Even coach Bento admitted … In fact, 90% of the final applications have been confirmed

[골닷컴, 신문로] Reporter Kang Dong-hoon = “Many of the players selected this time will be included in the final bids for the World Cup.”

Coach Paulo Bento (53, Portugal) could not hide his heart at the press conference for the announcement of the September national team call-up list held at the Football Center located on Sinmun-ro on the 13th. In fact, it’s safe to say that about 90% of Bento’s final entry plan for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is complete.

The Korean national football team, led by coach Bento, will play their first evaluation match against Costa Rica at the hometown sports center on the 23rd, and the second evaluation game against Cameroon at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the four a day later. The list includes captain Son Heung-min (30, Tottenham Hotspur) and vice-captain Kim Young-kwon (32, Ulsan Hyundai), as well as Kim Min-jae (25, Napoli), Hwang Ui -jo (30), Hwang In-beom (25, Olympiacos), and Hwang Hee-chan (26, Wolverhampton Wanderers) and other players who have played an important role in the past were named.

Kang-in Lee (21), who is the biggest concern of football fans, was also selected. Recently, Kang-in Lee appeared regularly for his team Mallorca (Spain) and played a central role in the attack. In particular, he has helped in the last three games. In the middle of such special performances, coach Bento changed his mind and was called again after a year and 6 months.

In addition, Kim Jin-su (30), Baek Seung-ho (25, Jeonbuk Hyundai), Kwon Chang-hoon (28, Kim Cheon Sang-mu), Na Sang-ho (26, FC Seoul), etc. Mainz 05) on board. Rookie Hyun-jun Yang (20, Gangwon FC), who has been active in the K-League recently, wore the Taegeuk mark for the first time.

This assembly is more important than ever. This is because it is the final evaluation match with the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar two months away. Of course, a friendly match is scheduled for the last day of next month, but this is the last time that all members, including foreign players, can gather.

In that sense, as long as there are no major variables such as injuries or difficult conditions, there is a great possibility that the 26 players assembled this time will actually join the final bid. There may be some changes between the two months, but in the meantime, given Bento’s trends, it’s unlikely that there will be any major changes.

In fact, even if we only compare the list for last June and this month’s call-up, Kim Min-jae and Lee Jae-sung were missing due to injuries, so if we leave the exceptions out, Son Jun-ho (30, Shandong Mae Taishan), Yoon Jong-gyu (24, FC Seoul), Yang Hyun-jun, and Lee Kang-in excluded. No new appointments Rather than experimenting with bringing out a new face, it is clear that he will maintain the current frame and put more pressure on stability as much as possible.

Bento also said, “There is still time until the World Cup, and the players have many games left in their teams. After watching this call, I will think about the next call. “It will be included in the record, but It remains to be seen which players will be included.”
