KAZAN (Sputnik) - South Korea forward Son Heung-min said on Tuesday that he was so upset after his team lost 2-1 to Mexico in their second Group F match that he could not stop himself from crying.

“It is a big honor for me to play at the World Cup. I imagine the South Korean people do not want to lose. I was very upset after the previous match [against Mexico]; we played well, but we could not achieve a good result, so I cried,” Son told journalists.
