Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai) will spearhead Jurgen Klinsmann’s debut match. Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) starts from the bench.
Team A, led by coach Klinsman, will have a friendly 카지노match against Colombia at the Ulsan World Cup Stadium on the 24th. This is Klinsman’s directorial debut. On the 27th of last month, coach Klinsman took over the leadership of the Korean soccer team after former coach Paulo Bento. Coach Klinsman, who tasted Korean soccer through his K-League intuition twice, met with the players through the first meeting on the 20th. He selected Taegeuk warriors from the last Qatar World Cup finals, except for including Lee Gi-je (Suwon Samsung) instead of the injured Hong Chul (Daegu FC). Striker Oh Hyeon-kyu (Celtic), who was on the reserve list at the time, was also named.
It is also an important first game from the point of view of coach Klinsmann. After his appointment was confirmed, coach Klinsman received a lot of criticism for reasons such as the absence of tactics and the absence of his baton. Of course, with the refined speech he showed at his official senior press conference, he blew away a lot of the negative air surrounding him, but now it’s time for verification. Coach Klinsman emphasized, “Football does not change overnight. There are still more than three years left until the World Cup in North and Central America, so the process is important,” but it is important to make a strong impression in the first game.
The lineup for Klinsman’s first game has been revealed. Compared to the last World Cup in Qatar, there was no big difference. Cho Kyu-seong stands at the forefront. In the second line, Son Heung-min and Lee Jae-seong (Mainz) and Jung Woo-young (Freiburg) are seated. Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos) and Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd) will be in the double ballanchi. The four-back is Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan Hyundai), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), and Kim Tae-hwan (Ulsan Hyundai). The goal is guarded by Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabab). Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) waits on the bench. Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), who is not feeling well, was completely excluded from the list.
