‘Where do you send the ball?’ Even Kim Min-jae, who collapsed himself, even excused himself for an extra run

Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) is not able to show his skills as much as the evaluation when he wears only the national team uniform.

The Korean national soccer team, 먹튀검증led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, played a warm-up game against Uruguay at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8:00 pm on the 28th and lost 1-2.

Director Klinsman’s ‘first win’ failed. Previously, on the 24th, Korea faced Colombia in Ulsan and finished with a 2-2 draw.

There was interest in whether Kim Min-jae, who is called the ‘iron pillar’ in his team Napoli and shows good defense every day, will play continuity in the national team game. 

He showed somewhat less than expected performance for his national team. the past tells 

In the Qatar World Cup Group H match against Ghana (Korea lost 2-3), which ended in December last year, Korea, which was guarded by Kim Min-jae, allowed three goals. At that time, it was called the ‘watershed of the round of 16’, and Korea faced off against each other with the goal of ‘a scoreless victory’, but unexpectedly suffered a massive defeat.

As a result, the defeat in the game against Ghana served as motivation. With Kim Min-jae’s injury left, Korea beat Portugal 2-1 in the last match of the group stage and advanced to the round of 16. They were blocked by Brazil, a world powerhouse, and were unable to advance to the quarterfinals. 

In the match against Brazil, Korea lost 1-4. There were not many people who calmly predicted Korea’s victory, but few would have predicted the picture of allowing 4 goals in the first half alone.

The left and right fullback positions change depending on the game. Left fullback owner Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) had some unexpected departures due to injury, and players are still competing for the right fullback position. 

In the central defensive line, along with Kim Young-kwon (Ulsan Hyundai), Kim Min-jae is playing as the starting pitcher. It is said that the responsibility of these two players is more than expected because they have been playing a game recently. In particular, Kim Min-jae’s stock price was rising in the midst of the European stage, so it felt more unfamiliar to see him break through only when the national team came

This day was no exception. Kim Min-jae made a mistake that he shouldn’t have made, even though it was futile. He was near the center line in the 8th minute of the first half, and when Uruguayan midfielder Facundo Torres pressed and ran, he stopped giving the ball to the left and sent the ball out of the touchline. He himself made a gesture that said he was a bit futile or absurd.

Kim Min-jae also provided an excuse for an additional run. In the 6th minute of the second half, Hwang In-beom’s equalizer made the score 1-1, and Kim Min-jae stepped on an opponent from just outside the Korean side’s box and gave Uruguay a free kick. Joaquin Piquerez as the kicker took a shot and Cho Hyun-woo succeeded in the first save, but Matthias Vesino scored the ball that bounced off. 

It is very regrettable that Kim Min-jae’s complacent defense, which led to a foul in a dangerous area, ‘stepped on the opponent’s foot’.
