Players to watch
Yazan Al-Naimat (Jordan)
The forward has been in fine form for Jordan at the 2023 AFC Asian Cup. He has played an instrumental role in helping his nation reach the final-four at Asia’s highest level. Al-Naimat has found the back of the net twice at the tournament. And having already scored once against South Korea, he will be keen to do it again come Tuesday.
Son Heung-min (South Korea)
Son has led South Korea from the front and has helped them seal a place in the last four of the continental championship. The Tottenham Hotspur forward scored the winning goal as South Korea came from behind to win their quarter-final clash against Australia. He has the required experience of playing at the highest level and will have a crucial role to play if South Korea want to seal a place in the ultimate game.
