Without Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Klinsmann goes with Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic), Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) in search of a first win.
The South Korean national soccer team, led by Jürgen Klinsmann (GER), announced its starting lineup ahead of its exhibition match against Peru at the Asiad Stadium in Busan on Saturday. According to the announcement, Oh Hyun-kyu will start up front, while Hwang Hee-chan and Lee Kang-in will play on the left and right flanks. Lee Kang-in will be the centerpiece of South Korea’s attacking tactics, switching between midfield and forward. South Korea’s ace and captain, Son Heung-min, is recovering from sports hernia surgery. For now, he’ll be on the bench.
With Plan A unavailable, Klinsmann will have to come up with a new attacking combination to face Peru, who are ranked 21st in the FIFA rankings. South Korea’s FIFA ranking is 27th. Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), Won Doo-jae (Gimcheon Commerce), and Lee Jae-sung (Mainz) will start in the midfield. The back four has also changed significantly. Kim Min-jae (Napoli) is out due to military training and Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan) is out due to injury. From left to right, Lee Ki-je (Suwon Samsung), Jeong Seung-hyun (Ulsan), Park Ji-soo (Portimonense), and Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju United) will start.먹튀검증
Ahn Hyun-beom will be making his debut for the first time. Goalkeeper Kim Seung-kyu (Al-Shabab) will be in goal. Klinsmann, who took over the reins of South Korea in February, missed out on a debut win in his first two A matches in March (a 2-2 draw with Colombia and a 1-2 loss to Uruguay).
