I got my first win, but it wasn’t exciting.
The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), won 1-0 in a friendly match against Saudi Arabia held at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England, on the 13th (Korean time).
Was it because he was focused on the outcome of victory? The content fell far short of expectations. He was unable to capitalize on many chances and almost suffered a fatal injury due to an unnecessary miss. Nevertheless, elements of hope were found. The performances of ‘Bull’ and ‘Korean Monster’, who returned healthy, were still powerful.메이저사이트
Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who plays all positions in the front line as well as the second line, harassed the Saudi defense with straight and sharp movements centered on the left side. At the end of last month, before he was scheduled to join the national team, a recurrence of his hamstring injury caused concern, but he returned safely and played his part well.
Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), who made a surprising statement after finishing the two-game international match between Colombia and Uruguay in March, saying, “I want to focus on my team for the time being,” and skipped the June call-up for basic military training, is also a final candidate for the Ballon d’Or. He showed off his down-to-earth side. He blocked empty spaces with his quick feet, and weakened opposing attackers with overwhelming air superiority and active hustle play. At the end of the second half, when the opponent’s all-out offensive continued, the scene where he threw his whole body to block the ball from entering was a highlight. At the same time, he satisfied the national team coaching staff with his offensive build-up.
‘Maestro’ Hwang In-beom (Crvena Zvezda), who coordinates the national team’s offense and defense, also did not play well despite not being able to properly complete the pre-season due to a somewhat noisy transfer process. It was difficult for him to avoid intensive checks as he was the hub of ball distribution, but he performed his duties relatively well. Cho Kyu-sung’s first winning goal also came from Son Heung-min (Tottenham) passing Lee Jae-seong (Mainz)’s penetrating pass, followed by Hwang In-beom’s pass.
Although there were still question marks about Coach Klinsmann’s strategy and tactics, the trio guarding the national team’s front, back, and back gates were enough to give an exclamation point.
