Jürgen Klinsmann’s men’s national soccer team conceded an early goal after looking disorganized in defense.
메이저놀이터 The South Korean A team played Peru in a friendly A match at 8 p.m. on Saturday at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium. This is the second evaluation for Klinsmann, who made his debut in the March A match. At the time of the March A match, Klinsmann had just taken charge of the national team and played with the same tactics as the players who played at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Therefore, it was an evaluation match to see Klinsmann’s true colors. Klinsmann called up nine new players from March and implemented his own tactics.
The formation changed from 4-2-3-1 to 4-4-2. ‘Captain’ Kim Seung-kyu (Al Shabab) is in goal. On the left side of the defense, Lee Ki-je (Suwon Samsung) is the ‘master of free kicks’. On the right is Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju United), one of the best speedsters in the K League. Park Ji-soo (Portimonense) and Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan) are in the center.
In the center midfield, Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos) and Won Doo-jae (Gimcheon Commerce) combined. On the left and right flanks were Lee Jae-sung (Mainz) and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca). Hwang Hee-chan and Oh Hyun-gyu were the attacking duo. Hwang made his first start for Klinsmann. Oh made his A-match starting debut.
With so many changes, Korea’s movement in the early stages of the game was disorganized. They were unable to effectively block the opponent’s offense, especially at the back, and allowed a number of breakthroughs and kill passes.
As a result, they conceded the first goal in the 11th minute. They crumbled under Peru’s intense pressure. Peru’s captain, Paulo Guerrero, played a one-two with his teammate up front in our defensive zone and approached the box. He then passed to Brian Reyna, who penetrated the box from the left. Receiving the pass unmarked, Reina trapped his right foot and fired a powerful left-footed shot that rattled the right post. In the fifth minute of the first half, Guerrero’s curling shot was denied by goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu.
