The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, won 6-0 at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th with Kim Min-jae’s first goal and additional goals from Hwang Hee-chan, Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in and Jung Woo-young. Korea won two games on its home turf in October, and won three consecutive A matches.
South Korea beat Saudi Arabia 1-0 in an away match against Newcastle on Sept. 13. It was Klinsmann’s first win in Korea. After moving to their home turf, South Korea defeated Tunisia (4-0) and Vietnam (6-0). It is a great victory with 10 goals and no points in the last two games. Although the opponent was weak, South Korea was recognized for its offensive power.
Captain Son Heung-min also said, “If you scored 10 goals in two games, you would be praised no matter who the opponent was.” I can’t promise to score a lot of goals in the upcoming game, but I will maintain a good atmosphere and play a good game,” he said with joy.
Klinsmann said, “The players have trained positively over the past 10 days. It was the last test stage a few weeks before the World Cup qualifying round. I’m very happy,” he said, satisfied with the performance of the warm-up match.
Now, South Korea will officially enter the World Cup qualifying round. The national team will invite Singapore to South Korea on November 16 for a match, and will travel to China to face the Chinese national team on November 21. There is less than a month left. 스포츠토토
However, Klinsmann is going to Europe again in the meantime. The final round of the K League will open from the 20th. This is the most important time that determines farming in the K League year. However, Klinsmann decided that it was more important to take care of European players first.
When asked about his future schedule, Klinsmann said, “I’m going to Europe this weekend to watch Mainz vs Munich. And I will go home to America and rest.” He will skip the final round of the K-League and watch the match between Mainz and Munich in Mainz, Germany on the 22nd.
Klinsmann said, “After that, I will come to Korea and watch the FA Cup. I will go to Singapore and Malaysia again and watch the K League team play the Asian Champions League match in November. I will accompany coach Cha Du-ri,” he added.
Ulsan Hyundai will face Johor FC in Iskandar, Malaysia, on November 7. Jeonbuk Hyundai will face Ryan City in Singapore on the 8th.
To sum up Klinsmann’s words, he means that he will stage a tremendous force between Korea, Germany, the U.S., Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and Korea in less than a month. What is the intention of not watching the final round between K League teams while watching K League teams through FA Cup and ACL.
Klinsmann has already completed more than 70% of his capacity to play in the Asian Cup, mainly overseas players. Klinsmann says, “The door is open at any time,” but it is questionable whether a new face can be discovered in the K League.
Klinsmann has also been very passive in testing new combinations or new faces against Vietnam. “Existing players should have continuity. “I changed several players at half-time, but I took the same number of best 11 players and tried to match them for as long as possible,” he said. The power plan for the Asian Cup is already in the completion stage.
In fact, there is little possibility that Clinsman will select a new face while watching the remaining K-League. Coach Klinsmann, who goes to take care of the Bundesliga first as soon as the national team game is over, is putting more emphasis on conditioning the main overseas players.
