Klinsmann-style free soccer, with ‘soccer tutor’ Lee Jae-sung (Mainz) at the center.
After some initial criticism, Klinsmann’s team is showing signs of life. Despite the weak opposition, they have exploded for 15 goals in their last three games. It’s been 23 years since South Korea won three consecutive games by four goals or more in an A match since 2000. Up until the European trials in September, Klinsmann turned the tide in October’s A matches, with results that didn’t quite fit the description of attacking football.
The solution was an unprecedented use of the second line. From “Captain” Son Heung-min (Tottenham) and “Bull” Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who are the third and sixth highest scorers in the English Premier League this season, to “Shooter” Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), an unparalleled technician, Korean soccer has squealed with delight at the emergence of the “Golden Trio”. They are a ‘world-class’ lineup, combining skill, speed, and determination.
Klinsmann has maximized the ‘freedom’ of the ‘Son-Hwang-Yi’ trio since the October A match. They were set free to do what they do best – play “do it for me” soccer – and in the attacking third, they were left to their own devices. Klinsmann uses Son Heung-min as a central attacking midfielder and makes the most of his presence. Heung-min is involved in every aspect of the offense, sometimes playing as a number nine, sometimes as an eight. The left and right flanks are also in constant flux. Hwang Hee-chan plays on the left. Hwang can play both left and right, but he’s more powerful on the left. Lee Kang-in’s position is on the right. This allows him to move based on the right flank rather than the center. 보스토토 주소
The ‘Son-Hwang-Yi’ trio is free to play their favorite game in their favorite position. Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan have scored goals in two consecutive games, while Lee Kang-in has scored in three consecutive games. In particular, the Son-Heung-min-Lee pairing that every fan wants is now possible. Their synergy is growing. “Freedom is a word that depends on how you think about it,” says Son Heung-min. You can think of it as a lack of detail, but otherwise you can’t score many goals. Of course, it is possible because the players are talented and in good shape. Freedom is basically taking what you have prepared, both positional and movement-wise. A lot of people think that if we play freely, we won’t be as delicate, but we practice enough.”
