Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who leads Korean soccer to the 2026 World Cup in North and Central America, said, “I want to see more through the game” after finishing a 2-2 evaluation match against Colombia at the Munsu Soccer Stadium in Ulsan on the 24th. It was good until national team ace Son Heung-min (Tottenham) scored two goals in the first half, but the result of allowing two consecutive goals only in the early part of the second half was a little disappointing. Coach Klinsman positively evaluated the content of the match, which led to a rough fight with Colombia, a strong player in South America.
As it is time to understand the players’ styles and performances, it is highly likely that the focus will be on testing various player options in the evaluation match against Uruguay to be held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 28th. Coach Klinsman, who said, “I wanted to appoint all 25 people because I wanted to, but I couldn’t,” also mentioned the possibility of changing the best 11 of 2-3 people.
Jung Woo-young (Freiburg), Son Heung-min (Tottenham), and Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), who played an active role in the second line, and Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), who became the center of the pass right below them, received positive reviews for their active movement, forward pressure, and forward passing. . Attention is focusing on what role Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), who was substituted in the 15th minute of the second half and showed organic play with Son Heung-min, will step on the ground.
In the game against Uruguay, attention is focused on whether Hwang Ui-jo (Seoul), who played an active role under former coach Paulo Bento, will participate. Coach Klinsmann, who led the heyday of Germany’s ‘Tank Corps’ as a world-class goal scorer, focused attention on which player to appoint as a striker in the first match against Colombia, with Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk) as the starter and Oh Hyeon-gyu (Celtic) as the second half substitute. went out with Hwang Eui-jo watched the game from the bench that day.
An important point to watch is how coach Klinsman will solve the defensive anxiety revealed in the game against Colombia. In the game against Colombia,스포츠토토 coach Klinsmann made up a four-back lineup of Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk), Kim Young-gwon (Ulsan), Kim Min-jae (Napoli), and Kim Tae-hwan (Ulsan). In the 24th minute of the first half, Kim Jin-soo, who injured his back while fighting for an aerial ball in the penalty box, was missing, leading to a goal conceded in the second half. In the first half of the second half, when they conceded two goals in the first five minutes, there was a crack in the left-sided defense played by Jung Woo-young and Lee Ki-je. Kim Jin-soo ended up leaving the national team due to a back injury, so a change is inevitable. If Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), who was selected as a substitute, gets a chance to play, it will be his A-match debut.
