Korea’s star player Son Heungmin (the Tottenham Hotspur forward) had undergone surgery after colliding with an opposite defender during a UEFA Champions League match. But, he was eager and ready to play in the World Cup with a face mask, which made him look like a superhero!

Korea’s best performance was at the 2002 World Cup, when Korea reached the semi final against Germany. Korea became the first Asian country to reach the semi-finals of a World Cup. The head coach, Guus Hiddink, became the first person to be given honorary Korean citizenship by hugely contributing to the team.
