The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59), will play a friendly match between Peru and Hana Bank at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 16th. Head coach Klinsman, who recorded 1 draw and 1 loss in two consecutive matches against Colombia and Uruguay held in March, is aiming for his first win in his post. Recently, the under-20 (U-20) national team reached the semifinals in the World Cup. The older brothers continue the new wind that the younger siblings have caused in Korean soccer.스포츠토토

◆ There are many empty seats.

There is a big change in the squad. The starting center backs Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan) and Kim Min-jae (Napoli) missed out due to injuries and basic military training, respectively. Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka) and Jo Yu-min (Daejeon), who supported them, were also excluded due to injuries. Manager Klinsman predicted a new combination by selecting new faces for the defense. Park Ji-soo (Portinense) took on the heavy responsibility of leading the defense.

Park Ji-soo’s partner is the problem. Usually, the center back combination uses both right-footed and left-footed players. This is because it is easier to handle the ball when a left-footed center back plays on the left side. Former coach Paulo Bento also preferred this combination. Coach Klinsman also made up Kim Min-jae and Kim Young-kwon for the second A-match in March. In this national team’s defense, Park Ji-soo and Jung Seung-hyun mainly use their right foot, while Kim Joo-seong (FC Seoul) and Park Kyu-hyeon (Dinamo Dresden) are left-footed. However, both Kim Joo-sung and Park Kyu-hyun have virtually no A-match experience. Coach Klinsman, who has to catch both performance and results, is deeply troubled. During the first training on the 12th, we tested the defender combination with Park Ji-soo and Park Kyu-hyun. Park Ji-soo has a lot of experience, so he competes with a partner until the end.

Son Heung-min (Tottenham) comes off the bench. Son Heung-min played the final 38 rounds of the English Premier League (EPL) on the 29th of last month and underwent sports hernia surgery in England. He calls it a hernia when the intestine is out of place and pushed into a weak spot in the abdominal wall. When excessive exercise is the cause, it is called a sports hernia. Son Heung-min participated in his first call-up training and burned his will to participate. However, he mainly focused on recovering his condition. The pre-press conference held the day before the game (15th) was also attended by Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabab). Coach Klinsmann predicted, “Son Heung-min’s condition is getting better. The game against Peru will be sorted out from the bench.”

While Son Heung-min is expected to play as a replacement, Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) and Na Sang-ho (FC Seoul), who showed their peak skills, as well as Hong Hyun-seok (Hent) and Moon Seon-min (Jeonbuk Hyundai), will challenge. In the June A-match, which lacks key players, the arena of infinite competition unfolds.

◆ Cleansman’s offensive soccer again?

Manager Klinsman put forward ‘attack football’. He even said at his inaugural press conference, “I prefer to win 4-3 rather than 1-0.” In March A Match 2, he showed the appearance of attacking football. He was active in attack based on a fast tempo. The color of attacking football continues in the match against Peru, where key players are scheduled to leave.

It is fortunate that the condition of the strikers has improved. Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic) has firmly established himself in his team. Hwang Ui-jo (FC Seoul) and Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai) also scored goals recently. Manager Klinsman declared, “I will give the three strikers plenty of time.” You can also see the combination of two strikers at once. Coach Klinsman said, “I will see the will and passion of the players,” and “I want the players to prove how much they want to go to Qatar (Asian Cup).”
