Head Coach Klinsmann will watch the K-League match between FC Seoul and Ulsan Hyundai, which will be held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 12th, and get to know the players. It can be seen as the first step in selecting players for the national team. Coach 메이저놀이터 Klinsman revealed that he chose the match between Seoul and Ulsan as part of his schedule, but unfortunately he ended up seeing a big match. Both Seoul and Ulsan are at the top of the league with two victories. Several star players are also scheduled to participate. Coach Klinsman has a lot of players to analyze.

There is a possibility to keep a close eye on the players who participated in last year’s World Cup in Qatar. There are a total of five members of the Qatar World Cup playing in Seoul and Ulsan. Hwang Eui-jo and Na Sang-ho are active in Seoul, and Cho Hyun-woo, Kim Young-kwon, and Kim Tae-hwan are active in Ulsan. However, to be honest, the World Cup in Qatar has been over for a long time. The thrilling advance to the round of 16, which was achieved in 12 years, is also a thing of the past. With the arrival of coach Klinsman, the competition for the Taegeuk mark has also been reset. With the goal of the Asian Cup to be held in January next year, the competition for the national team must also resume.

Head coach Klinsman will make his debut as a manager for the Korean national team on the 24th in a friendly match against Colombia in Ulsan. On the 28th, they will face Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. On the 13th, the national team call-up list for the A match will be announced. Coach Klinsman said that he selects mainly World Cup members. But he can get a chance with anyone. Director Klinsman’s eyes must be stamped.

Hwang Eui-jo, a ‘national striker’ who has consistently been on the national team list, is expected to go on the ground full of motivation. Due to the extreme sluggishness from the end of last year, it seemed to be pushed out of the national team competition. In the Qatar World Cup, he gave up the starting striker position to Cho Kyu-seong (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors), the top scorer in the K-League. Recently, Oh Hyeon-gyu (Celtic), who is active in the Scottish League, is coming up. Hwang Ui-jo must also clearly show off his skills.

The same goes for Na Sang-ho. The national team’s second line resource is a highly competitive position. There are many great players aiming for the starting spot. It is said that Na Sang-ho showed a good performance at the Qatar World Cup, but the situation can change at any time. The goalkeeper competition between Jo Hyun-woo and Kim Seung-gyu (Al Shabab) also sparked, and the right fullback competed so hotly that it was unknown who would be the owner until the World Cup in Qatar. Ulsan veteran Kim Tae-hwan also has a chance.

Other players who did not play in the World Cup in Qatar could also capture Klinsman’s heart. Ju Min-gyu, a striker in Ulsan, who was ignored by former coach Paulo Bento, is also one of the strong candidates. Even though he scored the same 17 goals as K League 1’s top scorer in the 2021 season and last year’s No. 1 scorer Cho Kyu-seong, he was not called up to the national team. We can also hope for Ulsan ace Um Won-sang, who was unfortunately eliminated from the final list for the Qatar World Cup. His condition is good enough to score 2 goals in 2 games this season.

Seoul transfer student and veteran striker Lim Sang-hyeop, and Seoul fullback Kim Jin-ya, a member of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, are also players that are no wonder if they are called up to the national team. Kim Jin-ya also showed a strong desire to wear the Taegeuk mark before the season. It has the advantage of being able to digest both sides.

Ulsan centerback Jeong Seung-hyeon also dreams of returning to the national team. Coincidentally, ‘monster defender’ Kim Min-jae (Napoli) was injured in the Atalanta game that day and was replaced. It may be a power loss for the national team, but it is also an opportunity to wear a Taegeuk mark for other domestic defenders.
