Klinsmann, with Son Heung-min (Tottenham) excluded, finished the first half against Tunisia without scoring. They took the initiative and played the game, but were unable to create a decisive opportunity.
The national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany), ended the first half with a score of 0-0 in the friendly match against Tunisia held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 13th.
Korea used the 4-2-3-1 formation on this day. Cho Gyu-seong (Midtjylland) was at the forefront, and second-line attackers were Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), and Lee Jae-seong (Mainz).
In the midfield, Hong Hyun-seok (Gent) and Park Yong-woo (Al Ain) worked together. Initially, the spot in midfield was Hwang In-beom (Zvezda), but it was changed to Hong Hyun-seok just before the game.스포츠토토
According to the Korea Football Association (KFA), Hwang In-beom was left out of the starting lineup after suffering some discomfort in his left adductor muscle (inner thigh) while warming up before the game.
The back four defense consisted of Lee Ki-je (Suwon), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), Jeong Seung-hyun, and Seol Young-woo (Ulsan), and the goalkeeper gloves were worn by Kim Seung-gyu (Al-Shabab). Kim Min-jae wore the captain’s armband in place of Son Heung-min, who missed the starting lineup due to groin pain.
The initial flow was frustrating. The midfield battle was so intense that neither team had a single shot for nearly 20 minutes in the first half.
In the 21st minute of the first half, Hwang Hee-chan broke through the left flank after receiving Kim Min-jae’s accurate long kick, but the cross was inaccurate. The first shot of the day came as Cho Gyu-seong, who immediately stole the opponent’s ball from the front of the box, hit a right-footed shot.
Without Son Heung-min, Korea was unable to open the attack. Lee Kang-in and Hwang Hee-chan on the left and right flanks worked diligently, but were unable to connect until the end.
On the contrary, there was a dizzying scene where Tunisia’s Aissa Raiduni’s right-footed shot from right in front of the arc in the 39th minute of the first half missed our goal.
In the end, Korea failed to seize any significant opportunities in the first half and ended the first half without scoring.
