Seize the opportunity when overseas fans are slowing down…
The first Taegeuk mark Lee Sun-min and Kim Jun-hong
Lee Soon-min, who dreamed of the Taegeuk mark after watching the Qatar World Cup…
“Young Gun” Kim Jun-hong said, “I know that I am lacking…
My goal is to be recognized by everyone.”
There are two players who are classified as ‘domestic faction’ as they wore the Taegeuk mark for the first time at the Klinsman Lake, which prepares for the September A match (match between national teams).
They are K League 1 Gwangju FC’s midfielder Lee Sun-min and K League 2 Kim Cheon’s goalkeeper Kim Joon-hong.
The two players enjoyed the honor of being on the national soccer team for the first time, 토토사이트
taking advantage of the slowdown of their position competitors.
Central midfielder Lee Soon-min, whose strength is in activity, is expected to add defense to the national team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
In the defensive midfielder position, which Lee Sun-min digests as the main position,
Jung Woo-young (Kallis) was originally a good friend.
It was Jung Woo-young, who played an active part in the Qatar World Cup last year,
was called by manager Klinsman in March, but was excluded from the team in September following an injury in June.
As Son Jun-ho (Shandung Taishan), who was in charge of the third line with Jung Woo-young,
was arrested by the Chinese authorities and unable to be hired,
manager Klinsman deepened his concerns over this position.
Coach Klinsman hired Park Yong-woo (Al-Ain),
who was 4 years younger than Jung Woo-young,
during the A match in June, and even selected Won Doo-jae (Kim Cheon) to check his performance on the ground.
Even Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), who plays both the 2nd and 3rd line,
has been facing bad news in his team recently,
coach Klinsman’s gaze eventually reached Lee Soon-min.
Hwang In-beom, who is in conflict over his contract with Olympiacos (Greece),
played as a key midfielder until last season,
but has never appeared in an official match this season.
Lee Soon-min, who has left a deep impression on fans as a ‘rapper’,
has a golden opportunity to prove that his soccer skills are no less than that in front of fans.
Lee Soon-min, who goes by the stage name ‘wero’,
is keeping his identity as a rapper by performing hip-hop at the K-League awards ceremony at the end of last year.
Lee Soon-min, who played a significant role in helping Gwangju FC win the K-League 2 championship last season,
continues to play an active role in the first division.
Lee Soon-min, who played 27 regular league games, takes on various positions
such as midfielder and center back under coach Lee Jung-hyo’s instructions, cracking down on the rear.
3rd place Gwangju scored 28 goals, which is second only to Jeonbuk Hyundai (25 goals), the traditional powerhouse.
Lee Soon-min said at the K-League winter field training media camp
in February that he had been living with the dream of becoming a national team player.
At the time, Lee Soon -min emphasized that the Taegeuk mark was his ‘big dream’
as a player, saying, “I dream of becoming a national team member.
I was moved by the Qatar World Cup.”
Kim Jun-hong, the gatekeeper of Gimcheon, is a young gun born in 2003.
His performance was outstanding in the under-20 (U-20)
national team led by coach Kim Eun-joong, and since mid-July,
he has been taking his place by wearing goalkeeper gloves even in his team’s matches.
Originally, Song Beom-geun (Shonan Bellmare) was the third goalkeeper after Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabaab) and Jo Hyun-woo (Ulsan).
Song Bum-geun has recently suffered from an injury and poor physical condition.
On the 26th, Shonan Bellmare announced that Song Bum-keun would miss training due to a stress fracture in his left ankle.
However, it is not only because of Song Bum-keun that Kim Jun-hong took the 3rd goalkeeper position.
According to the Korea Football Association,
Kim Jun-hong left a deep impression on the coaches during the Hangzhou Asian Games training session in early August.
At the time, Andreas Köpke, the goalkeeper coach of the national team A,
confirmed Kim Jun-hong’s skills and selected him.
In this regard, coach Klinsman explained,
“I was selected to watch the possibility of growing into the future of the national team,
rather than immediately feeling power.”
Kim Jun-hong knows that his skills are still not enough to compete in earnest at Klinsman.
Kim Jun-hong said through the club on the 30th,
“I was selected for the A national team, but I know that I am still lacking.
I think I can say that I have truly achieved my goal when I become a representative player that everyone can recognize.”
