Son Heung-min, Lee Young-pyo, and Hwang Sun-hong, who will be reborn as history, are also in sight


Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who is writing a new history of Korean soccer, will challenge the A-match record held by former Olympic team coach Hwang Sun-hong and KBS soccer commentator Lee Young-pyo.

Son Heung-min was listed on the 2026 FIFA North-Central America World Cup call-up list against Singapore (away) on June 6 and China (home) on June 11.

Son Heung-min, who played in both of his two consecutive games against Thailand in March, achieved 125 A matches and ranked fifth alone in this category, surpassing Kim Ho-gon, chairman of the Korea Football Association’s Soccer Love Sharing Foundation, and the late former coach Yoo Sang-chul (124 matches).

If Son Heung-min plays in both A matches in June, he will be ranked fourth with Lee Young-pyo in 127 matches. Lee Woon-jae, the soccer commentator, is the sole third-place finisher in this category with 133 matches, and if Son Heung-min plays in all six A matches scheduled from September to November, he can stand shoulder to shoulder with Lee.

South Korea’s most appearance in A matches is 136 matches held by Cha Bum-keun, former national soccer team coach, and Ulsan HD coach Hong Myung-bo. 먹튀검증

In terms of the number of goals scored, Son may be aiming for the second place. Son, who made his A-match debut goal in 2011 against India, has scored 46 points so far, ranking third in this category. He is four goals behind second-ranked coach Hwang Sun-hong (50 goals).

There is still a gap, but since Singapore and China are less objective than Korea, we can expect Son to score a large number of goals. In fact, Son scored three goals in the two consecutive games against Singapore and China last year, leading the team to win consecutive games.

Currently, the Korean national team’s most goals in A matches are held by former coach Cha Bum-keun and 58 goals.
