The South Korean national soccer team will take on Peru in an A-League match at the Asiad Stadium in Busan on June 16.
According to the FIFA rankings, Peru is 먹튀검증 ranked 21st and South Korea is ranked 27th. Peru is ranked higher than Korea.
Peru also has the edge in the all-time series. South Korea has never won a game against Peru, with two wins, one draw, and one loss. They’ve also never scored a goal against Peru. The first friendly was a 0-4 thrashing in 1971, and the second was a 0-0 draw in 2013.
With a higher FIFA ranking and a better all-time head-to-head record, Peru should be confident, but they’re not looking very confident right now. There is a crucial reason. It’s because of South Korea’s “number one” player.
As many might expect, it’s the presence of the world’s best player, Son Heung-min (Tottenham). Peruvian media, in particular, have been shocked to learn that the price tag for Heung-min alone is higher than the price tag for the entire Peruvian national team combined.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Peru’s Info Mercado. We have information that should surprise everyone. A single South Korean player is worth more than the entire Peruvian national team. It’s South Korea’s star, ace, and captain, Son Heung-min. He’s a forward for Tottenham. He’s a Tottenham striker with tons of speed and he’s two-footed.”
“He is one of the most famous soccer players in the world, but how much is he worth? Soccer statistics company Transfermarkt values him at €60 million ($83 billion). The Peruvian international is worth €35.55 million ($49.2 billion). “That’s almost double,” he said, expressing surprise.
