Klins’ own experiment to find the optimal solution for ‘two-top to three-back’, the regrettable ‘build-up form’
Of course, there were many variables. ‘Captain’ Son Heung-min (Tottenham) was unable to play due to injury, and ‘Monster’ Kim Min-jae (Napoli) and ‘Light Young-kwon’ Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan Hyundai) were excluded early. While the core of karate was missing, as many as 5 newcomers made their ‘A-match debut’. It was obviously a difficult environment to perform at its best.메이저놀이터
Even so, the regret cannot be erased. Even taking into account the problems of adapting to a new face or organizational skills, the football coach Jurgen Klinsmann was trying to pursue was not visible. I experimented with various archetypes from two tops to three backs, but I couldn’t see any distinct characteristics. Of course, it was a preparation process for the Asian Cup, but rather, only structural problems stood out.
Klinsmanho again failed to win the first game. The Korean national team A lost 0-1 in a friendly match against Peru held at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 16th. Klinsmanho, who had 1 draw and 1 loss in March, tried for his first victory in Peru, but tasted defeat again after a disappointing performance.
Coach Klinsman, who maintained and repaired the style of former coach Paulo Bento in the A match last March, chose a major change against Peru. The formation was changed to 4-4-2. The goal was the same. Instead of Son Heung-min, Kim Seung-gyu (Al Shabab), who wore the captain’s armband, guarded. The defensive line came up with a combination I had never seen before. Lee Gi-je (Suwon Samsung) – Jeong Seung-hyeon (Ulsan) – Park Ji-su (Portimonense) – Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju United) lined up. Except for Lee Ki-je, the other three made their debut in Klinsman. Ahn Hyun-beom was his A-match debut. In the midfield, Lee Jae-seong (Mainz), Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), Won Doo-jae (Kim Cheon, managing director), and Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) stood. The two tops were ‘Bull’ Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) and Oh Hyeon-gyu (Celtic). Hwang Hee-chan was the first to appear in Klins Manho, and Oh Hyeon-gyu was the first to start in an A match.
Klinsmann, who received favorable reviews for the so-called ‘central hand’ tactic, which used Son Heung-min as a striker rather than a midfielder in the A match in March, started the game in a different form. The color of the experiment was dark, but it was a match where you could see Plan B. It seemed that they would maximize the side as they put forward two aggressive fullbacks, Lee Ki-je and Ahn Hyun-beom, but the frustrating game continued from beginning to end.

The most disappointing thing was the build-up form. During Bento’s days, a defensive midfielder came down between the center backs and developed an attack by forming a three-back form. It is also the most common form of rear build-up. The build-up against Peru was different. One of the left and right fullbacks created a three-back with the center back. Ahn Hyun-beom, seated on the right, mainly took on this role. Ahn Hyun-beom is an aggressive wingback among wingbacks, optimized for three-backs. He’s more of a winger. I was already unfamiliar with the four-back, but since I took on the role of build-up, I couldn’t turn the ball properly.
To make matters worse, Doo-jae Won’s positioning as a defensive midfielder was close to the worst. He wasn’t in a good position to receive the ball, and even if he did get it, his options for passing the ball weren’t good. Won Doo-jae is playing as a defender rather than a midfielder in Gimcheon. He is also not in very good shape. Park Ji-soo, Jeong Seung-hyeon, and Ahn Hyun-beom were unfamiliar, but the back line, including Won Doo-jae, who had poor performance, could not turn the ball properly. As a result, Hwang In-beom, the ‘core of the center’, could not play his role. He didn’t catch the ball very often, and it was difficult to get involved in the game. Since he couldn’t develop in the middle, there was no way he could attack properly. The straight, fast football that was favorably received in the A match in March has disappeared.
The only breakthrough was ‘Lee Kang-in please’. In a situation where the model was not properly prepared, the only route that could pose a threat to the opponent was Lee Kang-in’s individual skill. Lee Kang-in recorded a whopping 7 key passes and 2 effective shots with brilliant dribbling and sharp kicks. This is why only Lee Kang-in stood out.
Manager Klinsman showed a quick response in the second half. As the second half started, he turned Lee Jae-seong from the left flank to the center. Hwang Hee-chan, who was in the top two, moved to the left wing and chose a change to 4-2-3-1. However, the ball did not turn from behind, so the situation was the same. In the end, the game began to unravel only after Hong Hyun-seok (Hent) and Park Yong-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) were put in.
It changed to 4-3-3 form and the build-up system was overhauled. Park Yong-woo showed the play he showed in Ulsan, the ‘No. 1 team’, such as excellent positioning, development, and defense. As Park Yong-woo settled down in the back, the team’s tempo revived. Hwang In-beom was also able to support the attack more actively. Manager Klinsmann put in Park Kyu-hyeon (Dynamo Dresden) at the last minute and switched to a three-back, increasing the number of attacks. But in the end, no goal was scored.
It is positive that the flow has changed through various changes in the second half, but it was the game against Peru that showed that Klinsmann still has a long way to go. In the form shown that day, even with Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae, it didn’t look like it would have been particularly good.
