‘Kim Jin-soo’ injured’ left line competition ‘Lee Ki-je-Seol Young-woo’ Who will win?

Who will be the left wingback who will become ‘Klinsman’s man’? 

The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play an evaluation match against Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 28th. Coach Klinsman, who drew 2-2 with Colombia in his debut match on the 24th, is aiming for his first victory once again.

The most competitive position right now is left wingback. World Cup starter Kim Jin-soo was out due to a back injury. Lee Ki-je (32, Suwon), who came on as a substitute against Colombia, left a good impression with a sharp cross and left-footed free-kick shooting. 

On the 26th, coach Klinsman selected Seol Young-woo (25, Ulsan) as Kim Jin-soo’s substitute. A 25-year-old young man, he made a good impression in Klinsman’s first match against Seoul vs. Ulsan after coming to Korea. Seol Young-woo, who was first selected for the national team, completed his final training in Paju on the 27th. 

Who will be the starter against Uruguay? Both players have no World Cup experience. Klinsmann said, “Lee Ki-je played a good game against Colombia. Seol Young-woo is the first player I saw after coming to Korea.” 토토사이트

Regarding the role of the wingback position in modern football, Klinsman said, “If you play against the world’s best team, such as Brazil, wingbacks have to pay attention to defense for 90% of the time. He can play aggressively against Asian teams. Balance is important,” he stressed. 

This means that no matter which player starts, he must be able to block the Uruguayan strikers reliably. It seems highly likely that Lee Ki-je will start as a starter and Seol Young-woo will stand by as a replacement.
