welfare of Son, but he simply wanted to be left alone.
South Korea’s World Cup dream took a major blow against Ghana on Monday.
After a 0-0 draw with Uruguay, a meeting with the tournament’s youngest team and one beaten by Portugal represented a genuine opportunity to claim a vital three points in Group H.
The Black Stars, however, ran out 3-2 winners in a dramatic win inside Doha’s Education City Stadium.
Ghana had raced into a two-goal lead before a second-half fightback from South Korea levelled the scores around the hour mark.
Two wonderful headers from Cho Gue-sung had given the Taegeuk Warriors a strong platform, but Ajax’s Mohammed Kudus second goal of the game ensured a famous Ghanian victory.
The result leaves South Korea’s destiny out of their own hands heading into their clash with Portugal.
Therefore, not the perfect opportunity to snap a selfie with Tottenham star Son.
South Korea’s final group stage match comes against Portugal on Friday. Ghana’s third game is against Uruguay on the same evening
