On this day, both South Korea and Saudi Arabia played a fierce match. However, apart from the heightened desire for victory, several scenes were spotted raising eyebrows.
The most shocking scene was Saudi Arabia’s Ali al-Bolahi hitting Hwang Hee-chan in the neck. Ali al-Bolahi couldn’t hold back his anger when Hwang Hee-chan got a foul in the 6th minute of the first half of extra time and grabbed Hwang Hee-chan by the collar and pushed him as it was.
Hwang Hee-chan, who fell, complained to the referee, but the referee did not take any action even after seeing the situation.
Later, on X (X, old Twitter), a scene in which Ali Al-Bolahi grabbed South Korea’s “captain” Son Heung-min’s hair also spread.
According to the video clip released, Ali Al-Bolahi fought with Son Heung-min and pushed him with his hand, pretending to stroke Son’s head to see if he was still angry. Son Heung-min handled the situation flexibly even though he might have felt bad.
Ali Al-Bolahi was rumored to be a non-manner player in the past. During the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 match against Argentina, he made provocative remarks against Lionel Messi, sparking controversy.
