The large skeleton was maintained. The change in the defensive line looks great, but it was an unavoidable choice.메이저놀이터
Kim Min-jae (Napoli) failed to join in the first place. Having received special military service benefits for winning the gold medal in the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, he enlists in the A-match period to receive basic military training. Another axis of the center back, Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan), is injured. He recently injured his right hamstring (muscle in the back of his thigh).
Jurgen Klinsmann, coach of national team A, unveiled the ‘real 1st season’ he picked himself at the Seoul Sinmunro Soccer Hall on the 5th. Klinsmann will play against Peru at Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 16th and El Salvador at Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 20th.
Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), and Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos) were on board without change, and the hottest topic was the exceptional selection of Son Jun-ho (Shandung Taisan). He has been under investigation by Chinese authorities in detention since the 12th of last month. China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that Son Jun-ho is under investigation for “bribing non-state actors.”
As director Klinsman picked Son Jun-ho, there was a brief ‘energy of hope’. However, it was a ‘protest’ level. Coach Klinsman said, “Son Jun-ho’s situation is very heartbreaking. Right now we are doing what we can. We do not know his mental and physical condition, but if he cannot join, I will miss his performance in March. Pray for Son Jun-ho. It is our role to do our best to return quickly.” He also said, “We are together in a difficult time for Son Jun-ho,
The Korea Football Association dispatched Jeon Han-jin, head of business division, and a lawyer to China to find out the situation of Son Jun-ho. They returned home on the 4th. An official from the Football Association said, “There was no income. Son Jun-ho’s personal lawyer was also reluctant to request an interview with the Football Association. The Chinese Football Association also said, ‘There is nothing to tell’.” Contrary to the wish with Klinsman, Son Jun-ho’s joining does not seem easy.

The 2nd A match in March was filled with players who participated in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, who succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years. Manager Klinsman had just taken the baton, so he didn’t have time. Compared to 3 months, there were 6 ‘new faces’. Park Ji-soo (Protimonense), Kim Joo-seong (Seoul), Ahn Hyeon-beom (Jeju) in the defense line, Hong Hyeon-seok (Hent), Won Doo-jae (Gimcheon), and Park Yong-woo (Ulsan) in the midfield are new faces. Hong Hyeon-seok, who plays in the Belgian League, and K-League Ahn Hyeon-beom, Park Yong-woo, are the first players on the A national team. Manager Klinsmann and coaches intensively checked the European players after the A match in March. Coach Paolo Stringara met Park Ji-soo and head coach Andreas Herchowk met Hong Hyun-seok and confirmed their potential.
However, the front three remained the same. Hwang Ui-jo (Seoul), Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk), and Oh Hyeon-kyu (Celtic) were called up again. Except for Oh Hyun-kyu, Hwang Ui-jo and Cho Kyu-seong showed a clear downward trend, but coach Klinsman was stingy with changes. Only conservative sketches stand out. On the other hand, Joo Min-gyu (Ulsan), who boasts the best goal score in the K-League, ignored coach Klinsman following Paulo Bento. The same tone was evident in his words. Coach Klinsman said, “Strikers are special. They are evaluated by points, but I also want to score in every game. Last weekend, Cho Kyu-seong scored and it felt good. I hope Oh Hyun-kyu will also score.” “The three players are obviously more I can show it. There are definitely players who have scored more goals in the K-League. However, there will definitely come a time when the performance is not good or when I cannot score. It is my role to help people overcome difficulties,” he emphasized.
The Europeans, led by Son Heung-min, started ‘commuting training’ at Paju NFC from the 5th to maintain their condition. The convocation of the complete group is on the 12th, and they will start quenching at Gudeok Stadium in Busan. Coach Klinsman, who only had 1 draw and 1 loss in two A-matches in March, will challenge for the first win in two consecutive A-matches.
