Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) and Hong Hyun-suk (KAA Hent) were on the national team list ahead of the A match in September. According to the Korea Football Association, the two, who are also members of the Hangzhou Asian Games (U-24), will return to Korea after a friendly match against Wales in Cardiff, Wales, on the 8th and join Changwon Camp, the training ground for the Asian Games team.
Coach Jürgen Klinsmann said, “We decided to call Seol Young-woo and Hong Hyun-seok because they are essential players for the match against Wales,” adding, “We plan to cooperate to join the Asian Games national team as much as possible if other players’ injuries, conditions, and performance do not occur after the match against Wales.” “I hope the Asian Games national team led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong will prepare well and achieve its goal in the tournament,” he predicted.
A murderous schedule is inevitable. Seol Young-woo has to go to Cardiff via Incheon International Airport after playing against Gwangju FC on the 3rd. He is scheduled to leave the country on the 4th and return to Korea after playing the A match there. They play two games between just five and six days, and the time difference is eight hours, so I play in two places. It’s bound to be physically demanding. It is also difficult for a player to return to Changwon after the match against Wales. Hong Hyun-suk will also move to Wales after playing in the UEFA Europa Conference League on the 1st and 3rd. 토토사이트
It is natural for A national team players to be transferred from the national team first. The problem is the specificity of the Asian Games. The future of athletes is at stake in the Asian Games. A match is important, but there is not enough justification to select excessively for friendly matches. Only Klinsman seems to be stubborn for his first win. The A matches will also be held in October and November. At least four more A matches can be played before the Asian Cup. On the other hand, the Asian Games have to wait four years later. The player who is participating this time is not allowed to participate. Military service benefits are not everything, but for important resources in Korean football, you have to put your life and death on the gold medal.
Players play with the risk of injury, but pushing their physical condition to the limit due to an unreasonable schedule can be a big risk. If the two players are injured, it will cause enormous damage to individual players and the entire team. Klinsmann does not seem to consider the specificity very much.
In addition, Hwang Sun-hong’s wild card has never properly joined hands and feet. Seol Young-woo is a wild card. Hong Hyun-suk did not have enough training with domestic players because he was overseas. The reality is that it is not enough to join the team as soon as possible and prepare for the Asian Games.
As a result, the failure to win the A match in March and June and the fact that Klinsmann failed to properly secure a pool of K-League players to replace them amid the controversy over telecommuting led to excessive selection. Seol Young-woo and Hong Hyun-seok are important resources, but it is difficult to say that they are irreplaceable. Now is the time for coach Klinsmann to observe and experience as many players as possible to grasp his proper skills. However, he is overdoing it for the first win right now. It can be a handshake that may come back as a boomerang to yourself.
