Reporter Ban Jin-hyuk = Lee Kang-in’s tactical request served as an opportunity to equip him with reliable multi-resources that he can trust and use.
The Korean national team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play an international match against Vietnam in October at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 17th.
On the 13th, Klinsmann achieved his first big win since its launch against Tunisia. With a 4-0 win, they recorded their first victory at home and even achieved two consecutive wins.
The Klinsmann now faces Vietnam. There is some doubt about the match as they fall short of objective power, but some say it is not bad ahead of the Asian Cup.
Usually, an invitation fee is charged for evaluation matches. Depending on the partner, you may also have to pay for lodging and airfare. However, this match against Vietnam is an exception.
It is known that Vietnam is self-sufficient in lodging expenses such as flights and accommodation in order to compete against South Korea.
The focus was on whether Captain Son Heung-min would participate. It has been reported that due to the aftermath of a groin injury, he has recently been playing Tottenham Hotspur’s schedule in a condition that is not 100%. There were especially many substitutions this season and there was little full-time play.
Tottenham coach Anger Postecoglou said, “Son Heung-min is as valuable a player to the Korean national team as he is to Tottenham. “I believe Coach Klinsmann will take good care of him,” he said.
Son Heung-min did not appear at the training ground after joining Klinsmann and focused on recovery while being managed separately, but although he was known to be working with his teammates a day before the match against Tunisia, he did not play.
Coach Klinsmann commented, “I think we will have to make a final decision on whether or not to participate after checking his condition.”스포츠토토
Son Heung-min first appeared at the training ground. He started with light stretching and warmed up his body by jogging.
Lee Kang-in’s tactical request in the game against Tunisia also attracted attention.
In the friendly match against Tunisia, South Korea set the stage for a huge victory with Lee Kang-in scoring two goals in the first half of the second half after being down 0-0 in the first half.
What is noteworthy is that Lee Kang-in’s attack revived after he moved from the center to the side. It was my own request.
Lee Kang-in said, “I requested a change in position, and the director gave permission. “I am also grateful to (Lee) Jae-seong for willingly accepting it,” he said.
What was the exact story behind it? Jaeseong Lee answered.
Lee Jae-seong said, “(Lee) Kang-in did the same at Paris Saint-Germain and at the Asian Games, and he said he is more comfortable on the right side than in the center.” He was like that before the game. The coach gave us freedom of position so the players could easily change positions. So he did it autonomously,” he said.
Lee Kang-in’s tactical shout was of great benefit to Klinsmann. As he confirmed the possibility, he was equipped with a multi-resource that he could trust and use.
Lee Kang-in is a star who will lead the next-generation Korean national team. There is no doubt that he will be a great asset if he has a lot of experience playing various positions from a young age.
