The Korea Football Association plans to look back on the Asian Cup through the Power Enhancement Committee on the 13th.
The Korea Football Association said on February 12 that Hwang Ji-soo, head of the technical headquarters, and Michael Mueller, chairman of the power reinforcement committee, held a meeting on the Asian Cup and will hold an Asian Cup evaluation review meeting by adjusting the schedule of members of the power reinforcement committee within this week.
The South Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, was completely defeated 0-2 in the semifinal against Jordan on the 7th after a poor match that failed to even record one effective shot.
The national team, which had a number of key players from big clubs such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), Lee Jae-sung (Mainz), and Hong Hyun-seok (Hent), was considered the best performance ever.
However, Lee Kang-in’s “one-man show” won the first group match, and narrowly tied Jordan 2-2 in the second match. In the third match, the team played a shocking 3-3 draw against Malaysia, which ranks 130th in FIFA rankings.
After that, Klinsmann, who managed to survive by playing overtime against Saudi Arabia and Australia, finally showed his bare face in the semifinals against Jordan. Even with the superstars in front of him, he failed to carry out the offensive work properly, and his defense fell apart because one Kim Min-jae was missing.
It is a position to review the failure of the Asian Cup and evaluate Klinsmann, who is under extreme pressure to dismiss him, but chances are high that there will be no coach Klinsmann. This is because he has already left the country. Klinsmann left for the U.S. on the 10th. Klinsmann has already confirmed once again that he will stick to his “remote working” behavior, in which he stays abroad longer than his stay in Korea. 꽁머니
In addition, Chairman Chung Mong-kyu, who did not follow the process of the national supervisory appointment committee and pushed for the appointment of Klinsmann, is also uncertain to attend.
Meanwhile, South Korea will resume its second round of Asian qualifiers for the North-Central American World Cup starting in March. During the “A Match” in March, two consecutive home and away matches against Thailand will be held.
