Son scores as South Korea beat Thailand in WCup qualifier



Son Heung-min scored as South Korea eased to a 3-0 win over Thailand on Tuesday, taking them closer to the next round of World Cup qualification in Asia.

A sellout crowd of over 45 000 in Bangkok’s Rajamangala stadium were hoping for an upset after Thailand held South Korea to a shock 1-1 draw in Seoul last week.

But Son’s men kept their cool in hot, sticky conditions as Park Jin-seob and Lee Jae-sun joined the Tottenham Hotspur star on the scoresheet.

After a scrappy first half, brightened only by Lee’s goal, Son fired home the second from tight angle nine while Park sealed the win eight minutes from time.
