Son Heung-min did not even manage a single shot as Jordan beat South Korea to reach the final of the Asian Cup 2023 for the first time.
Second-half strikes from Yazan Al Naimat and Mousa Al-Taamari ended the hopes of Son Heung-min and his teammates at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Tuesday.
Jordan dominated from the start, with near misses from Hwang In-beom and Lee Jae-sung – and a penalty rightly overturned after VAR review – all rallying pre-tournament favorites South Korea. The son didn’t even have a wound.
The quality of Al Naimat and Al-Taamari shone through and Jordan, backed by loud support, will now face Iran or holders and hosts Qatar in Saturday’s final.
