Bentuho, evaluation match against Costa Rica at Goyang Sports Complex on the 23rd
“I like the whole preparation process…you play it how you want”
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Jang Bo-in = Coach Paulo Bento, who leads the Korean men’s soccer team, continues to worry about how to use Lee Kang-in (21, Mallorca).
In a press conference held online on the 22nd, a day before the evaluation match against Costa Rica, coach Bento said, “Lee Kang-in will be used when the team needs him. He’ n decision,” he said.
The Korean national team will play a friendly against Costa Rica on the 23rd at 8:00pm at the Goyang Sports Complex.
Before the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar opens, the only chance to experience the ‘complete’ including foreign players is this time with Costa Rica and Cameroon (27th), two evaluation matches.
This is an important period for both Bento coaches, who have to build the best members, and for the players who need to be in it.
Among them, the biggest concern is whether Lee Kang-in, who returned to the national team after 1 year and 6 months, will surely establish himself in the Bentuho.
However, Bento was wary of focusing all the attention on Lee Kang-in.
He stressed, “I know the media and fans are very interested in individual players, but from the coach’s point of view, the team is more important. You have to think about the team, not the individual players.”
Regarding the Costa Rica game, coach Bento said, “We prepared as we always do. At the beginning of the week, we paid the most attention to the recovery of the players. Some players joined late and it needed a bit more recovery,” said Bento. The process was good. I’m going to have a good game tomorrow so I can get results and play the way I want.”
As previously announced, the national team intend to try a ‘change’ in the A game in September.
Bento said, “At the beginning of the call, we said we would try different things, but it’s about the tactical system. I don’t plan to use the same tactical system in both games,” he explained that
He continued, “We have a style of play that we have built for a long time from the beginning, and Heung-Min Son has been using it in different positions as a winger, striker, and under striker. it will be used in the next game, and we are trying to make the most of it.”
We will also check the defense combination to keep the national team strong through various options.
Bento, who called three of the five backs, Kim Tae-hwan (Ulsan), Kim Moon-hwan (Jeonbuk), and Yoon Jong-gyu (Seoul), said to the right back, “It’s not to worry, but to look at options. He is a player, but he was chosen to see how he plays. After comparing various possibilities, I will think more about deciding which World Cup member to be.”
