Son Double Leads South Korea To Victory Over China In WCup Qualifier

Captain Son Heung-min showcased his prowess by scoring twice and assisting in another goal as South Korea secured their second consecutive victory in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers with a convincing 3-0 win against China on Tuesday.
In front of a sold-out crowd exceeding 40,000 in Shenzhen, Son demonstrated his skills in the first half, converting a penalty for his initial goal and cleverly heading in a corner just before halftime for his second.
The match’s conclusion featured a decisive header by Jung Seung-hyun, courtesy of a Son free-kick, sealing the victory for South Korea in the dying minutes. With this win, South Korea sits comfortably atop Group C with a perfect record of six points.
Jurgen Klinsmann’s team had previously set the tone for their qualifying campaign with a dominant 5-0 victory against Singapore last week. The impressive performances underline South Korea’s strong start in their quest for a spot in the 2026 World Cup.
