After what has likely seemed an eternity to most fans, Tottenham Hotspur is back to games on Wednesday, facing Team K-League; what can we expect?
Over 50 days ago, Spurs celebrated fourth place in the Premier League and a spot in this season’s UEFA Champions League. Now after an already eventful summer, with Spurs signing five new players, Tottenham are getting their preparations for the new season well underway, facing Team K-League in the first of two friendlies in the Coupang Play Series. With Spurs back underway to start a new campaign, here are five things we can expect from the match against Team K-League.
Son and Spurs will be well received at the game
Thanks mainly to the popularity of Heung-min Son, who is like a one-person K-pop band in his homeland, Tottenham Hotspur is a very popular team in Korea. Such is the favour of Son and Tottenham that the entire exhibition was designed as an invitation from Coupang – a Korean streaming service – to be able to provide special matches for their subscribers.
If you watched any of the videos of the team arriving at the airport, you could see a real passion for Spurs in the country, and we should expect that passion to be apparent on Wednesday.
We should expect a very engaged audience, that is, “oohing” and “ahhing” as the players perform their tasks. That engagement should help Spurs feel at home some 5,500 miles from N17. An engaged and enthusiastic set of fans is all anyone can ask for in a friendly, and the people of Seoul will deliver for Son and Spurs.
