It was an extremely disappointing World Cup for Tottenham Hotspur forward Son Heung-min. Yes, he scored two of South Korea’s three goals at the tournament in Russia, but his side didn’t advance beyond the group stages. Sure, the South Koreans upset #1 Germany 2-0, and in the process eliminated the defending champions, but the Sweden’s win over Mexico eliminated them.

Then, on top of that, Son and his team were pelted with eggs by ungrateful idiots when they returned home to Seoul.

A week before the World Cup started we looked at who Americans should adopt for this tournament, given how our own national side couldn’t be bothered enough to qualify. Specifically, we tossed out the ideas of supporting England or Mexico, and then realized supporting Mexico would be a terrible idea.

Seeing how poorly Landon Donovan’s #VamosMexico campaign has gone (who could have seen that coming, it’s not like we already knew how dull and flat Donovan is on camera), we were right in saying that Three Lions was the proper choice.

The formation on the note also infers that Rashford’s inclusion thus drops Raheem Sterling to the bench, and that Dele Alli will be missing due to injury and replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Southgate says we shouldn’t read too much into this document and that it doesn’t confirm any individual players statuses for Sunday.
