No ‘cha-cha’ against Peru…Klinsmann’s new experiment

1 minute, 42 seconds Read

The national soccer team, led by coach Klinsmann, held an official training session ahead of tomorrow’s exhibition match against South American giants Peru.

Son Heung-min, who is recovering from surgery for a ‘sports hernia’, is unlikely to start for now.

The South Korean national soccer team held an official training session a day ahead of their match against Peru.

Son Heung-min actively participates in all the drills with a bright expression on his face.

He completed passing drills, mini-games, and sprints, showing off his light body movements.

However, less than three weeks after undergoing surgery for a “sports hernia,” Klinsmann decided to leave Son out of the starting lineup against Peru for now.

[Jürgen Klinsmann / National team coach: Son Heung-min will be with us on the bench, he’s getting closer to being fit to play every day, but we’ll see].

With the likely absence of Son Heung-min, the mainstay of our national team, testing different attacking options has become a major task for this A-match.

Not only will we have to come up with new combinations in the forward line, but also in the central defense, where Kim Min-jae is on basic military training and Kim Young-kwon is out with an injury.

[Jürgen Klinsmann / National team coach: If someone is not there, it will be an opportunity for someone else, and this is a good time for new players to show what they can do].

Against Peru, goalkeeper Kim Seung-kyu took over the captaincy from Son Heung-min, leading a squad with a lot of changes.토토사이트

[Kim Seung-gyu / Korea National Football Team Goalkeeper: I think we can play with confidence even with a changed lineup in a situation like this, so I want to play with a clean sheet while working with the new defense for the first time in a long time].

From Son Heung-min to Kim Min-jae, it will be interesting to see if the ‘Klinsmann Ho’ can find a new Plan B after taking off all the so-called ‘cha-fours’ for the A match.
