Can Lee Kang-in change? Bentuho vs Costa Rica over the weekend

How to use Lee Kang-in, who returned after 1 year and 6 months of ‘attention’… The role overlapped with Hwang In-beom in ‘Prince’

Kang-in Lee, who will be responsible for supplying the national team

(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Hong-seok Ahn = The final test for boarding the Bentu to the Qatar 2022 World Cup begins.

The Korean national football team, led by coach Paulo Bento, will play an evaluation match against Costa Rica at Goyang Sports Complex at 8 pm on the 23rd.

This September will be the last match period designated by FIFA before the Qatar World Cup, which starts in November.

Therefore, the match against Costa Rica and Cameroon on the 27th (Seoul World Cup Stadium) is effectively the last chance to test key players in one place before Bento confirms the final roster.

The national team can play one more evaluation match just before leaving for Qatar, but this is because it is difficult to call foreign players.

So, for Bento, the goal against Costa Rica is clear. It is to choose the ‘best player’ in Korean football.

Bentuho hasn’t made any major changes to the player face in the meantime, so I’ve even heard the voice of ‘that herb and that rice’.

However, as Lee Kang-in (Mallorca), who raised his attacking points for four consecutive games in Spanish La Liga, made a surprise return to the national team after a year and six months, the atmosphere of change is be sensed.

Bentuho’s starting setup can vary greatly depending on how he uses Lee Kang-in, who can play from midfield to second attack, and sometimes even up front.

If Bento takes Lee Kang-in moderately, there is a possibility that Hwang In-beom (Olympiacos), the ‘Prince of Lake Bento’ whose roles overlap to a large extent, will be narrowed down.

It is possible to promote a win-win by placing In-beom Hwang in the center and Kang-in Lee on the flank, but this is a very aggressive option, and considering the strength of the opponents that will be met in the finals, it can be irrational.

It seems unlikely that Bento will prove Lee Kang-in as an ‘option candidate’.

Like Kang-in Lee, he can increase his chances of being selected as a priority option for coach Bento by actively participating in the defense and moving faster when there is no ball.

Kangwon FC striker Yang Hyun-joon, first selected for the national team for his outstanding performance with eight goals and four assists in the K-League 1 this season, is also expected to be a significant variable.

Bento predicted the change directly, saying, “I’m trying to play in a slightly different way in these two games.”

It must be decided on Kim Min-jae (Napoli), who is the central axis of the defence, and who will be chosen as the ‘centre back duo’ through these two games.

The three foreign attackers, Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Hwang Ui-jo (Olympiacos), and Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), who are the Bentoo’s best weapons, are going for a ‘firepower check’.

All three players failed to score a goal in their team, but Son Heung-min exploded a hat-trick in the match against Leicester City just before the call, blowing away the burden.

Fans expect Son Heung-min to wear the newly announced national team red shirt and start scoring again.

In the FIFA rankings, Korea is 28th and Costa Rica is 34th.

In the opponent’s record, Korea leads with 4 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses.

Although Korea has a slightly better record, Costa Rica, who advanced to the World Cup finals three times in a row and reached the quarter-finals at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, are an unassailable North and Central American powerhouse. ignore

This time, after playing a re-continental match with New Zealand, they went to Qatar. They were the last to qualify for the finals out of 32 countries.

Costa Rica has a strong point in counter-attack with Joel Campbell (Leon), the front line striker who has played for a long time in Europe.

Keylor Navas (Paris Saint-Germain), who is considered the best goalkeeper in the history of North and Central American football, has been removed from this list.
