What was manager Jurgen Klinsmann thinking when he selected Hwang Hee-chan (27, Wolverhampton)?
Klinsmann will meet Wales at Cardiff City Stadium 온라인바카라 in Wales on September 8 and Saudi Arabia at St James’ Park in Newcastle, England at 1:30 am on the 13th. The team will gather at Incheon International Airport on the 4th of next month and immediately depart for Wales, where the first match will be held. Overseas players are expected to join locally.
The Korea Football Association announced the September call-up list through a press release on the 28th. European strikers Hwang Hee-chan, Cho Kyu-seong, and Oh Hyun-kyu, who were injured during their team’s game, are all included, which is controversial. Hwang Eui-jo, who is not even on the list at Nottingham Forest, is included. Lee Kang-in, who had been nailed by PSG early on, saying, “I can’t go to the national team convocation in September,” was excluded.
Hwang Hee-chan injured his hamstring against Everton on the 26th and was replaced after only playing the first half. The hamstring is difficult to heal easily, and it is an area where injuries recur frequently. Hwang Hee-chan has already suffered from multiple injuries.
Coach Klinsman explained, “In the case of Hwang Hee-chan, we included him in the roster because he continued to communicate with his team and judged that there was no difficulty in joining this call-up.”
However, Wolverhampton is very cautious about Hwang Hee-chan’s injury. On the 28th, ‘Express & Star’ said, “Hwang Hee-chan is scheduled to undergo a detailed examination for a hamstring injury. Hwang Hee-chan is expected to miss the League Cup match against Blackpool on the 30th and the Crystal Palace match on September 3rd.”
From common sense, it is very difficult to predict that a player who was absent from his team due to a hamstring injury will recover in just a few days and fly to Wales to play against Wales on the 8th. Even if he plays, it will not help Hwang Hee-chan’s condition. There are concerns that only Klins is overreacting to recruit injured players in the evaluation matches, not the Asian Cup finals.
If key strikers such as Cho Kyu-seong, Oh Hyun-kyu, and Hwang Hee-chan are injured, they may be able to select substitutes who are in good form in the K-League, such as Joo Min-gyu, and experiment with them. However, Klinsman insisted on calling injured players until the end
