The Klinsmanns, who have assembled some of the best goalies in Korean soccer, are looking for a ‘goal feast’ against Tunisia. The South Korean national soccer team, coached by Jürgen Klinsmann (GER), will face Tunisia in an exhibition match at the Seoul World Cup Stadium in Mapo-gu, Seoul at 8 p.m. on Wednesday .Klinsmann, who has been labeled the longest winless coach in Korean soccer history, bounced back with a 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia last month .Against Tunisia, Klinsmann will look to make it two wins in a row.
It’s also a test match at home, so they’ll need to come away with a comfortable, multi-goal victory. They have the weapons to score goals, especially with the Premier League (EPL) duo of So Heung-min (Tottenham) and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) on fire .Son, who has worn the Tottenham captain’s armband this season, is tied for second in the EPL with six goals .He has helped Spurs to an unbeaten start to the season with six wins and two draws in their opening eight games .At his current scoring pace, he could surpass the 23 goals he scored in the 2021-2022 season.
Hwang “Bull” Hee-chan also came to South Korea after a stellar run with his club. He is currently tied for fourth in the EPL’s scoring charts behind Son Heung-min. He has scored five goals this season, including a League Cup goal against Ipswich, and has recently scored in three consecutive official matches. His fighting spirit remains as strong as ever, as he showed against Aston Villa when he was punched in the face by an opponent and bounced back with a bloody nose. Son Heung-min and Hwang Hee-chan are not the only ones.
There’s also Jung Woo-young (Stuttgart), who scored a whopping eight goals at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games to help Korea win gold. He was the top scorer at the Asian Games. Originally a second striker whose strengths were more in his work rate and link-up play than his goalscoring prowess, Jung found his scoring touch in Hangzhou. “I think I can score more goals because of this experience,” he exclaimed after the Asian Games awards ceremony. Add to that “Prince of Denmark” Cho Kyu-sung (Meatwillan), who has six goals and two assists in 16 official games in his first three months in Europe, and Klinsmann’s front line has also included Hwang Eui-jo, who is struggling at Norwich City in the English Championship (second division), and Oh Hyun-gyu of Scottish giants Celtic.
Klinsmann, who said he would “prefer to win 4-3 than 1-0,” has been plagued by a string of empty promises since taking over.Only in his debut match against Colombia in March did he score a multi-goal game with two goals, but since then he has had to settle for a goalless draw or a single goal. She has yet to record a ‘multi-goal win’.Vietnam, their second opponent in this A-match, is objectively considered to be one of the weaker sides, so even if they manage to score multiple goals, it won’t mean much.Fans will be watching closely to see how Klinsmann combines his 안전놀이터 ‘best weapons’ to produce a goal feast.
