Manager Klinsmann and coaching staff checked the physical condition of the players and began to plan in earnest.
According to the Korea Football Association on the morning of the 6th (Korea Standard Time), the national team led by Jürgen Klinsmann conducted training at Cardiff International Sports Campus in Wales, England. This day’s training was the first time that all 25 members of the call-up list gathered in September. The national team has gathered in Cardiff since the 4th, and the main team, which includes eight K-League players, joined on the 5th.
The national team will play Wales at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff at 3:45 a.m. on the 8th and Saudi Arabia at St. James’ Park in Newcastle upon Tyne, England at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th. The national team is on par with Wales with one draw in all-time matches, and is inferior to Saudi Arabia with four wins, seven draws and six losses.
According to the video released by the Korea Football Association, the players warmed up lightly with stretching in their first training and began full-fledged training. Unlike usual, European players such as Son Heung-min, Kim Min-jae, and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton Wanderers), who joined without long-distance flights, looked bright.
