Klinsmann’s strikers hit the ground running ahead of the September A match.
Wolverhampton fell to their knees in the fourth round of the 2023/2024 English Premier League on Wednesday (Sept. 3) with a 2-3 defeat to 온라인카지노 Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in London, England.
The only consolation was a goal from Hwang Hee-chan, who came on as a 15th-minute substitute in the second half and shrugged off concerns about a hamstring injury to score.
It was no fluke performance. Hwang also scored with a header in the second leg of the league tie against Brighton last month. His scoring touch is at an all-time high.
Before Hwang, Son Heung-min also kept a clean sheet. On the same day, Son scored a hat trick in the fourth round of the league against Burnley at Turf Moor in Burnley, England.
Son’s form this season has been stellar. He’s started all four league games so far, helping Tottenham Hotspur stay unbeaten. His consistent performances have made his lack of goals in the previous three games a non-issue.
After warming up, the two players will now join the South Korean national soccer team. Jürgen Klinsmann’s side will face Wales on Aug. 8 and Saudi Arabia on Aug. 13.
They’ll need to bring their scoring touch with them. Klinsmann’s side have yet to register a win in their first four A matches, drawing two and losing two.
The mood hasn’t been good lately either. Since his appointment in February, Klinsmann has been mired in controversy after it was revealed that he had only been in South Korea for two months.
In addition, the September A-Match roster was announced via a press release instead of a press conference. Fans’ frustration with Klinsmann, who wasn’t even in Korea when the roster was announced, was bound to grow.
The only way to change the mood is with results. This time, a win is a must. It will be interesting to see if Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan can open up the scoring and give the team their first win.
