The Korean national soccer team takes aim at the Uruguay goal with an even faster attack.

Korea, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play a friendly match against Uruguay at 8:00 pm on the 28th at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. Klinsmann, who unfortunately drew 2-2 against Colombia on the 24th, is once again challenging for his first win.

South Korea is only shouting ‘unconditional victory’. Lee Jae-seong, the ‘Engine of Midfield’, said, “Coach Klinsman told us to win the next game (against Uruguay) unconditionally. The players are aware of that. The fans also want to win. It motivates them.” .  카지노사이트

It is a return match to be held after about 4 months. Korea and Uruguay drew 0-0 in the first leg of Group H of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar last November, and could not decide the game. However, Korea smiled at the last minute as they beat Uruguay and advanced dramatically to the round of 16.

It was a short time, but both teams have changed a lot since then. First, Korea replaced the most important command tower. There are no major changes to the squad except for injured players such as Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Hong Cheol (Daegu), and Yoon Jong-gyu (FC Seoul), but after saying goodbye to coach Paulo Bento, Klinsman was appointed as new coach.

Uruguay has more variation. Edinson Cavani, Diego Godin, Fer

Korea should harass Uruguay’s defense with speedy attacks. Klinsmanho has only played one game now, but he clearly showed a difference from Bentuho. It was 90 minutes to get a glimpse of the color of ‘attack soccer’ amidst the fast attack tempo and active pressure.

Just looking at the press conference right after the game against Colombia revealed what coach Klinsman was pursuing. He explained after the match, “From the beginning, I told him to run at a high tempo and seize the opportunity. I told him to show aggression against a tough Colombia.” 

Coach Broly also paid attention to Korea’s quick attack. He said, “I watched the match between Korea and Colombia. It’s been a while since coach Klinsman took office, but I could definitely feel the difference (compared to the World Cup in Qatar). It was noticeable that the game was played faster.”

In particular, Uruguay exposed its weakness in terms of speed in the match against Japan on the 24th. At that time, Uruguay took the lead with Federico Valverde’s goal in the 38th minute of the first half, but Takuma Nishimura equalized in the 31st minute of the second half and drew 1-1. Couldn’t stop Junya Ito’s side sprint and Takuma’s rush.

There were also voices pointing out this in Uruguay itself. Uruguayan journalist Martin Charquero criticized on social media, saying, “A draw is an understandable result. Uruguay conceded because they couldn’t match the speed of the Japanese players.”

This is a good hint for Korea as well. Uruguay’s defense, which struggles with fast attacks, can be a good prey for Klinsmann, who emphasizes ‘high tempo’. It seems that the game will be determined by how quickly Korea can attack with captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham) at the center.

nando Muslera and Jose Jimenez are all suspended. Luis Suárez is also out of the roster, while Darwin Núñez, Rodrigo Bentancur and Ronald Araujo are out with injuries. In addition, they have yet to find a successor to coach Diego Alonso, so Marcelo Brolly, the national under-20 coach, is taking the helm temporarily.
