How much will the new soccer team coach Jurgen Klinsmann understand and select the crew members of the newly formed soccer team after the 2022 World Cup in Qatar?
Director Klinsman plans to reveal his blueprint through an official press conference on the 9th after arriving from the US on the 8th. He needs to know exactly what his philosophy is, amidst criticism for his lack of tactics or lack of leadership.
At the same time, he must also form a roster for two consecutive A matches against Colombia (Ulsan) on the 24th and Uruguay (Seoul) on the 28th. It is known that Michael Müller, head of the Korea Football Association’s National Team Strengthening Committee, will go to the United States to arrange a contract with coach Klinsman and discuss player selection.
As is customary, the list of convocations will be made public one week before the convocation of the national team. It is like holding a press conference to reveal the list on the 13th and convening it on the 20th.
However, this time, it is said that it was arranged by announcing only the list adjacent to the inauguration press conference. It is an internal judgment that there is no need to hold a press conference to announce the list as a place to reveal the blueprint is prepared first.
As in the World Cup, it is unknown whether 26 players will be selected or whether the team will return to the 23 player system. A high-ranking official from the Korea Football Association said, “I heard about the discussions between coach Klinsman and coach Muller and the working staff, but I don’t know exactly about the A-match plan. I think the plan will be revealed when I come to Korea.”
Another working-level official said, “Coach Klinsman agreed to select players who participated in the World Cup. It’s because I have to look at everyone’s back,” he explained.
In terms of performance alone, the main resources of the offense-midfield-defense such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Lee Jae-seong (Mainz 05), Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), and Kim Min-jae (Napoli) are expected to be selected without difficulty.
Hwang Ui-jo (FC Seoul), who made a U-turn to Korea, and Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who postponed their European transfer to the summer, are also in Klinsman’s sights. Cho Kyu-seong broke the net with a penalty kick against Samsung in Suwon on the 5th. He said, “The soccer team is a dream stage. Whether a new coach comes or an existing coach, I don’t know if I will go or not. I’ll just do my best in my position.”
Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) is recovering from an injury, so it is likely to be excluded this time. Interestingly, Um Won-sang (Ulsan Hyundai) is on the rise by scoring goals in the opening two games in a row, and Um Ji-seong (Gwangju FC) failed to avoid cumulative red cards against FC Seoul. Song Min-gyu (Jeonbuk Hyundai) also has vivid memories of scoring a goal in the opening match against Ulsan Hyundai. 토토사이트
In midfield, the ‘big’ Jung Woo-young (Al Sadd) will return to the center. Baek Seung-ho (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors), the protagonist of the recovery goal against Brazil, is still the same. Attention is focusing on whether Seung-Beom Ko (Suwon Samsung) and Young-Jun Ko (Pohang Steelers), who showed good skills after the opening of the league, will be unexpectedly boarded.
In the central defense, Kwon Kyung-won (Gamba Osaka), who moved to the J-League in Japan, Park Ji-su (Portimonense), and Cho Yu-min (Daejeon Hana Citizen), who have become Europeans, are expected to compete fiercely for a spot while Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan Hyundai) is still alive and well. . On the 5th, Park Ji-soo also played full-time as a starter in the Portuguese prestigious Sporting CP match. The team lost 0-1, but since the first game on the 18th of last month, they have made a strong impression with three consecutive full-time matches. In Portugal, he is feeling the great disappointment of missing the horse due to an injury in an evaluation match in Iceland just before the World Cup.
As for the left and right fullbacks, Kim Jin-soo and Kim Moon-hwan (above Jeonbuk Hyundai) are likely to be on board. Since Hong-cheol (Daegu FC) left due to injury, the key is who will fill in. We pay attention to the potential of potential resources such as Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) and Lee Ki-je (Suwon Samsung).
A member of the Korea Professional Football Federation’s Technical Analysis Research Group (TSG), who wished to remain anonymous, said, “It is difficult to know coach Klinsman’s plan to run the national team, but in the case of defense, it is expected that those with a strong tendency to be aggressive will be selected.” After looking at Jeonbuk’s two fullbacks, Lee Ki-je and Lee Tae-seok (FC Seoul) stand out. In other positions, we need to pay attention to Ko Young-jun, Kim Dae-won (Gangwon FC), and Lee Young-jae (Gimcheon Managing Director).”
