    Jürgen Klinsmann, head coach of the South Korea national soccer team.


    Klinsmann names his squad for the September A-match schedule as he looks for his first win in charge. Jürgen Klinsmann's team is in need of a quick win, but with a number of injuries to key players in the attacking lineup, 토토사이트 the coach's options are being closely watched.


    In a press release at 1 p.m. on Sept. 28, Klinsmann's squad will reveal the players who will take part in the September trials in England. The team will play Wales on Sept. 8 at 3:45 a.m. at Cardiff City Stadium in Cardiff, England. They will then face Saudi Arabia on Sept. 13 at 1:30 p.m. at St. James' Park in Newcastle, England.


    Klinsmann, who set sail in March, has played four matches in South Korea so far, drawing two and losing two.


    In Klinsmann's debut, South Korea drew 2-2 with Colombia before falling 1-2 against Uruguay. In June, Klinsmann also failed to secure a win. After a 0-1 loss to Peru, South Korea could only manage a 1-1 draw against El Salvador, a team they were hoping to beat for their first win.


    After failing to win in front of a lopsided home crowd, South Korea will be traveling to Europe for the first time in two years and 10 months for a series of trials.


    Both Wales and Saudi Arabia are tricky opponents, so South Korea's victory is far from assured, and they don't have a fully fit squad.


    Lee Kang-in unavailable for September A-match call-up due to injury.


    First up is Lee Kang-in (PSG), who has been a mainstay of the national team since the last World Cup in Qatar 2022. Lee suffered a left quadriceps injury in a match for his club. An official from the Korea Football Association said, "We received the news of Lee Kang-in's injury from PSG. It is difficult for him to be called up for the September match."


    Lee Kang-in isn't the only injury in the attacking lineup. Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic) was diagnosed with calf pain earlier this month and will need four to six weeks of rehabilitation and rest. Cho Kyu-sung (Mitwillan), who has been on fire since reaching Denmark, suffered a minor hamstring injury.


    Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton) also suffered a hamstring discomfort in his start on the 26th and was substituted after 45 minutes.


    Despite the absence of some key players, 스포츠토토 the good news is that Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Kim Min-jae (Bayern Munich), and other key players in the defense are expected to be available.

    In June, Son underwent hernia surgery ahead of his call-up to the A team and was not in full fitness. As a result, he only appeared as a late substitute in the second match against El Salvador. Kim Min-jae was called up for basic military training in June and did not travel with the national team. If he is named to the September roster, it will be his first call-up in six months.


    New players are also expected to join the squad. Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic) and Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), who moved to Europe through the transfer market this summer, are eligible to join the A squad due to their European call-ups and the nature of the trials. Neither was named to the roster for the first Olympic qualifier in Changwon, Gyeongnam, during the September A match, so their chances of making the A team are high.


    Meanwhile, players on the September roster who are playing domestically will be called up on Sept. 4 to leave for England. Players who play overseas, such as in Europe and the Middle East, will join the squad in England. Klinsmann, who is currently in the United States, 스포츠토토맨 will meet with the team in England.
