Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Hwang Hee-chan convened in Abu Dhabi on the 2nd… Why are you joining late after Lee Kang-in’s Super Cup?

Klinsmann is expected to be able to complete the team except for Lee Kang-in in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on the 3rd of next month.

Regarding Lee Kang-in, he sent a sign that he could join a little later to build up his “winning mentality” ahead of the major tournament. 토토사이트

The Korea Football Association (KFA) said, “Most of the overseas players, including Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), will enter Abu Dhabi on January 2 next year in accordance with FIFA convocation regulations,” adding, “Lee Kang-in will join his team after playing in the Super Cup match of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in France.”

The Korean national soccer team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann, will participate in the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup, which kicks off on Jan. 12 next year. Korea won the title at the first and second Asian championships in 1956 and 1960, respectively. However, it has never won the title since then.

The Asian Cup is a compulsory competition to recruit players according to FIFA regulations, as it has the authority of championships based on each continent, just like the Euro and Copa America. Each country can invite players unconditionally from two weeks before the first group match.

First of all, it is good to see Son Heung-min, the captain and leading striker, join the team first. Son Heung-min will fly to the Middle East after a home game against Bournemouth in the 20th round of the Premier League at 11 p.m. on the 31st and head to the national team. There were observations that he would play until the third round of the FA Cup against Burnley, which will be held on January 6, but there was no exception.

In the 2019 Asian Cup, which was held in the UAE four years ago, Son Heung-min skipped the first and second group matches and joined just before the third match against China. It was in return for Tottenham’s permission to take part in the 2018 Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games even though it was not an A-match period. This time, such variables have disappeared and he will join the team at the top.

Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers), who achieved a 10-goal feat in a season with Son Heung-min in the Premier League, will come to the UAE after playing until the match against Everton at midnight on the 31st. Hwang Hee-chan scored multiple goals and injured his back in the previous match against Brentford on the 28th, but it turned out that he had no problem participating in the Asian Cup due to simple muscle cramps.

Kim Min-jae, who is playing for Germany’s most prestigious Bayern Munich as a defensive core, is currently in Korea with his family, so he can fly to Abu Dhabi with the main team on the 2nd.

Lee Kang-in is the only player that Klinsmann has made an exception.

Lee Kang-in’s team PSG won the French Ligue 1 title last season. It has been decided that Lee will come to Abu Dhabi after playing a Trope de Champaign (Super Cup) match against Toulouse, the champion of the FA Cup. He will join the club two to three days later than Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae.

Coach Klinsmann allowed Lee Kang-in to join a few days later in consideration of his aspiration to win the title. He seems to have decided that it is better to continue his mood to the Asian Cup after lifting the trophy. The Super Cup is a game in which the winner is decided by only one round.

Korea, which belongs to Group E, will play against Bahrain (Jan. 15), Jordan (Jan. 20), and Malaysia (Jan. 25). The goal of the championship is definitely to win the title.

The first step to winning is for the main players to join the national team normally without injury, and if Son Heung-min, Hwang Hee-chan and Lee Kang-in are not hurt in the last remaining game, they can form the best national team.

The Korean national team will leave Korea after the launching ceremony on the 2nd and will play an exhibition match against Iraq, a Middle Eastern ambush, in Abu Dhabi on the 6th. It is good to see that most of the players, including Son Heung-min, can theoretically play. However, Lee Kang-in will be forced to sit out less than 48 hours after the French Super Cup.

After the Iraq match, the team will train for a few more days before heading to Qatar, the site of the final match, on Wednesday. At this year’s event, Korea encountered an easy matchup. If Korea passes the group league as No. 1, it will not meet tough opponent teams that participated in last year’s World Cup including Japan, Australia, and Saudi Arabia until the final match. The most likely match will be against Iraq in the round of 16, Iran in the quarterfinals and Qatar in the semifinals.

Klinsmann has already begun indoor training, focusing on domestic players, and has begun to harden.

The national team was called to a hotel in downtown Seoul on the 26th and began its first training in the afternoon. 16 players, including domestic players who finished their K-League schedules and some overseas players who finished their first half of the season, will receive domestic call-up training for the 2023 Qatar Asian Cup until the 31st.

The 16 domestic training members are Cho Hyun-woo (Ulsan), Song Bum-keun (Shonan Belmare), Kim Young-kwon, Jung Seung-hyun, Kim Tae-hwan, Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk), Lee Ki-je (Suwon), Kim Joo-sung (Seoul), Lee Jae-sung (Mintz), Hwang In-beom (Turbena Zvezda), Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), Moon Sun-min, Park Jin-seop (Jeonbuk), Lee Soon-min (Gwangju), and Cho Kyu-sung (Mit Whelan).

Among them, Hwang joined the team on Wednesday, while the remaining 15 players were called for training normally from Wednesday. The convocation exercise, which will run through Friday in Korea, will focus on physical fitness indoors without outdoor training.
