Chinese spectator shoots laser at Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-min, complains to FIFA

Seo Kyung-duk, a professor at Sungshin Women’s University, has complained to the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) about the rude behavior of Chinese soccer fans.

“During the second match of the ‘2026 North American World Cup’ Asia Group C qualifier between South Korea and China on Nov. 21, Chinese spectators frequently shot laser lights at Korean players including Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in to disrupt the match,” Seo wrote on his social networking service (SNS).

“Some Chinese spectators booed during the national anthem before the start of the match, which is a clear violation of basic courtesy in international matches, and this ‘unsportsmanlike behavior’ has been highly controversial,” he continued.

“They also displayed unsportsmanlike behavior throughout the match, including shouting harsh insults at our flag-bearing supporters,” he said. “We believe that these outrageous situations should never be repeated and have filed a complaint with FIFA.”

“In the letter, we conveyed that ‘booing the opponent’s national anthem, laser attacks on key players of the opponent, and severe insults to the opponent’s supporters are clear violations of the FIFA spirit,’ and we hope that FIFA will strongly protest against the Chinese Football Association and take measures to prevent such incidents from happening again.”

The Klinsmanns, who are looking to qualify for their 11th consecutive World Cup, wrapped up their A-match schedule with the second leg of their Group C match at the FIFA Confederations Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) 2026 World Cup North & Central America Second Qualifying Round in Asia against China away on Nov. 21.

Led by Jürgen Klinsmann’s two goals and an assist from Son Heung-min, the Korean national soccer team defeated China 3-0 to top the group. China dropped to third place with one win and one loss. 먹튀검증
