Even with Lee Kang-in, attackers can’t save the day, as bad as 4 consecutive goals in a row

Concerns are mounting over the national soccer team, which hasn’t won in four games since Jürgen Klinsmann took over.

While the defense, which has conceded in all four games, is the main culprit, the offense has been unable to find the back of the net at the right time.

In their two June friendlies against Peru and El Salvador, the team recorded a whopping 29 shots on goal, but only one found the back of the net.

Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), who has developed into one of the best technicians in the Spanish Primera Liga, played full-time in both A matches and showed off his thunderous left-footed kick, but the strikers were unable to capitalize on their chances.

Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic), who started as a frontline striker in the first friendly against Peru in June, had a crucial chance in the 27th minute when he received an exquisite pass from Lee Kang-in and found himself one-on-one with the goalkeeper, but his shot was overpowering and well wide of the goal.

Against El Salvador, Cho Kyu-sung missed a crucial scoring chance in the 13th minute. After winning the ball near the halfway line, Lee Kang-in wasted no time in passing the ball to Cho Kyu-sung with a left-footed out-front kick, giving him the chance to beat the goalkeeper. However, Cho’s right-footed shot was well wide of the goal.

In the 19th minute, a corner kick off the foot of Lee Kang-in found Cho Kyu-sung with a no-mark header, but again, it went over the bar.

When Klinsmann took over, he promised to play attacking soccer to win “4-3 rather than 1-0,” but the strikers showed serious problems in goal determination.

In a press conference immediately after the El Salvador game, Klinsmann said, “Son Heung-min is the only player who can play 90 minutes continuously,” as if to blame the player for the poor performance.바카라

While Hwang Eui-jo (FC Seoul) kept hope alive with an early goal against El Salvador, Oh Hyun-gyu and Cho Kyu-sung, who have been trusted since March, have generally fallen short of expectations.

This has led some to once again call for the promotion of In-Joo Gyu (Ulsan Hyundai), who is currently the top scorer in the K League 1.
