‘Clins Manho New Face’ Will FC Seoul’s Kim Joo-seong (22) have a chance to debut?
The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (58), will face Peru at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium on the 16th and El Salvador at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium on the 20th.
On the 5th,안전놀이터 coach Klinsman announced the list of A-match convocations for June. The March A match was held shortly after coach Klinsman took office and was based on the entry for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. However, this time, coach Klinsman checked the K-League and overseas players for three months to form a roster.
Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju United), Park Yong-woo (Ulsan Hyundai), and Hong Hyun-seok (KAA Gent), who were selected for the first time in the national team, and Park Ji-su (Portimonense) and Won Doo-jae (Kimcheon Sangmu), who were first selected for the Klinsmann team, stood out. Attention is focused on Kim Joo-sung.
Kim Joo-seong is a defender who has grown through the FC Seoul youth system from Osan Middle School to Osan High School. He joined Seoul in 2019 and gradually increased his opportunities for the two seasons. Kim Joo-seong joined Sangmu in 2021, digested his military service, and rejoined Seoul in the second half of the 2022 season.
He has established himself as Seoul’s main defender this season. Kim Joo-seong earned the absolute trust of Seoul coach Ahn Ik-soo and played in all 18 league games as a starter. Despite forming the youngest central defense in the K-League with Lee Han-beom (20), he led the defense stably and was even chosen by coach Klinsman.
He also has a national team career. Kim Joo-sung played 9 games for the U-17 national team and 2 games for the U-20 national team. He played the 2022 Asian Cup qualification and Asian Championship with the U-23 national team, and made his national team debut at the 2022 East Asian Football Federation (EAFF) E-1 Championship (East Asian Cup).
The selection of Kim Joo-sung is related to the rise of key resources. First of all, Kim Young-kwon will not be able to participate in this evaluation due to a hamstring injury. Like Kim Young-gwon, Kim Joo-seong uses his left foot as the main foot, so he is looking forward to the role of a substitute. Moreover, since Kim Young-gwon is heading towards his mid-thirties, it seems that he is trying to check Kim Joo-seong from a long-term perspective.
While Kim Min-jae (Napoli) failed to join the team due to basic military training, another left-footed defender, Kwon Kyung-won (31, Gamba Osaka), also left due to an injury just before the call. If coach Klinsman emphasizes the combination of left-footed and right-footed defenders like the previous coach Paulo Bento, Kim Joo-sung’s chances of playing are even higher.
After joining the national team for the first time, Kim Joo-seong emphasized that this call-up was the starting point. Kim Joo-seong said, “Kim Min-jae and Kim Young-kwon are very good players.
He also showed his strength and willingness to learn. Kim Joo-seong said, “I tried to play with a sense of stability in Seoul. In particular, coach Ahn gave me detailed guidance on the defensive line and tactics. I also learned a lot about the direction of the build-up pass, so I want to show it well. “he said.
It is an A match in June that needs to pay attention to the left foot of the defender born in 2000, Klins Manho New Face.
