‘Time to prove it’ for Klinsmann after stay-at-home, as he rallies in decisive Wales

South Korean soccer ace Son Heung-min is hanging up his Tottenham captain’s armband for a while and taking the captain’s armband of the South Korean national team on his arm as he heads off to an away European trial. Son was all smiles as he and his teammates arrived in Wales for the ‘showdown’.

According to an “inside cam” video released by the Korea Football Association (KFA) on April 4, Son traveled by train from London to Cardiff, Wales.

The South Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jürgen Klinsmann, will play Wales in an A-match trial at 3:45 a.m. on Aug. 8 at Cardiff City Stadium in Wales, England. The team will then travel to Newcastle, England, to face Saudi Arabia in an exhibition match at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th. It will be the first time in five years and six months that the South Korean national soccer team has traveled to Europe, having traveled to Northern Ireland and Poland in March 2018 under Shin Tae-yong.

The first scene of the inside cam footage showed Hwang arriving at the national team’s accommodation. Hwang, who was transferred to Zvezda, Serbia, arrived late on the night of Feb. 2 local time and went straight to his quarters for a personal workout. According to the time captured on the screen, the workout lasted until 2 a.m.

Afterward, goalkeeper Kim Seung-kyu (Al-Shabab), Son Heung-min, Hwang Eui-jo (Norwich City), Kim Ji-soo (Brentford), Oh Hyun-kyu, Yang Hyun-joon (Celtic), and the coaching staff, including coach Klinsmann, were seen arriving.

In particular, Son Heung-min was seen getting off the train with his Tottenham teammates Ben Davies and Brennan Johnson. Davies and Johnson are both Welsh internationals who are on international duty with South Korea.

“Hello, Korean soccer fans,” Davies greeted the KFA’s cameras shortly after he and Son got off the train. “I’m glad I came with (my teammates) and didn’t rush,” he said.

The Korean national soccer team has gathered in Cardiff to begin preparations for the match against 토토사이트 Wales. This is a crucial match for Klinsmann, who hasn’t recorded a win in his first four games in charge.

Klinsmann has been criticized for his ‘working from home’ controversy in recent years, and if he fails to produce a meaningful result on the road, the fans will be even colder.

With Europe’s players in fine form as of late, with goals flying in and out of the net, Klinsmann needs to prove he’s up to the task by beating Wales.
