Qatari members as the main axis, which new face only Klins will notice? Eyes on Seoul-Ulsan match
The new national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann (59, Germany), who will be in charge of the next page of Korean soccer, starts working in earnest. Immediately, we need to form a list of players for the 2nd A-match in March, and attention is focused on how different it will be from last year’s 2022 Qatar World Cup.
Director Klinsman arrived at Incheon International Airport on the 8th. “I am very proud and honored to have been given the opportunity to coach the Korean national team. We will prepare to continue the success,” he said, expressing his brief impressions and aspirations, saying, “The goal is to win the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup.” On the 9th at 2:00 pm, they will hold an inauguration press conference at the National Team Training Center (NFC) in Paju, Gyeonggi-do, and will reveal the blueprint for the Asian Cup and World Cup in the future and specific plans to play two A-matches in March.
First of all, the urgent thing is to prepare for the A match in March. The national team will play an evaluation game against Colombia at Munsu Stadium in Ulsan at 8:00 pm on the 24th and against Uruguay at 8:00 pm on the 28th at Seoul World Cup Stadium. The physical time given to coach Klinsman from the call-up training on the 20th to the announcement of the list on the 13th is extremely insufficient.
For that reason, it is very likely that players will be selected based on the 27-man roster for the Qatar World Cup, including reserve player Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic). Most European players are expected to be called up, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), and Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos). Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who is recovering from a hamstring injury, may also be included in the list depending on his physical condition. 메이저사이트
Still, we can expect some new faces to be picked. The third round match between FC Seoul and Ulsan Hyundai at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 2:00 pm on the 12th, which will be watched by coach Klinsman, is expected to be the first test stage for K-League players.
Currently, among the Seoul and Ulsan players, five (Hwang Eui-jo, Na Sang-ho, Jo Hyun-woo, Kim Young-kwon, and Kim Tae-hwan) participated in the Qatar World Cup, but there are quite a few other candidates who can be selected for the national team. In Ulsan, there are players who experienced the national team during former coach Paulo Bento, such as Eom Won-sang, who scored goals in two consecutive games in the opening game, and Jeong Seung-hyun, captain of the “Tiger Corps.” Joo Min-gyu, the best goal scorer in the K-League, is also expected to be selected for the first team in his career. There are many future resources in Seoul. There are players who have gone through the national team by age, such as Kim Jin-ya, Kim Joo-seong, and Lee Han-beom.
