Klinsmann, who played a rough game in the second match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup against Jordan, will take a day off to improve his body and mind.
The Korea Football Association (KFA) announced on the 22nd (Korea Standard Time) that the national soccer team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann will take a day off without training.
As a result, South Korea will have a break in two days after only a 2-2 draw in the second group E match of the Asian Cup against Jordan on the 20th.
Korea showed disappointing performance in its second match against Jordan this time. Korea scored the first goal through a penalty kick earned by Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) just nine minutes into the first half against Jordan. However, Korea allowed the team to come from behind by allowing two runs at the end of the first half.
In the second half, South Korea continued its active attack, but failed to tie the game with an inaccurate last shot and pass, only to avoid defeat due to an opponent’s own goal in the second half.
The draw against Jordan made South Korea one win and one draw (4 points, goal difference 2), ranking second behind Jordan (4 points, goal difference 4).
Coach Klinsmann usually gave players a day off the day after the game, but he trained on the 21st, the day after the Jordan match, showing an unusual appearance.
“We judged the training for the team. As we were unsatisfied with the first half of the match (against Jordan), we thought we needed to revise it as soon as possible,” Klinsmann said. “We have a lot of time to rest until the next match. We need to revise the parts to be supplemented first.” 헤라카지노도메인
After checking the complementary points on the 21st, the Korean team will take a rest a day later to soothe their tired bodies and minds.
The team will focus on training again from the 23rd and play the final third group match against Malaysia at 8:30 p.m. on the 25th at Al-Zanub Stadium in Al-Wakra, Qatar.
