Klinsmann departs for UAE, Jeon Hoon-ji aims to win the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years

Klinsmann, who is trying to win the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years, will take the lead.

The national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will leave for Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the training site for the Incheon International Airport at 11:40 p.m. on the 2nd.

The national team has been called up since April 26. The team was called up mainly by European leagues, which are facing a break, and K-League players, who finished the 2023 season, and started training with an emphasis on recovering their physical condition at a hotel in Seoul.

Before leaving for the off-season training site, the team will attend the 2023 Korea Football Association Awards, which will take place at the Mayfield Hotel in Gangseo-gu, Seoul at 5 p.m. This event will also serve as an opening ceremony. After the event, the team will move to Incheon International Airport and immediately board a plane to the UAE.랭크카지노

European leagues such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), Oh Hyun-kyu and Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic) will join the team from Abu Dhabi. Kim Seung-kyu (Al-Shabab) and Park Yong-woo (Al-Ain), who are active in the Middle East, will also join the team.

On the other hand, Lee Kang-in (Paris Saint-Germain) is scheduled to play until the Super Cup final against Toulouse on the 4th and join the national team. Lee Kang-in, who has not yet won the trophy personally, reportedly coordinated the timing of joining with coach Klinsmann to play in the final.

The Korean team will have an exhibition game against Iraq at the Abu Dhabi Stadium in New York City on June 6 (Korea time). It will be a chance to check his physical condition before the opening of the competition. He will enter Qatar on June 10, the venue for the upcoming showdown.

At the Asian Cup, Korea is in Group E. It will play its first group match against Bahrain at 8:30 p.m. on June 15, and its second match against Jordan at 8:30 p.m. on June 20. It will then play its final group match against Malaysia at 8:30 p.m. on June 25.

Korea is aiming to win the championship for the first time in 64 years after two competitions in 1960. “I have faith that I can perform well not because I am full of confidence, but because there are players who can do that,” Klinsmann said, expressing confidence. “I will definitely win and come back.”
