Reporter Kwak Him-chan = Lexham AFC players from England’s 5th division showed their will to meet Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur).
Rexham drew 3-3 in the FA Cup Round of 32 against Sheffield United (Championship) last time. In a situation where a rematch had to be played, the round of 16 bracket was announced, but if Rexham defeated Sheffield, it would face Tottenham. 스포츠토토
It is a great honor for Rexham. Also, there is a story related to Son Heung-min, so Lexham players want to beat Sheffield and advance to the next round.
Rexham players drew attention by showing Son Heung-min’s trademark ‘click ceremony’ in a 5th division game last November. It is known that Son Heung-min’s Tottenham teammate Ben Davies tipped off to Lexham players that Son Heung-min became a fan of Lexham, and asked for a message of support for Son Heung-min. This is how Rexham’s ‘Click Ceremony’ was born.
At the time, Heung-Min Son was having a difficult time wearing a mask due to an orbital fracture injury and participating in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, so the ‘surprise’ event of Lexham players was a great help.
And in the FA Cup round of 16, Rexham and Tottenham could meet. Championship Sheffield is also a difficult opponent for Rexham in the 5th division. However, they are united with one dream of meeting Son Heung-min.
