It was a moment when I could feel the popularity of soccer team aces Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Lee Kang-in.
The national team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play a friendly match against Colombia, a South American powerhouse, at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium at 8:20 pm on the 24th.
The Colombia match was the first A match since last year’s World Cup in Qatar and also Klinsman’s debut match, so it received a lot of attention even before the match.
The national team reached the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar for the first time in 12 years since 2010. They were placed in the same group as Uruguay, Ghana, and Portugal, so a thorny path was expected, but they advanced to the round of 16 with 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss, and 2nd place in the group.
Although they were unfortunately defeated by Brazil in the round of 16, they were highly praised for properly using the active and leading pro-active football that former coach Paulo Bento had prepared for four years.
Expectations for the national team were so high that all 37,000 seats in the stadium were sold out that day, and 10,000 spectators filled the stadium.온라인카지노
I could feel the popularity even at the moment when the starting list was called.
Previously, coach Klinsmann put forward Kim Seung-kyu as goalkeeper, Kim Jin-soo, Kim Tae-hwan, Kim Min-jae, Kim Young-kwon as goalkeeper, Jung Woo-young (33), Hwang In-beom, Lee Jae-seong as midfielder, Son Heung-min, Cho Kyu-seong, and Jung Woo-young (23) as offense.
The crowd cheered with warm applause and loud voices whenever the names of the players were called.
Among them, the three players who cheered the most were Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Lee Kang-in, who could be said to be the aces of the national team. When starting players Min-jae Kim and Heung-min Son were called, they shouted “Min-jae Kim! Min-jae Kim!” and “Heung-min Son! Heung-min Son!”
Even when Lee Kang-in, who started from the bench, was called out, there was a huge cheer and “Lee Kang-in! Lee Kang-in!” A call followed.
Son Heung-min raised the profile of Korean football while playing for Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League. Kim Min-jae, who moved to Napoli, Italy this season, is leading the rise of his team while performing his best.
Lee Kang-in is also active as an ace in Mallorca, and he delighted the fans by boasting a sharp left-footed kick at the World Cup.
Meanwhile, the game scheduled for 8:00 pm was delayed by about 20 minutes due to circumstances on the part of the Colombian team.
