Coach Jurgen Klinsmann (58) revealed his thoughts.
The Korean national soccer team lost 1-2 in a match against the Uruguay national soccer team in an A-match invited by Hana Bank held at Sangam World Cup Stadium in Seoul on the 28th at 8:00 pm (Korean time). It was the first loss for the Korean national team under coach Klinsman.
Coach Klinsman said, “The difference from the last game was that we couldn’t find the tempo until the 20th minute of the first half. Among them, we conceded an early goal in a corner kick situation. It became a drag game. But I think we were a better team for the remaining 70 minutes. Everyone “I don’t want to lose, so I’m not in a good mood. But I think the players’ efforts and performance in the 70 minutes are top-class. It was a pity when the second goal was canceled in a row. If it was recognized, I think I could have run to the reverse.” .
The following is a Q&A with director Klinsman.
Q. How would you compare today’s game to Colombia? And what do you think you need to prepare for the A-match in June?
▶If I had to pick a different part from the last game, I couldn’t find the tempo until the 20th minute in the first half. Among them, he conceded an early run from a corner kick. It became a drag game. But for the remaining 70 minutes, I think we were the better team. It doesn’t feel good because everyone doesn’t want to lose. However, I think the players’ efforts and performance during the 70 minutes are top class. It was regrettable when the second goal was canceled in a row. If it was acknowledged, I think I could have run to the comeback. (Speaking of preparation) I was happy to be together for 10 days. It showed a will to develop and looked forward to the future.
Q. What is the evaluation of Hwang In-beom’s performance? The team showed a fast tempo overall.
▶ You have to set the world’s best (fast tempo) as a standard and follow it. you have to try again That’s why I played against a strong team today. We played an excellent game against South American powerhouses in the first half of the last match and in the 70th minute of this match.
As for Hwang In-beom, we need a player like him for a fast-paced game. I saw it in Qatar, but I knew it before. While working together this time, I realized that I was outstanding once again. In-beom Hwang’s ability to find a passing path will help him play a fast-paced game.
Q. In the last two matches, you conceded two runs. Are there any concerns about defense?
▶It is difficult to express concern. It was a set play loss. It was one effective shot for Valverde in the first half and one free kick scene in the second half that gave a threatening opportunity. The players, including Kim Min-jae, played well in defense. There is also a four-back, and six players including a defensive midfielder. The wing forwards also showed good performances by coming to support. (Do not worry, defend.) When going on offense, I hope that the game will unfold freely because the players have good skills.
Q. What are your thoughts on strikers Hwang Ui-jo, Oh Hyun-kyu, and Cho Kyu-seong?
▶All three players are extremely talented players. It was a pleasure working with these players. However, depending on which formation you use, it seems that which player you use will change. We can use one top, we can use two tops, or we can put a striker under the two tops. In this call-up, what will the strikers look like when they are deployed with Son Heung-min? Also, what kind of breathing does he show with the wing forward? I was able to see what kind of appearance he showed with the fullbacks coming up.
In particular, speaking of Oh Hyun-kyu (who was canceled but shook the net). As you can see, there is a hunger to run straight and score goals. We’ll have to see what these players do in the coming weeks. I’m happy because I’ve been happy for the past 10 days.
Q. Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in’s individual performances were good. How did you view the ‘breathing’ of the two players? Also, while the director appointed Son Heung-min as a central free-roller, some point out that the radius of future activities may overlap with (center-oriented) Lee Kang-in. (Reporter direct)
▶Today, the combination of Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in showed good performance. At the same time, there are some things that can’t be replaced. Only the front 9 (attacker) seat was replaced. Heung-Min Son is one of the best strikers in the world. We need to find a way to make the best use of this Son Heung-min. It is also important how to use Son Heung-min’s strengths well. Also, it seems to be important that the players next to him help Son Heung-min and promote his own growth.
Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in can create synergy. Speaking of Lee Kang-in, he showed a very good game today. Lee Kang-in gave the opponent a hard time. There is only one way for the opponent to stop Lee Kang-in. It was just foul. To see such talented young players growing next to the best players in the world. I think that’s what we should be working on. 메이저놀이터
