‘Injury right before the World Cup’ Park Ji-soo… “Kim Minjae’s vacancy is me”

National football team defender Park Ji-soo (29, Portimonense) fills the gap in the central defense of Klinsmann.스포츠토토

The soccer team led by coach Jürgen Klinsmann (Germany) will play an A-match evaluation match against Peru at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 16th. On the 20th, they move to Daejeon to face El Salvador.

On the 12th, at the first convocation training held at the Gudeok Stadium in Busan, a welcome face was seen. This is Park Ji-soo, who suddenly entered the Portuguese league in January of this year.

Last winter was harsh for Park Ji-soo. Through the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he expected his first World Cup in his life, but injuries hindered him. With his selection highly likely, on November 11 last year, one day before the announcement of the final list, he injured his ankle in an evaluation match against Iceland and fell off the horse.

It was regrettable because he was constantly called in the Paulo Bento (Portugal) system, and the selection was strong.

At the time, Park Ji-soo said on his social network service (SNS), “I feel sorry for the sudden injury because I have shed countless drops of sweat over the past 4 years to stand on the best stage that all players dream of.” .

Every new story in life.

After recovering from the injury, he moved to Portuguese first division Portimonense in January this year and advanced to the European stage. There was help from Bento’s former coach, who unfortunately couldn’t be together.

He is well aware of Park Ji-soo’s strengths and the characteristics of his country’s league, so he is known to have highly recommended his adaptation and future development.

His strong point is a stable defense, and he participated in all 14 games starting with his debut, helping his team to remain in the first division. Off the field, they had a wedding in December of last year and enjoyed a double celebration.

It was a national team that was very regretful when leaving, but this time it is different.

Park Ji-soo, who has played in 14 A matches, seems to have a clear presence. Italy’s Serie A best defender Kim Min-jae (Napoli), who is the nucleus of central defense, will miss basic military training, while Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan) will miss due to injury.

Park Ji-soo should minimize the gap on the right side of the central defense.

Head Coach Klinsmann formed a team with the main players in the round of 16 of the World Cup in the two consecutive A-matches in March, which was the debut stage for the Korean command tower.

This time, he selected players for the purpose of examining players who matched his color by looking at overseas and K-League. It is called the ‘real Klinsmann 1st period’.

Park Ji-soo, who succeeded in advancing to the European stage and becoming a starting player in about half a year after overcoming the pain of falling from the World Cup, draws attention to what kind of activity he will perform in 7 months.
