When the striker who represented the late 1980s and early 1990s took the lead of the Korean national team, the eyes of the strikers sparkled.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Wirigen Klinsman (59), will make its debut against Colombia on the 24th and Uruguay on the 28th.
Prior to the game, the national team convened at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on the 20th and conducted training focusing on recovery on the 20th and 21st. After training on the morning of the 22nd, he plans to move to Ulsan.
Coach Klinsman is a former ‘world class’ striker. He scored 47 goals in 108 appearances for the German national team alone.
His club football history is also spectacular. Klinsmann played for world-class clubs such as Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur.
As a player, he led Germany to victory at the 1990 World Cup in Italy and the 1996 UEFA European Championship. At Inter Milan, he reached the top of the UEFA Cup, the predecessor of the 1989 Supercopa Italiana and UEFA Europa League, and experienced the Bundesliga (1996-1997) title at Bayern Munich. Based on these performances, in 1995, he was also named second in the Ballon d’Or (the winner at the time was George Weah).
The Korean national team suffered several difficulties due to a chronic goal-making problem. In the Asian World Cup qualifiers, even though they dominated the game, they missed a chance at the goal, winning by a difficult goal, and losing due to an opponent’s counterattack. There has been no game in which more than three goals have been scored in the finals of the World Cup.
Coach Klinsman promised to solve the problem of decision-making at the inaugural press conference held on the 9th. “I’m a former striker. I prefer attacking. I prefer a 4-3 win over a 1-0 win,” he said. “I think we can break the limit (lack of scoring). I will try my best to do it,” he said.
Accordingly, the national team’s strikers also expressed their expectations. Although he is currently in a slump, Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who was the top scorer in the Premier League in the 2021-2022 season, and Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk), who scored multiple goals against Ghana in the World Cup group stage, despite his short playing time at Celtic. There are many ‘good strikers’ in Korea, such as Oh Hyun-gyu (22, Celtic), who scored three goals.
Cho Kyu-seong expressed his expectations for coach Klinsman’s customized guidance, saying, “The coach is also a striker and I am also a striker, so it would be great if I learned a lot.”
Son Heung-min, the main player of the national team, said, “I said that I play aggressive and hot football, so I will play the football the coach wants by taking advantage of the players’ strengths.”
Of course, solving the problem of determinism is not easy.카지노사이트 Less than a year is left until the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup. We have to wait with enough time, but we need to increase our scoring power as quickly as Klinsman himself talked about winning the Asian Cup as his first goal.
