Son’s arrival unable to inspire comeback win for South Korea

Asian Games Malaysia score upset win over champions South Korea

Son, 26, was released by Spurs for the tournament, which represents his final chance to avoid almost two years in military barracks - a serious setback to his career.

Highly rated 18-year-old striker Sung Hyang-sim lived up to her pre-tournament billing with two goals in the opening six minutes and four in the first half, while Kim Yun-mi netted a hat-trick as the World No 10 notched their biggest ever win at the Games.

Also through to the Round of 16 were Palestine, who confirmed their place despite a 1-1 draw with Hong Kong in Group A while Islamic Republic of Iran and Saudi Arabia are just a point away after scoring wins in Group F. "I regret that", Kim said through a translator.

South Korea, who had 2018 World Cup player Hwang Hee-Chan on their team, ramped up the attacks after that but failed to make any headway.

South Korea changed six players from the starting lineup against Bahrain in their opening match. "Because of today's result we've got a hard pathway to the finals".

South Korea's U-23 football team players react after surrendering a goal to Malaysia in a men's football match at the 18th Asian Games at Si Jalak Harupat Stadium in Bandung, Indonesia, on August 17, 2018.

He was a long way from there on Friday, when his belated start to the Asian Games ended in a 2-1 loss to Malaysia that left him feeling ashamed in front of 4,125 fans on the outskirts of Bandung, the capital of Indonesia's West Java province.

The 25-team tournament is not officially recognized by Federation Internationale de Football Association, but Tottenham allowed the 26-year-old Son to leave England after the 2-1 win at Newcastle.

"I should have controlled the game better and helped the (young) players in their mind controls — I feel a big responsibility for that", Son said.

Son missed South Korea's run to the Asian Games title in 2014 because he was not released by former club Bayer Leverkusen, adding to the pressure on him to win gold this time.

He said he'd warned the young squad when he arrived not to take any game for granted. "But the most important thing is that the players themselves recognize the problem".

"The coach told us before the match that we need to do our best and stay very disciplined, and now we must stay focused on our final group match, against Bahrain", responded Syahmi on Sunday in a text message.

As for Malaysia, they would go through as Group E winners regardless of their match result against Bahrain on Monday thanks to a superior head-to-head record. A loss against Kyrgyzstan, now in third with a draw and a loss, could force South Korea out of the tournament.
