What coach Jurgen Klinsmann’s Korean national team needs to gain from the game against Vietnam is overcoming the dense defense.
The Korean men’s national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, is preparing for the second warm-up match of the October international match against Vietnam at Suwon World Cup Stadium on the 17th (Korean time).
Klinsmann’s recent mood is good. Korea, which showed below-expected performance against Wales and Saudi Arabia during the September international match, won 4-0 against Tunisia held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 13th. Lee Kang-in scored multiple goals and Tunisia’s Yacine Meria scored an own goal. Substitute Hwang Ui-jo added another goal at the end of the second half.
Klinsmann’s next opponent is Vietnam. Vietnam is a team that is objectively inferior to Korea in terms of power. Korea ranks 26th in the FIFA rankings, the 3rd highest among Asian countries, but Vietnam ranks 95th. Korea has an overwhelming advantage in its previous record against its opponents, with 6 wins, 4 draws, and 1 loss.스포츠토토
The countries with power comparable to Korea in the Asian Cup are Japan, Iran, and Australia. The remaining countries have lower objective power than Korea. These countries are likely to focus on defense against Korea. Vietnam can also focus on defense in this game. This is a great opportunity to study ways to break down the dense defense against countries like Vietnam.
Director Klinsmann was also wary of Vietnam. At a press conference held before the game, he said of Vietnam, “I don’t think they are a weak opponent at all. Depending on the Asian Cup group rankings, this is an opponent they may meet in the round of 16. Furthermore, we can meet in the third qualifying round of the World Cup. “It can be a process of knowing how to deal with and prepare for such an opponent,” he said.
