Players playing overseas joined the team immediately in the UK,

while K-League players playing in Korea boarded flights to the UK on the 3rd and 4th.

On the 3rd, coach Cha Du-ri, physical coach Lee Jae-hong, Lee Ki-je (Suwon),

Kim Joo-seong (Seoul), and Kim Jun-hong (Gimcheon) left the country first,

on the 4th, the eight remaining K-League players left for England.


Coach Klinsmann, who took office in February of this year,

has not won a single match with 2 draws and 2 losses in four international matches,

so he is under a lot of pressure for the upcoming games against Wales and Saudi Arabia.

Coach Klinsmann, who became the first foreign coach of the Korean national soccer team to not have a win in four games since taking office,

has recently sparked controversy for his appearance of staying abroad rather than domestically and working hard on ‘side jobs’ such as appearing on broadcasts.

In addition, in August, news of injuries to overseas players such as Lee Kang-in (PSG),

Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), and Cho Gyu-seong (Midtjylland) continued to spread, adding to the anxiety.

Fortunately, with the exception of Lee Kang-in, everyone appears to have recovered from their injuries, and the overseas players’ performance stood out in last weekend’s game.

Son Heung-min

National team ace Son Heung-min (Tottenham) scored a hat trick in the game against Burnley on the 3rd,

Hwang Hee-chan, who was down due to a thigh injury, also scored a headed goal against Crystal Palace.

In addition, Hong Hyun-seok (Gent) of the Belgian league scored two goals against Club Brugge on the 3rd,

Cho Kyu-seong also recorded his first assist since advancing to Denmark against Aarhus on the 4th.

Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic), who had been out for nearly a month due to a calf injury in early August,

made his return after a month by playing in the ‘Old Firm Derby’ against Rangers on the 3rd.

Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), known as the ‘monster defender’, also showed his health by playing full-time for the first time since the season opened in the game against Borussia Mönchengladbach on the 3rd.

Excluding Lee Kang-in, who was not called up to the national team at the end of August due to a thigh injury,

many overseas players are showing an upward trend, which is good news for Coach Klinsmann ahead of the game against Wales.

Additionally, the fact that European players can join the national team with a relatively short travel distance also makes it easier to manage their condition.


In the K-League, Lee Sun-min, who is leading the recent sensation of ‘promoted team’ Gwangju FC,

is on the rise, and leading players Cho Hyun-woo, Kim Young-kwon, Jeong Seung-hyun, Seol Young-woo, and Dong-kyung Lee of Ulsan Hyundai are heading to Europe.

Jeonbuk Hyundai Moon Seon-min and Ahn Hyun-beom have a tight schedule,

playing a night away game against Jeju United on the 3rd and boarding a plane on the morning of the 4th.

Wales, the first opponent of the trip to England, is ranked 35th in the FIFA rankings,

which is lower than Korea, which is ranked 28th, but many key players such as Aaron Ramsey (Cardiff) and Ben Davis (Tottenham) are scheduled to play.

Saudi Arabia, the opponent in the second round, also entrusted the baton to former Italian national team coach Roberto Mancini (Italy),

a master who helped Italy reach the top spot in the 2020 European Championship.

Korea, led by coach Klinsmann, has been confirmed to play against Tunisia during the October international match,

Vietnam is known to be the likely opponent for the remaining match.
