TEAM Klinsman’s first expedition has many interesting points to watch.
The Korea Football Association announced on the 29th that it had agreed with the Wales Football Association to hold a friendly match between Wales and the national team on September 7. The venue is Cardiff City Stadium in Wales, and the game time is undecided.
It has been 5 years and 6 months since the national team went on a European expedition to face a European country in March 2018, after the expedition to Northern Ireland and Poland. It is an opportunity to see how much Korea’s competitiveness has developed in the middle of Europe.
The June A match list has not been announced yet, but September is the third call for TEAM Klinsman. You can see how well the new faces who can appear from the second call-up have adapted to the team. As Korea is challenging to win the 2024 Asian Cup, it is also a task for coach Jurgen Klinsmann to quickly adapt new freshmen to the team.
For these tasks, Wales are a very suitable opponent. Looking at the FIFA rankings alone, Wales is 26th and Korea is 27th. The results of recent international competitions are not too bad. At Euro 2020, he reached the round of 16, and in 2022, he reached the World Cup after 64 years. At the FIFA World Cup Qatar, they were eliminated in the group stage.
In this head-to-head match, the Tottenham derby could be made. Wales has no world-class players as Gareth Bale, the top star following Ryan Giggs, has retired, but is still a strong organizational team. The player at the center is Son Heung-min’s best friend, Ben Davis.
Davis is also well known to Korean fans as Son Heung-min’s best friend. Their friendship was further highlighted during Bale’s time at Tottenham. At the time, Bale made a fun combination called ‘Welsh Mafia’ and shared friendship with Joe Roden, Davis, and Son Heung-min. Son Heung-min was also known to visit a Korean restaurant after the game with Davis and Rodon, which became a hot topic for fans.
Davies said:토토사이트 “I have a lot of friends. I don’t have any special friends in football, but at Tottenham I’m closest to Rodden, Eric Dyer and Heung-Min Son. I’ve seen them at Tottenham for several years. There are also Christian Eriksen and Welsh players.” He confessed that he was very close with him.
Currently, Rodon, who left Tottenham on loan to Stade Rennes, is also close with Son Heung-min. Since Rodon is also the main player of the Wales national team, it is expected that he will directly clash with Son Heung-min.
