Addition of warnings for Oh Hyun-gyu and Hwang In-beom in the Jordan War
As the number of yellow cards increased for Klinsmann, who is attempting to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, warning management was put on high alert.
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 2-2 in the second leg of Group E of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup against Jordan held at Al Thumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar on the 20th (Korean time).
Korea, with 1 win and 1 draw (4 points), had the same points as Jordan, but fell behind on goal difference and was placed 2nd in the group. 카지노사이트랭크
Korea, ranked 23rd in the FIFA rankings, defied expectations and struggled against Jordan, ranked 87th.
Son Heung-min (Tottenham) took the lead with a penalty kick, but after conceding two goals, the team barely managed to level the game with an own goal in extra time in the second half.
Klinsmann’s plan to advance to the round of 16 with two consecutive wins also suffered a setback.
In the first match against Bahrain, the national team had five players – Park Yong-woo (Al Ain), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Lee Ki-je (Suwon), Cho Gyu-sung (Midtjylland), and Son Heung-min (Tottenham) – receive warnings.
Accordingly, after gaining an early victory in the match against Jordan by scoring a large number of goals, the players who were warned in the match against Bahrain received yellow cards, so they had to miss the third game against Malaysia on the 25th due to accumulated warnings, and were planning to play without the burden of cards starting from the tournament.
However, the opportunity for ‘card laundering’ was lost as the team drew with Jordan.
As the chase continued until the equalizer was scored in extra time in the second half, even Oh Hyun-kyu (Celtic) and Hwang In-beom (Zvezda) received yellow cards.
With this, the total number of players on Lake Klinsmann with warnings reached seven. Most of these players were key players, so the burden was even greater.
If these seven players receive another yellow card in the game against Malaysia, they will not be able to play in the round of 16 due to accumulated warnings.
In the Asian Cup, if a player receives one warning from the first round of the group stage to the quarterfinals, the warning disappears after the semifinals. However, if two warnings are accumulated in different games until the quarterfinals, a player cannot participate in the semifinals.
Even if the game against Malaysia is skipped without a warning, if any player with a yellow card in the round of 16 or quarterfinals receives another yellow card, he will miss the next game.
From the tournament, you have to win a game to advance to the next game, so winning is more important than managing a warning, but the departure of a key player is bound to be a blow to Klinsmann, who was aiming for the championship. 섯다
