The K-League All-Star players face Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League in a friendly match at the World Cup Stadium in Seoul on Wednesday evening.
At a press conference on Tuesday, the Korean players expressed confidence that they could beat Tottenham, one of the best clubs in the world.
"I'm looking forward to playing against players like [Son] Heung-min and Harry Kane," said Lee Seung-woo of Suwon FC, who is currently ranked sixth in goals scored in the K-League, with nine so far this season. "Although it is an exhibition game, I don't want to lose. I will try my best to win."
And Tottenham will not be letting their guard down, the team's manager said. Antonio Conte said Spurs are preparing to win their first match of the season.
He also praised Son, who won the EPL's Golden Boot award for scoring the most goals last season. He described the Korean forward as "one of the best players" in the world.
"One of the best players, I think that many people underrate him. I think Sonny can play in any scene in the world," he said.
Son expressed his determination to win. "Since we won the last game of last season, we will start this season with a victory," he said. "We will show everything we have."
