It is true that warnings are being managed well, but it is still too early to be relieved.
The Korean national soccer team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann, will advance to the quarterfinals by winning 4-2 after a penalty shootout, although it failed to decide the match 1-1 in the round of 16 at the 2023 Asian Football Confederation Qatar Asian Cup against Saudi Arabia held at Education City Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar, at 1 a.m. on Saturday (Korea time). Korea will face Australia in the quarterfinals.
The warning light, which started from the first group match against Bahrain, has not changed to red yet, but the color of the yellow light is getting darker. They were Park Yong-woo, Kim Min-jae, Lee Ki-je, Cho Kyu-sung and Son Heung-min who received warnings from the first game of the tournament. As many as eight players including Oh Hyun-kyu, Hwang In-beom, and Lee Jae-seong, who received warnings in the match against Malaysia, prepared for the match against Saudi Arabia with accumulated risk of disciplinary action.
Even if they beat Saudi Arabia and advance to the quarterfinals, managing the warning was not an option but a must because they would meet Australia’s tricky opponent. Fortunately, the eight players who were previously warned had no problem playing in the match against Australia as they handed over the game well.
However, as Kim Young-kwon and Lee Kang-in are also subject to accumulation of warnings, Korea has to play with as many as 10 players concerned about accumulation of warnings in the match against Australia. Lee Ki-je and Oh Hyun-gyu, who may not play as starters, may not be too burdensome. In addition, strikers Cho Kyu-sung, Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in can be fully managed if they try to be careful. 헤라카지노도메인
The problem is Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-kwon, Hwang In-beom, Park Yong-woo, and Lee Jae-sung who contribute to the team in defense. Sometimes, they consider one warning and commit fouls to get out of the danger of losing a point, but five players cannot even make such a choice. According to the Asian Cup regulations, players with one current warning cannot play in the semifinals if they are given a warning in the quarterfinals.
If more than two key players are absent on the most important path to victory, their performance will be worried. They succeeded in overpowering Saudi Arabia, but their performance was still a problem. The goalpost helped, and if it wasn’t for Cho Hyun-woo’s good defense, it wasn’t a strange performance even if they lost. The twisted warning management risk from the start is bothering Tim Klinsmann until the end.
