Klinsmann-ho confirmed for October A match, Tunisia in Seoul on the 13th and Vietnam in Suwon on the 17th

It was as expected. Korea, who advanced to the round of 16 of the World Cup, will play an evaluation match with Vietnam.

The A team’s opponent for the October A match, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, has been confirmed. As previously reported, the Vietnam War was finally confirmed. On the 12th, the Korea Football Association (KFA) confirmed Vietnam as the opponent for the A match to be held on October 17th. As a result, the national team’s friendly matches during the October A-match period will be played against Tunisia on the 13th and against Vietnam on the 17th.’ The location has also been decided. The match against Tunisia will be held at Seoul World Cup Stadium, and the match against Vietnam will be held at Suwon World Cup Stadium. Both games kick off at 8 p.m.온라인카지노

The match against Tunisia was decided early on. On the 16th of last month, KFA announced the confirmation of the second round of the September A-match against Saudi Arabia and the news that Tunisia was confirmed as the opponent for the first round of the October A-match. Tunisia is ranked 31st in the FIFA rankings. At the Qatar World Cup, they were eliminated in the group stage with 1 win, 1 draw, and 1 loss, but they also defeated defending champion France 1-0. He is good at quick transitions between offense and defense thanks to his solid physical strength. Tunisia will play against the A national team and then play in Japan. Korea’s previous record against Tunisia is 1 draw and 1 loss.

However, the second game was fluid. Previously, Korea promoted domestic evaluation games in conjunction with Japan. Japan will play a two-game series against Tunisia and Canada. Korea painted a different picture. News continued that a match against Vietnam was scheduled. There was even talk that Coach Klinsmann chose a relatively weak team to win. There was a negative reaction to the news that the game could be played against an Asian team, and one that was not as strong. It has been 32 years since Korean soccer played a game against a Southeast Asian team at home. In June 1991, the President’s Cup clashed with Indonesia at Daejeon Hanbat Stadium. Since Korean soccer declared its departure from Asia and took on the world stage, it has never played an international match against a Southeast Asian team. Of course, there have been friendly matches against Southeast Asian teams in places such as Thailand, but it has been well over 30 years since we invited a Southeast Asian team to Korea.

Coach Klinsmann actually issued an official confirmation for the Vietnam War. Coach Klinsmann said in an online meeting with domestic media, “Of course it’s good to play against the world’s strongest nation. It’s the same for me. These days, there are many competitions on each continent, so matchups are not easy. There are difficulties, and then how can we get the most out of the A match? Then, Asian “Let’s prepare for the cup. I thought it would be good to prepare in a different way. We should meet Vietnam in the Asian Cup or preliminaries, not a weak team. It is not a weak team. It was a question of how to make the most of it when we did not meet a good team.” did.

Vietnam is an underdog ranked 95th in the FIFA rankings, but has recently emerged as a powerhouse in Southeast Asia. Former coach Park Hang-seo took the team to the next level. They succeeded in placing 4th in the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games, winning the Southeast Asian Football Confederation (AFF) Championship in the same year, advancing to the quarterfinals of the 2019 UAE Asian Cup, and advancing to the final Asian qualifiers for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Even after coach Park Hang-seo stepped down, the atmosphere is good. Since last June, they have been on a three-game winning streak, capturing Hong Kong, Syria, and Palestine in succession.

The October international match is the last warm-up match before the Asian Cup. In November, the second round of the Asia qualifiers for the North, Central and American World Cup will be held. Korea was assigned to Group C along with China, Thailand, and the winners of the Singapore-Guam first round. It’s real. These are games where you have to give your best even if the opponent is not strong. There is at least some time to spare for the October international match. Unlike the previous games, which were disorganized and colorless, the October A match should reveal some outline of the soccer we will show in the Asian Cup.

The Klinsmann is noisy. Issues outside of the game covered the national team. Even before departure, there was a lot of noise due to frequent outings, neglect of K-League players, and moderation of Europeans, and even after arriving on site, various problems were caused and fueled the already unfavorable public opinion. He made a fuss about playing in a charity match between his former team Bayern Munich and Chelsea, and foreign media reported that he requested a uniform exchange from Wales captain Aaron Ramsey for his son. When the situation was not going well, I had an interview with local reporters such as Sports Chosun for almost an hour, but he said, “There is no need to watch the entire K-League” and “I will not change. If you don’t like it, find another coach.” It left the fans stunned.

Klinsmann is currently in the middle of the September international match schedule. In the friendly match against Wales held in Qatif on the 8th, there was a 0-0 draw. The best players that Korean soccer is proud of, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), all showed up, but the game ended in a draw after a poor performance. The performance was so poor that there was only one effective shot. With the draw today, Klinsmann is undefeated in 5 games. It is the longest winless record among foreign coaches in history. Klinsmann, launched in March, faced Colombia (2-2 draws) and Uruguay (1-2 losses) in March, Peru (0-1 losses) and El Salvador (1-1 draws) in June, but lost 2 draws and 2 losses. recorded. Fans’ heads are turning after the poor performance. Klinsmann will try for his first win in a friendly match against Saudi Arabia at 3:45 a.m. on the 13th at St. James Park in Newcastle, England. Saudi Arabia is a formidable team with coach Roberto Mancini, who led Italy to Euro 2020 victory, taking over as coach.

After the international match in October, Klinsmann will participate in the World Cup qualifiers in November and the Qatar Asian Cup in January. Korea was in a group with Bahrain, Jordan, and Malaysia. Director Klinsmann’s words are changing little by little through interviews, but there is one thing that remains the same. He is the ‘Asian Cup winner’. He has been calling for winning the Asian Cup since his appointment. In an interview during this trip to Europe, he also said, “I am 1000% all-in on winning the Asian Cup.” The October international match is expected to be an evaluation match where we can see the outlines of Klinsmann’s path to winning the Asian Cup.

After the Asian Cup, there will be a home and away match against Thailand in the second round of the World Cup qualifiers in March next year, followed by an away match against Singapore (or Guam) and a home match against China in June. A breathtaking schedule awaits, but it is true that concerns are greater than expectations at the moment.
