Coach Jürgen Klinsmann, a legendary striker in German football, gave advice to Oh Hyun-gyu, who will be responsible for the future of Korean football.
The national soccer team led by head coach Klinsman drew 2-2 in a friendly match against South American powerhouse Colombia held at Munsu Soccer Stadium in Ulsan on the 24th.
The national team took the lead with Son Heung-min’s opening goal in the 10th minute of the first half, and Son Heung-min scored another goal with a free kick just before the end of the first half to make it 2-0. However, in the 2nd and 4th minutes of the second half, they conceded 2 runs in a row, and unfortunately the game ended in a draw.
On this day, coach Klinsman sent Cho Kyu-seong, who played a key role in the Qatar World Cup last year, as a starting striker. Oh Hyeon-kyu, who accompanied the World Cup as a reserve member, waited on the bench and was not put in until 15 minutes into the second half.토토사이트
Oh Hyeon-gyu actively ran the ground for about 30 minutes. He didn’t record any offensive points, such as scoring or assisting, but he did make some good shots as he continued to compete with his opponents.
Oh Hyun-gyu is evaluated as a striker who will be responsible for the future of Korean football. Expectations are high that a new generation of players such as Oh Hyun-kyu will solve the biggest problem of Korean football, the lack of goal-making ability.
It is a great fortune for Oh Hyun-gyu that Klinsman, who was famous as the best striker in Germany when he was a player, became the national team coach. Watching and learning from a person who was a world-class striker through national team training is not something that any player can easily experience.
In fact, Oh Hyun-kyu also revealed that he learned a lot from coach Klinsman.
Oh Hyeon-gyu, whom I met in the mixed zone after the game, said, “You order selfish things from strikers.”
He meant that as a front-line striker who had to score goals, he needed to have the mindset to finish without hesitation when the opportunity came.
Oh Hyun-gyu, who said, “Of course, he said that I have to be selfish in a good way.” He said, “I think I’m trying to maximize what I can do better. He said the map was a big help.
He also added that he “told me to be more greedy as a striker and as a striker,” adding that he learned the virtues necessary for an attacker.
