“Cho Hyunwoo – Lee Ki-je’s selection”…Announcement of the list of Korea’s VS Jordan, excluding Kim Jin-soo and Hwang Hee-chan

Led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, the South Korean national soccer team (ranked 23rd in FIFA) will play against Jordan (ranked 87th in FIFA) in the second Group E match of the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar, at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday (local time). Currently, the top-ranked team in Group E is Jordan, which defeated Malaysia 4-0. South Korea is ranking second in the group with a 3-1 victory over Bahrain.

For South Korea, Cho Hyun-woo will play as the goalkeeper. Lee Ki-je, Kim Min-jae, Jung Seung-hyun and Seol Young-woo formed the defense, while Park Yong-woo and Hwang In-beom played in the midfield. Lee Jae-sung, Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in were listed in the second line. The front line was Cho Kyu-sung. Hong Hyun-suk, Song Bum-keun, Lee Soon-min, Moon Sun-min, Park Jin-seop, Jung Woo-young, Kim Young-kwon, Oh Hyun-kyu, Kim Tae-hwan, Kim Ji-soo and Yang Hyun-jun will be on the bench list. Kim Seung-gyu, Kim Jin-soo and Hwang Hee-chan were excluded.

Hwang Hee-chan was absent. “My condition is getting better every day. No pain is the most important thing. I did warm-up drills with the team, but I am getting better every day. I need to watch it from now on because I check it every day,” Klinsmann said at a press conference beforehand. He does not appear to be in a normal condition yet. 토토사이트 순위

The main goalkeeper Kim Seung-gyu was absent. The Korea Football Association said on Wednesday, “Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabab) suffered an anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during a training session on Wednesday. The team has decided to cancel the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar. Since his family is in Qatar, his return schedule will be decided later.”

“Kim Seung-gyu was injured last night during the training in his own game. MRI results came out late, and the cancellation was decided,” he added. This is unfortunate news of his departure from the team ahead of the important match against Jordan. There are concerns that leaving the upcoming Asian Cup could negatively affect Kim’s future career in 1990.

Cho Hyun-woo will play in the upcoming event. He stood tall as the best goalkeeper in the K-League while playing for Daegu FC and Ulsan HD. He has been named the best eleven in the K-League 1 season for seven consecutive years, surpassing the legendary goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae. Including his time in the K-League 2, he was the top goalkeeper for nine consecutive years. He has displayed outstanding performances not only in clubs but also in the national team. He was nicknamed “Bit Hyun-woo” when he performed well during the 2018 Russia World Cup. He also joined the 2018 Jakarta Palembang Asian Games as a wild card and won a gold medal.

Cho Hyun-woo, who was shining, had Kim Seung-gyu in the national team, so he has rarely been seen recently. His ability to defend is still the best, but his relatively unstable feet have been hampered. As a team and colleague, it is very unfortunate that Kim Seung-gyu left the injury, but for Cho Hyun-woo, he once again took the opportunity to prove his ability in the national team.

“The match against Jordan is going to be a difficult match. I think it will be quite a thrilling game. In the case of Jordan, we played so well in the first game. It seems like Jordan wants to advance to the round of 16. That’s the attitude. It will be a difficult game, but I have high expectations because I showed good performance, and I did my best to get good results. I am grateful to be with you as the coach of the Korean national team. It is such an honor and a happy occasion. At each club, everyone will know how good they are in the league and how capable they are. But it is not easy under any circumstance. We have confidence, but we should not be complacent,” he said with caution.

Lastly, about Jordan, he said, “I show a lot of respect. We are constantly discussing internally how to deal with Jordan. I don’t want to mention the name of the player, but there are many players who are very threatening individually. I respect them a lot and will prepare well.” If Jordan is captured, he will be able to play the tournament by running the group stage leisurely, so it is time to support him so that he can win without being swept away by the current atmosphere of the tournament.
