Technical support issues
Klinsmann-ho's 'surprise leader' Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers) returns. Whether or not to participate must be considered based on physical condition and physical condition on the day, but he started his return by completing team training. Like Hwang Hee-chan, Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai), who has not yet played due to a calf injury, also participated in team training. However, Lee Ki-je (Suwon Samsung) was excluded from training.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), will play the final match of Group E of the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup against Malaysia at the Al Janoub Stadium in Doha, Qatar, on the 25th at 8:30 pm (Korean time).
Currently, Klinsmann is in 2nd place in Group E (1 win, 1 draw, 4 points). Although they have the same number of points as Jordan (1 win, 1 draw, 4 points), which is in first place, they are 2 goals behind in goal difference. In this tournament, if the points are tied, the winner-win principle is considered, but since Klinsmann previously drew with Jordan, goal difference is immediately considered. 3rd and 4th place are Bahrain (1 win, 1 loss, 3 points) and Malaysia (2 losses, 0 points), respectively.
Klinsmann needs at least a draw to advance to the round of 16 on his own. If they draw with Malaysia, they will be ranked higher than Jordan or Bahrain. A win against Malaysia will naturally advance to the knockout stage, but it could be the difference between first and second place in the group. Currently, if they take first place in Group D, they will face Japan, second place in Group D, and if they maintain second place in Group F, they will clash with Saudi Arabia, first place in Group F.
Even if Klinsmann suffers a shock loss to Malaysia, there is a possibility of advancing to the round of 16. Once Bahrain loses to Jordan, their ranking will remain the same and they will maintain second place in their group and advance to the round of 16. However, if Bahrain defeats Jordan, the situation will change again. At this time, the Klinsmann fell behind Jordan and fell to third place in the group. Naturally, we have to compare our points with the third-place countries in other groups. If they secure 3rd place in their group and advance to the round of 16, they will face either Iraq, 1st place in Group D, or Qatar, 1st place in Group A.
Klinsmann began training a day before the game against Malaysia. According to an official from the Korea Football Association (KFA), about 15 minutes of training was released to the media. During this process, Kim Jin-su and Hwang Hee-chan returned from injury and trained normally. In addition, while Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabaab) withdrew due to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, Kim Jun-hong (Gimcheon Managing Director), who joined as a training partner although he cannot be registered on the list, also joined.
However, Lee Ki-je, who has Coach Klinsmann's absolute trust, was excluded from training because he complained of discomfort in his right hamstring. Lee Ki-je remains at the hotel and is concentrating on treatment and recovery indoors. It is currently unclear whether he will participate in the game against Malaysia. If Lee Ki-je is excluded from the list, Coach Klinsmann is expected to make changes such as appointing Seol Young-woo (Ulsan HD) as left fullback.
