He overwhelmed both speed and physicality and produced a defensive highlight film in the first half
Coach Klinsmann also gives a thumbs-up to interim captain Kim Min-jae
Klinsmann's scoreless streak in three consecutive games also means a lot
Kim Min-jae scored South Korea's third goal in a friendly match between South Korea and Tunisia at Hana Bank's Seoul World Cup Stadium in Mapo-gu, Seoul, on the afternoon of October 13.
Crath is different. Tunisian strikers were too weak for Kim Min-jae, who has been developing adaptability by bumping into top European strikers. Above all, Kim Min-jae's advantage is that he is fast despite his large size. He is a post-Asian center back with both physical and speed.
Kim Min-jae, the main center back who is also a fixture in Germany's most prestigious, is Beckenbauer as his role model. He said he wants to be a player like Beckenbauer, and so do the fans. The club also recruited Kim Min-jae with such expectations.

And in Klinsmann's sixth warm-up match, Kim Min-jae showed a significant performance as a Korean Beckenbauer. Kim Min-jae, who started as a central defender in cooperation with Jung Seung-hyun (Ulsan) in the match against Tunisia in Sangam on October 13, completely suppressed Tunisia's sharp counterattack. Tunisia's failure to show a proper attack was largely attributed to Kim Min-jae.
Kim Min-jae, who wore the captain's armband when Son Heung-min (Tottenham) was absent, frequently showed his unique "forward defense" and turned the opponent's attack to nothing.
After coming up to the half-line in the 22nd minute of the first half and stealing the opponent's ball under strong pressure, Kim Min-jae supplied Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) with a forward pass and received cheers from fans. Six minutes later, Yusif Masakini, who tried to sprint from the side, was overwhelmed in the speed race and stole the ball again after competing.

In the 40th minute of the first half, Kim Min-jae was also dispatched when Hannibal Mazbari accelerated from below the half-line and led a fierce counterattack. Mazbari was gradually pushed to the side by Kim Min-jae, who followed his speed as it was, and the counterattack eventually fell through as the ball flowed out of the touch line.
Kim Min-jae, who showed a performance that seemed to have edited only the defensive scene in the first half as a separate "Highlight" video, actively participated in the attack in the second half and induced a score. In the 21st minute of the second half, Kim Min-jae's header hit Tunisian defender Yasin Marja's body and made it 3-0. The final decision was an own goal, but it was safe to say that Kim Min-jae scored.

South Korea's Kim Min-jae rejoices with his teammates after scoring a header
On this day, the national team continued its scoreless streak for three consecutive games. Of course, scoring a lot of goals is important, but it is very big that it is three consecutive goals. Kim Min-jae, who met with reporters with a bright expression, laughed, "It's good because it's scoreless even if it's not a goal."
Kim Min-jae is playing the most physically burdensome schedule among the national team players. Kim Min-jae, who played against Freiburg (Germany) in his team at dawn on October 9, returned home to train in preparation for the A match in October after being called by coach Jurgen Klinsmann. Kim Min-jae, who immediately joined the Klinsmann team, normally completed the training held at the Paju National Training Center (NFC) on the 10th without a break.
South Korean coach Klinsmann is delighted when Hwang Ui-jo scored.
In the future, Kim Min-jae is expected to wear the captain's armband when Son Heung-min is away. He is actually the vice-captain of the national team. Coach Klinsmann gave a thumbs up to Kim Min-jae's performance after the game. Kim Min-jae fully proved that qualification with the game.
