“Korea relies too much on Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Lee Kang-in.” Asian Cup favorites fell to fourth place

The national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will face Malaysia at 8:30 p.m. on the 25th (Korea time) in the “Group E 3 of the 2023 AFC Asian Cup” to be held at Al Zanup Stadium in Al Wakra, Qatar.

Team Korea, which beat Bahrain 3-1 in the first match, tied with Jordan 2-2 in the second match after a hard struggle. Korea, which gave up the lead to Jordan (1 win, 1 draw, +4), is set to retake the lead. Malaysia has already been eliminated with two losses.

The match against Jordan was a poor match. Son Heung-min’s first penalty kick was scored, but Park Yong-woo scored an own goal. To make matters worse, he even allowed a come-from-behind goal in a corner kick situation during extra time in the first half.

South Korea, which was dragged on, managed to draw with its opponent’s own goal in the 46th minute of the second half. Hwang In-beom’s shot was a lucky equalizer to fit the opponent’s body. 토토사이트 추천

Throughout the tournament, Klinsmann has shown incompetence in mercenary skills and tactical response. Lee, who had been the starting pitcher for two consecutive matches, withdrew early due to injury. After all, Lee will not be able to play in the third match. Since Kim Tae-hwan and Kim Jin-soo are also injured, Seol is one player who will play in the fullback. Despite the increased entry to 26, he has brought in three players to spare who cannot be used.

As Korea continued to show disappointing performances, its chances of winning the championship fell sharply. Korea, which was the strongest candidate along with Japan, fell to fourth place. Indian media Sports Ada predicted Korea to be fourth behind Qatar, Japan and Iran.

The media outlet said, “Korea drew 2-2 against Jordan. Jordan received more attention. Korea has certain star players who play in Europe such as Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae and Lee Kang-in. The dependence on them is too high.”

“Players like Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in are providing expertise on the international stage as well. In Korea, the task is to combine such youth with experience,” he said, questioning Klinsmann’s leadership.
