“Lee Kang-in is a good player, but he cannot bring victory by himself.”
These were the words that Jurgen Klinsmann, coach of the A national team, told Lee Kang-in, the “Golden Boy” (Mallorca). Klinsmanho again failed to win the first game. The Korean national team A lost 0-1 in a friendly match against Peru held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 16th. Klinsman Ho, who had 1 draw and 1 loss in the A match in March, tried to win his first match against Peru, but failed. Although he experimented with only five players making his A-match debut, his performance was below expectations. He was lured by Peru’s organizational power and failed to create significant opportunities. In the absence of Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Napoli), only Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) stood out. Lee Kang-in was selected as the MVP of the game.먹튀검증
Coach Klinsmann started Plan B when Son Heung-min was injured and Kim Min-jae missed military training. The formation was changed from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2. The goal was the same. Instead of Son Heung-min, Kim Seung-gyu (Al Shabab), who wore the captain’s armband, guarded. The defensive line came up with a combination I had never seen before. Lee Gi-je (Suwon Samsung) – Jeong Seung-hyeon (Ulsan Hyundai) – Park Ji-su (Portimonense) – Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju United) lined up. Except for Lee Ki-je, the other three made their debut in Klinsman. Ahn Hyun-beom was his A-match debut. In the midfield, Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), Won Doo-jae (Kim Cheon, managing director), and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) stood. The two tops were ‘Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) and Oh Hyeon-gyu (Celtic). Hwang Hee-chan’s first appearance in Klinsman, and Oh Hyeon-gyu’s first appearance in A-match.
As much as the change was great, the organizational power was disappointing. The target didn’t work properly. It only sparkled when the ball went to Lee Kang-in, but the ball itself did not turn because the rear build-up did not work properly. While all the offense and defense were twisted, Peru’s organization was defeated. Reina, who received Guerrero’s pass in the 10th minute of the first half, shook the Korean net with a powerful left-footed shot. This goal was the winning goal. In the second half, Korea put Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai), Hong Hyeon-seok (Ghent), Hwang Ui-jo, Na Sang-ho (above FC Seoul), and Park Yong-woo (Ulsan) to aim for a goal, but it did not work.
Coach Klinsmann, who attended a post-match press conference, said, “It was an interesting match. Peru did very well in the first 20 to 25 minutes. Peru was not active in a one-on-one fight in the process of connecting to the midfield while building up the rear. “As we found our pace, we led the game in the second half. We had chances, but the result was lost. In the second half, we were able to see what we wanted.” Then, he praised Lee Kang-in and gave advice. Coach Klinsman said, “Lee Kang-in is famous in South America without saying it. As you can see on the playground, the opponent understands it well. Perhaps because he has seen a lot of La Liga in South America, when Lee Kang-in catches the ball, he cooperates with defense. It is fun to watch Lee Kang-in’s game. It’s time, and now you have to think about when to dribble, where to receive the ball freely, etc. I think I’ll look good when I grow up. I’m a good player, but I can’t bring victory alone. I want to evaluate today’s performance that way.” did.

- The overall rating of the game.
▶ It was an interesting game. Until the first 20-25 minutes, Peru did quite well. Peru was not active in a one-on-one fight in the process of connecting to the midfield while building up the rear. Afterwards, he found his own pace and led the game in the second half. I took a chance, but the result was a loss. In the second half, we were able to see what we wanted.
-About compression, decompression, airlift intervals.
▶We struggled until the 20th to 25th minute of the first half. I should have played a solid game while putting pressure on the opponent, but I couldn’t do that and space was opened. Against South American teams, two passes can be a threat. That’s why the overall struggle. After that, I did it systematically while finding my pace. I want to see the players working hard and bringing the flow with a fighting spirit. It was a difficult game because we lost first. It was difficult to manage the game while falling behind. There were many changes due to injuries. There were difficulties, but in terms of performance, I want to talk positively. There were 3-4 chances to make a decision. There were opportunities to equalize and come from behind, but failed to score.
-How would you rate Lee Kang-in?
▶ Needless to say, Lee Kang-in is famous in South America. As you can see on the playground, the opponent seemed to understand it well. Maybe it’s because he watched a lot of La Liga in South America, so when Lee Kang-in catches the ball, he cooperates with defense. It is fun to watch Lee Kang-in play. It’s time to grow, and now you have to think about when to dribble and how to receive the ball freely. If Lee Kang-in grows further, I think he will show a better appearance. Lee Kang-in is a good player, but he cannot bring victory alone. I want to evaluate today’s appearance that way.
- Players have typically changed a lot. What intentions did you have in preparing for the game?
▶ While preparing for this game, there were many injuries including Son Heung-min. Kim Min-jae also started military training. He had no choice but to make a change. It was an opportunity to see young players through this opportunity. Naturally, the coach wants to win the game. It was an opportunity to see new players, how they will grow, how they will be of help in the process of going to the Asian Cup in Qatar, and how they will prepare. Losses make you angry, but you have to deal with these defeats well. I think this kind of process will be a process to see good things in Qatar. Of course, I always want to be with players like Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae, but I can’t. I am satisfied with the fact that I saw the opportunity to see a player to replace them.
- Was Park Yong-woo’s input prepared?
▶ There was no choice but to replace it in an instant. With Won Doo-jae injured, Park Yong-woo was the only player to put in. He knew what had happened before the call-up, but he viewed his attitude positively on the field and training ground. He quietly digested it on the playground. The appearance I saw on the playground was like a player who had been with us for a long time. Satisfied.
- Will Park Yong-woo be re-elected?
▶Everyone makes mistakes. Young players make more mistakes. When you make a mistake, you can grow by looking at not only the manager and coaches, but also the people around you. You can grow on and off the playground. Oh Hyun-gyu is like that. Mistakes are made on or off the field. Advise and grow when mistakes are made. As a director, you cannot decide more on your own. I make mistakes too. I am still doing it. When I make a mistake, my job is to help me grow in a good way, not only as a player, but as a human being.
