Hwang Hee-chan’s participation in the training is good news.”

The South Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, will play its third match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup Group E qualifying match at Al-Zanub Stadium in Al-Wakra, Qatar, at 8:30 p.m. on the 25th (Korea time).

Klinsmann won the first leg 3-1 against Bahrain. Hwang In-beom’s first goal and Lee Kang-in’s crazy performance and multiple goals gave him a good start.

Afterwards, he met Jordan. Son, who had remained silent in the first match, scored his first goal of the 2024 Asian Cup when he scored a penalty kick against Jordan.

South Korea took the lead against Jordan with Son Heung-min’s first goal, but it has not been able to keep pace since then.

Klinsmann allowed Park Yong-woo to turn the tables after giving up an own goal and giving up an additional run.

The slashed Clinsmann pulled the reins in the second half. However, he failed to take any significant chances. In particular, he struggled with Jordan’s bed soccer.

Klinsmann continued to push, and at the end of the second half, Hwang In-beom pulled an own goal from Jordan to bring the game back to square one 2-2.

However, there were no extra points. Klinsmann had to settle for a draw against Jordan.

It was a game that the Clinsman team was expected to win. However, he only scored one point in his poor performance.

Klinsmann will now meet Malaysia, which has been confirmed to be eliminated from the round of 16. It is a game in which the final ranking is decided.

If South Korea wins against Malaysia, it will secure seven points. If Jordan overpower Bahrain, the points will be the same.

The Asian Cup requires multiple points to compete for the top spot in the group on goal difference. If Jordan loses to Bahrain, it will be confirmed that South Korea will advance to the round of 16 for the top spot. If it draws with Malaysia, it will be in second place.

It is not very likely, but if South Korea loses against Malaysia and Bahrain wins against Jordan, it could fall to third place.

If South Korea heads to the round of 16 as the top of the group, it is most likely to meet Japan in the round of 16, Iran in the quarterfinals and Qatar in the semifinals.

On the contrary, if they advance to the round of 16 in second place, they are likely to meet Saudi Arabia or Thailand and face Australia in the quarterfinals and Iraq in the semifinals.

British media “Sports Kidna” predicted a 2-1 victory for the Clinsman, predicting, “Considering the recent performance and performance, South Korea will win a close victory.”

“The good news for South Korea is that Hwang Hee-chan is competing for a start after training,” he said, referring to the positive part.

Meanwhile, the British media “Sports Mall” predicted that South Korea will form a starting lineup of Son Heung-min, Oh Hyun-kyu; Lee Jae-sung, Jung Woo-young, Park Jin-seop, Lee Kang-in; Kim Jin-soo, Kim Min-jae, Jung Seung-hyun, Seol Young-woo and Cho Hyun-woo.

Cho Kyu-sung, who has missed many opportunities and is going scoreless, and Park Yong-woo, who scored an own goal in the second game against Jordan, predicted that he will be excluded from the starting list.
