Thailand Defeated 3-0 by South Korea in World Cup Qualifier


In the World Cup qualifier Group C clash, Thailand faced a formidable South Korean team on home turf at Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok. Despite fervent efforts, the Thai squad succumbed to a 3-0 defeat on Tuesday evening.

From the onset, South Korea asserted dominance with possession, ultimately capitalizing on their control as Lee Jaesung converted a cross into an open goal in the 19th minute. Despite the fervent support of the crowd, including Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin and Thai K-pop sensation Lalisa “Lisa” Manoban, Thailand struggled to convert their opportunities, notably missing a free kick just before halftime.

Tottenham Hotspur’s captain, Son Heungmin, furthered Korea’s lead at the 54-minute mark, skillfully placing a pass from Lee Kangin into the net from the left side of the box. The situation worsened for Thailand as Park Jinseob netted another goal in the 83rd minute, capitalizing on a set-piece delivery from Kim Minjae.

Entering the match, the Thai team, ranked 101st globally, aimed to replicate the performance that secured them a 1-1 draw in Seoul. However, South Korea’s tactical adjustments proved decisive, showcasing their superiority and justifying their significantly higher position in the FIFA rankings, nearly 80 places above Thailand.
