Klinsmann trusts Cho Kyu-sung (Meatwillan) to lead the line against Malaysia Jo Kyu-sung has been included in South Korea’s squad released ahead of the final Group E match of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Qatar Asian Cup between South Korea and Malaysia, which kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET on June 25 at Al-Janub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Qatar. Cho has been heavily criticized for his lack of finishing in the previous two matches, but national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann hasn’t changed his mind.
South Korea will once again play a 4-4-2 with Cho and Son Heung-min (Tottenham) up top, with Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) and Lee Jae-sung (Mainz) on the flanks and Hwang In-beom (Zvezda) and Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart) in the middle .The left and right flank defenders are Seol Young-woo (Ulsan) and Kim Tae-hwan (Jeonbuk). The center backs are Kim Min-jae (Munich) and Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan).With a number of injuries on the flanks, Klinsmann has opted for a back four.
Jung Woo-young and Kim Young-kwon will start for the first time in the tournament .Cho Hyun-woo (Ulsan) will wear the goalkeeping gloves. Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) were named to the substitutes’ roster after missing the previous two matches due to injury. Klinsmann didn’t rotate. He went with a near-elite starting lineup .South Korea’s next opponent, who has already qualified for the round of 16, will depend on the outcome of this final match. A first-place finish would set up a Korea-Japan matchup against Group D runner-up Japan, while a second-place finish would likely set up a quarterfinal matchup with current Group F leader Saudi Arabia .If South Korea finishes third, they will face either Group D leader Iraq or Group A leader and host Qatar 카지노사이트킹 in the round of 16.
