Amid Cho Kyu-sung’s sluggish performance, a combination of ‘wing’ Heung-min and striker Hwang Hee-chan appears… Will Cleansmanho’s new attack be ‘answered’

The combination of “wing” Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham) and striker Hwang Hee-chan (28, Wolverhampton) will emerge as a new attack option for the Korean national soccer team Clinsman.

It is no exaggeration to say that the biggest concern of the Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, is the front line. Hwang Ui-jo (Nottingham Forest) failed to join the national team on charges of illegal filming, and only Cho Kyu-sung (Mitwhelan) and Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic) were selected for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup.토토사이트

To make matters worse, Cho Kyu-sung fell into a slump at the Asian Cup, putting coach Klinsmann in trouble. Cho was expected to be a key resource for the Clinsman team, but he was the subject of criticism because he missed several opportunities. He took a breather by scoring a golden equalizer in the round of 16 against Saudi Arabia, but was replaced by Lee Jae-sung in the 25th minute of the second half due to his lackluster performance in the quarterfinals against Australia. Another striker, Oh Hyun-kyu, only played in the second half of extra time. As he has never started in the Asian Cup, Oh is now being used as a substitute.

In the end, the challenge for Klinsmann is how to maximize the effectiveness of the attack. Coach Klinsmann pulled out a new card in the second half of the match against Australia. After Cho Kyu-sung was absent, the way for the attack was cleared. Coach Klinsmann appointed Hwang Hee-chan to the position of frontline striker, where Cho Kyu-sung played. He once used Son Heung-min to the frontline, but this is the first time that he used Hwang Hee-chan as a frontline striker.

Hwang Hee-chan’s main position is as a flanker, but he also sometimes plays as a front-line striker in his team Wolverhampton. Hwang Hee-chan is not only good at dribbling and breaking through daredevil, but also protecting the ball through competition with opposing defenders.

Klinsmann used Hwang Hee-chan as the forward line and Son Heung-min as the left flank striker. Both of them have excellent ability to penetrate the back space of the opponent’s defense. By changing their positions, they continued to create chances to attack near the opponent’s penalty box. In the end, Son Heung-min’s penalty kick and Hwang Hee-chan’s free kick against Australia all led to goals.

It is concluded that in order for the Klinsmann’s attack to go smoothly, synergy should be created by taking advantage of the strengths of Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan. Only then can Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), who is placed on the right side, play more freely.

Jordan, Korea’s opponent in the semifinals, usually takes the form of counterattacks after forming a solid defense. The challenge is to break down the so-called “two lines” of defense. To do so, a combination of Hwang Hee-chan and Son Heung-min, who are good at speed and space creation, can be a solution, rather than Cho Kyu-sung who uses the right to provide. Son Heung-min can also play as a front-line striker, so there is also a way to change his position.

Australia, which met in the quarterfinals, also sweated out Korea through counterattacks following a blocked defense. New attack options derived from the process of crossing Australia could be a solution to penetrate Jordan, which Korea met on the way to the final. Attention is focusing on what kind of attack combination card coach Klinsmann will bring up.
