On the 5th, Klinsmann, coach of the Korean national soccer team, announced the list of 23 national team members who will participate in the June A-match (Peru on the 16th and El Salvador on the 20th) at the Seoul Soccer Center in Jongno-gu.
The list includes Son Jun-ho, who has been arrested and detained by public security in China’s Liaoning Province since the 12th of last month.
While local media have mentioned the possibility of Son Jun-ho’s involvement in match-fixing, the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that he is being investigated for “non-state actors receiving bribes.”
The Football Association recently dispatched Jeon Han-jin, head of the management division, and an association lawyer to China to accurately understand the situation.
Ahn Hyeon-beom, who leads the rise of Jeju United, Hong Hyeon-seok (Ghent), who is active in Belgium, and Park Yong-woo, Ulsan midfielder, were selected for the first time in the national team.
Ju Min-gyu (Ulsan), who had high expectations, did not happen again.
Striker Joo Min-gyu, who ranked top scorer in the 2021 season (22 goals) and second in the scoring rankings (17) in the 2022 season in K-League 1, has been thoroughly ignored by former manager Paulo Bento.
He has been very active this season as well, tying for the top scorer with 8 goals, and it seemed highly likely that he will be called by coach Klinsman.
This list is the de facto first national team list that reflects the intention of coach Klinsman, who stepped on Korean soil on March 8th.
During the A-match last March, which was the debut stage, the list was filled mainly with players who participated in the 2022 Qatar World Cup because there was not enough time to look at the players directly.
Manager Klinsman, who failed to win with 1 draw and 1 loss in his debut stage, will challenge for victory this month.
The national team convened in Busan on the 12th will face Peru at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 16th and El Salvador at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 20th.
Meanwhile, European players such as Heung-Min Son (Tottenham), Jae-Sung Lee (Mainz), and Hee-Chan Hwang (Wolverhampton), who have returned to Korea, will commute to and from Paju NFC (National Team Training Center) until the 12th to maintain their physical condition.
