Who will be the goaltender who will be responsible for the front line of Hwang Sun-hong’s match against Thailand.

South Korea will play the third Group C match against Thailand at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 21st.

On the 26th, he will play the fourth away game at Rajamangala Stadium in Thailand.

Coach Hwang Sun-hong will direct the A team’s two consecutive games in Thailand as the interim head coach after former coach Jurgen Klinsmann was replaced.

Attention is focusing on who Hwang, who played as a leading striker in the semifinals of the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup and a leading striker for the national team when he was active, will be at the forefront of the preliminary match against Thailand.

Coach Hwang selected Cho Kyu-sung (Mitt Whelan) and Joo Min-kyu (Ulsan) for the front line striker position at this call-up.

Unless the zero-top tactic of raising Son Heung-min (Tottenham) to the front is in operation, one of the two is likely to take charge of the front line in the match against Thailand.

In the national team’s experience, Cho Kyu-sung, who has been in charge of the front line since the 2022 Qatar World Cup, is ahead.

However, the recent trend has not been good due to the sluggishness of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup and various issues last month.

Cho Kyu-sung played in a total of six matches (four starts and two replacements) until three group matches and three tournaments at the Asian Cup, but only scored one goal.

The first and last header goal scored just before the end of the match in the round of 16 against Saudi Arabia.

His team also drew attention for scoring goals in three consecutive matches since the opening of the Danish league, but his performance has been declining since the second half of the year, starting with the Asian Cup. The score right before joining the national team was also a penalty kick, not a field goal.

There is a possibility that Joo Min-kyu, who was selected for the A national team at the latest age (33 years, 333 days), will make a surprise start.

Amid the need for a change in the offense, which was sluggish in the Asian Cup, setting up Joo Min-kyu, who has recently boasted the sharpest toes in the K-League of professional football, could also help reform the atmosphere.

Joo Min-kyu is the top scorer who scored 56 goals in the K League 1 in the last three seasons.

He was the top scorer twice during this period, and in the 2022 season, he was tied with Cho Kyu-sung (then Jeonbuk) with 17 goals, but unfortunately he missed the top scorer in a row due to his long playing time.

“No player in the K-League has scored more than 50 goals in the past three years. No further explanation is needed,” Hwang said when announcing the national team’s roster.

If Joo Min-kyu, who was shunned by only Paulo Bento and Clins under the former foreign coach system, hits the ground against Thailand, he will also set the record for the oldest A-match debut (33 years and 343 days). 토토사이트
