Even the changes he did not work as the German forwards were either thwarted by the Korean defenders or wasted their chance.
But the killer blow was the goal in Injury time of the match when the Korean scored their first goal which was confirmed with the help of VAR and when the Germans pressed forward desperately for the goal to draw the match leaving their goal post unguarded,EPL player son scored through a long clearance and emphatically sealing the fate of the champions.
