The South Korea captain has said that the game against Bahrain was just a small bump, but they will show full force against Qatar in the Quarterfinals.

South Korea had a very difficult time to beat Bahrain on Tuesday night at Rashid Stadium in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

Hwang Hee-chan scored the first goal of the match for the Asian Tigers at the 43-minute mark.

Then Mohamed Al Romaihi scored for Bahrain at the 77th minute.

And it was only in overtime when Kim Jin-su gave his team a victory by scoring in the 107th minute.

Now, South Korea captain Son Heung-min has vowed his team will be better as they take on Qatar in the Quarterfinals.

Son admits him and Gomes exchanged messages since the injury accident

Son Heung-Min was an instigator of an accidental challenge on Andre Gomes last week which saw the Portuguese suffer a serious ankle injury.

“We played against a team with so many players in defense and who play counter-attack. It’s not easy. It’s all about attitude as well and I’m a bit unhappy with our performance, as I think we’re better than that,” he told The Khaleej Times.

“We are looking forward to playing the quarterfinal. Of course, it’s going to be a very, very tough game like this.”

“We’re looking forward. We got the result. Sure, the performance was not great, but sometimes you take the result,” added the 26-year-old.

“It’s all about mentality, I think. If you think you’re tired.”

“Of course after the game, I feel tired, but still I try to recover as quickly as possible and play again,” he explained.

“In three days, I can recover. It’s the same when I play with Tottenham as well. I have to recover as quickly as possible and look forward to playing.”
