‘Captain’ Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham Hotspur), who was on the operating table due to a sports hernia, is expected to miss the A-match friendly match against Peru on the 16th. Son Heung-min participated from the first call-up training on the 12th, but missed his own game and set piece training. The focus was on recovery.
The likelihood that Klinsmanho will play the game against Peru on a ‘day without hands’ has increased. If Son Heung-min, the center of Korea’s attack, is missing, revisions are inevitable from selection to tactics and strategy. It is also possible to put a substitute for Son Heung-min on the offensive side or consider a chain movement of strikers.
Son Heung-min was given a ‘free role’ in the national team. He was often deployed as a left wing forward, but he moved freely, regardless of front and back. He drove the opposing defenders to open up space for his teammates and scored directly when needed, acting as a solver.
Coach Jurgen Klinsmann can envision a Lee Kang-in freerole instead of a Son Heung-min freerole. Like Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in can also perform well regardless of position in the offense and midfield. Considering the sensation he showed at Real Mallorca last season, his strong performance with the national team is also expected.
You can put Lee Kang-in in the midfield and replace Son Heung-min with Na Sang-ho or Oh Hyun-kyu. Na Sang-ho, who plays the basic position as a wing forward like Son Heung-min, can give the team a sense of stability. Oh Hyeon-gyu, who has strong offensive power, can be put in to focus more on offense for victory.안전놀이터
Coach Klinsman, who is aiming for his first victory after taking office, faced a difficult task. Attention is focusing on what kind of sketches will be drawn for victory on the day without hands.
