Dare to mention Kim Eun-joong, Klinsman, competition-generational shift ‘opened the door of opportunity’

“We have to open the door of opportunity to come to the national team.”

In fact, the standards for the selection of the national soccer team, which will start a gradual generational change from the A match in June, have become clear. The great principle is that everyone has potential.

Coach Jurgen Klinsmann of the national soccer team returned home through Incheon International Airport on the 26th after finishing a business trip to check on European players. In addition to captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), he checked key players such as Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic), and Kim Min-jae (Napoli).

Head coach Andreas Herchoke and other coaches remained in Europe and were unable to board the existing A national team, including Hong Hyun-seok (Ghent), but it is known that they will return in time to prepare for the A match in June after checking potential resources.

Coach Klinsman said, “It was positive to meet all the players as well as Kim Min-jae. I felt very grateful that the national team coach and coaches came and met and met.”

The opponent for the A match in June has been decided. Peru on the 16th and El Salvador on the 20th. convened on the 12th. The players who led the round of 16 of the 2022 Qatar World Cup were the main axis, and it is expected that they will not lead the 26 A match convocation in March, which is of the nature to celebrate their achievements.

The intention to examine and select various players was confirmed upon returning home. We went straight to the 9th round between Jeonbuk Hyundai and Daejeon Hana Citizen at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium. He said, “I plan to watch as many games as possible before the roster is announced in June and check the players. While I was busy meeting players in Europe, technical advisor Cha Du-ri and coach Kim Young-min (Michael Kim) were actively watching the K-League and checking players. He did not hide that he was keen on checking players through division of labor.

Coach Klinsman, who said there is a possibility of recruiting new faces, said, “I think that players who have shown good performances while active should open the door for opportunities for the national team to come.” The venue has been changed to Argentina. I will keep an eye on the players who play an active part in this team.

There are many competitions by age group this year. The U-20 World Cup runs from May 20 to June 11. If they advance to the knockout stage, their stay in Argentina will be longer, but if not, they can board the A match in June.

When the U-20 World Cup is over, the first qualifying round for the 2024 Paris Olympics (September 4-12) is held in early September, and after it is over, the Hangzhou Asian Games (September 23-October 8) await. The A-matches in the second half are September 4-12, October 9-17, and November 13-21. The first qualifying round for the Paris Olympics overlaps with the A-match in September. Hwang Seon-hong, head coach of the under-23 (U-23) national team, emphasized that the dualization of the team is inevitable.

This is like informing coach Klinsman that he needs to confirm a new face step by step starting in June. However, the U-23 national team also wants to be convened during the A-match period in June. Since there has been the same case before, it seems that Klinsman’s intention to see the U-20 national team is to draw a wide range of player selection. Mentioning the U-20 national team, which previous national team coaches did not pay much attention to, is tantamount to predicting the destruction of the hierarchy, regardless of age, as long as skill is sufficient. An official from the Korea Football Association explained, “It is difficult to comment in detail, but I know that I have looked at the personal information and game videos of many players who are interested in the U-23 and U-20 national teams.”

The period of the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup, coach Klinsman’s first test, is from January 12 to February 10 next year. According to the Korea Football Association’s national team operation regulations, the finals are held 14 days before the opening day. Theoretically, the meeting is held on December 29th. If it is a national team management plan that virtually arranges A matches in September as overseas expeditions, it is possible to form an entire A national team in October or only Klins wants, so it is ideal to be coveted if there is talent in the U-20 national team resources, the age group below U-23. It’s something I didn’t do.

Based on players who played in the U-20 Asian Cup last February or who are currently active in the K-League, central defender Kim Ji-soo (Seongnam FC), Bae Jun-ho (Daejeon Hana Citizen), Kang Seong-jin (FC Seoul), and Kim Yong-hak ( Portimonense) and others can catch the eye of Klinsman. 스포츠토토

In particular, Kim Ji-soo, who is now a contract player, has already played 19 games in K-League 1 last year. He played an average of 81 minutes per game and showed off his underage fears with his skills. Due to the team’s relegation, they are playing in the K-League 2 this year, and coach Lee Gi-hyeong uses Kang Kang-bin and Patrick to play only one game, but it seems that only Klins will not be left alone in that he is a promising player Bayern Munich covets. If Kim Min-jae does not join in June, the possibility that Kim Ji-soo’s selection will become a reality, not a plan, must also be seen.

Coach Klinsman said, “I will continue to observe and watch the players no matter where they play,” and expected everyone to dream of entering the national team.
