Klinsmann, head coach of the South Korean national soccer team, watches the players during a training session at the National Training Center in Paju, Gyeonggi Province, on the afternoon of the 11th.

The national soccer team, led by head coach Klinsmann, will hold two warm-up matches against Tunisia and Vietnam on the 13th and 17th, respectively. KFA explains that it is not easy to find an opponent because other continents such as Europe and South America have their own schedules. However, the Japan Football Association (JFA), which is close to South Korea, secured a warm-up match with Canada, an emerging powerhouse in North and Central America, early on. At a time when South Korea could not even confirm its opponents in the September warm-up match, the JFA moved quickly and confirmed the schedule for the warm-up match a month later. It shows the current state of KFA administrative power, and coincidentally, Canada’s only October warm-up match schedule is one away match in Japan. 바카라

At least, KFA has tried to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers and Asian Cup, which will begin next month, but South Korea should continue to face Asian weak teams from the first World Cup qualifying match in November, starting with Singapore (157th in FIFA rankings) or Guam (201th). Most of the matches have a large power gap without having to prepare for it, and even if you want to avoid it, your adaptability can naturally increase in the journey of continuing to clash with Asian teams. It is for the same reason that there has been no domestic warm-up match with Southeast Asian teams over the past 30 years, and that warm-up matches have been held with teams from other continents other than Asia as much as possible. Moreover, the meaning of the warm-up match will inevitably fade if the team has a history of being completely defeated by China.

It is also difficult to understand to play a warm-up match against Vietnam, and to make matters worse, Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany) seems to be ready to play the best even against Vietnam. The only way to find a small meaning would be to use players who have not been given a chance, but coach Klinsmann drew the line, saying, “There is no rotation.” In preparation for the match between Tunisia and Vietnam, it is in the same vein to call up the best without even a single new player.

Since his appointment, he has been feeling pressure for the result, including a disgraceful record of five consecutive games (three draws and two losses), so it may be a welcome match for the coach. That’s why fans say that the Vietnam match itself was pushed for Klinsmann’s victory. In fact, there is nothing clearly left but a shameless victory. It is regrettable that KFA, which made such a warm-up match, and Coach Clinsman, who is poised to display even the best in such a warm-up match, are also regrettable.
