It’s stable!… Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in, Hwang Hee-chan, and Kim Min-jae, the ‘Asian Cup’ national soccer team, were selected as the best without new faces

From captain Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Lee Kang-in (Saint-Germain in Paris), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton). Aiming to win the Asian Cup title for the first time in 64 years, Klinsmann has made the final roster of top players without surprising selection.랭크카지노

South Korea’s national soccer team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, announced the final list of 26 players for the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup at CGV Yongsan in Seoul on the 28th. The team selected players who completed the verification in order to shake off the regret that they had won the runner-up prize four times (1972, 1980, 1988 and 2015) since reaching the top in 1960.

“What’s important is the skeleton. Kim Min-jae, who won the Best Defender award in the Italian Serie A, and Lee Kang-in, who showed off his talent in the Paris Saint-Germain, will take the center stage. I hope Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan will continue their performances in their respective teams,” Klinsmann said. “Sixty-four years (without winning) is too long for Korea. If we play confidently without injury, we can stand on top.”

Cho Kyu-sung (Mitwhelan), Oh Hyun-kyu, Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic), and Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) will fill the void of Hwang Ui-jo (Norwich City), who was excluded from the list on charges of illegal filming. In the midfield, Park Yong-woo (Al-Ain), Hwang In-beom (Zvezda), Hong Hyun-seok (Hent), Lee Soon-min (Gwangju), Lee Jae-sung (Mainz), Moon Seon-min, and Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk) will balance offense and defense. “There are good strikers such as Oh Hyun-kyu and Cho Kyu-sung, and Son Heung-min can also play fake No. 9 (a player who plays like a midfielder although he is a striker),” manager Klinsman explained.

He has also filled the fullback with existing resources, which Klinsmann said has been agonizing the most. Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai) and Lee Ki-je (Suwon Samsung) will be on the left, while Seol Young-woo and Kim Tae-hwan (Ulsan Hyundai) will be on the right. Center backs Kim Young-kwon, Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan Hyundai FC) and Kim Joo-sung (Seoul FC) will be picked as partners for Kim Min-jae, while Kim Seung-gyu (Alshab), Cho Hyun-woo (Ulsan Hyundai FC) and Song Bum-keun (Shonan Belmare FC) will continue to guard the goal. The youngest is a defender Kim Ji-soo (Brentford FC), who was born in 2004. “We decided that we need to grow young resources by expanding the final three spots in the Asian Cup,” Klinsmann said.

The biggest obstacle to winning the title is Japan’s archrival. “We are rivals that have clearly shown growth in recent years. We hope to see each other in the finals,” Klinsmann said of Japan. “We are continuing to analyze the situation, but Korea’s performance is more important. We will thoroughly prepare for it.”

The Korean team, which will depart for Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates on January 2 next year, will join European players including Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae on the next day to form a complete team. After arriving in Qatar on January 10, the team will play against Bahrain, the first Group E match, on June 15, and will face Jordan on June 20 and Malaysia on June 25
