“No, I’m staying at Leverkusen,” he says of Liverpool-Munich deal

Xabi Alonso, the Bayern Munich and Liverpool manager who has been the subject of speculation, has announced that he is staying put.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the match against Hoffenheim on Monday, Alonso said: “It’s been a season where there has been a lot of speculation about my future. We have played a lot of games so far. We have been very busy and focused. I used the A-match period to think a little bit about my future and last week I had a very good conversation with Simon Rolfes (Sporting Director) and Fernando Caro (CEO). I told them that I have decided to stay,” he explained.

“I’m not going to comment on Liverpool or Munich. They are big clubs and I have strong ties with them, but I am where I want to be. Now is not the time to decide my future. I want to develop at Leverkusen. There was a lot of speculation. After careful consideration, I decided that this is the right place for me. It’s not over yet and there is still a lot of work to do,” he added.

Earlier, Germany’s Bild reported, “Alonso will soon hold a pre-match press conference ahead of the match against Hoffenheim. He will probably reveal his decision to stay at Leverkusen for the upcoming season,” Bild reported.

Germany’s Sky Sports also reported that “Alonso has decided to stay at Leverkusen and has already made it known that he will not be going to Munich next season. Alonso will explain his decision at today’s pre-match press conference.”

Recently, we’ve seen a number of big names part ways with their organizations at the end of the season. It started with Liverpool. Jürgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool’s golden era, announced his sudden resignation in January. He announced that he needed a break and will leave Anfield at the end of this season.

The club where Kim Min-jae plays, Munich, is also parting ways with Thomas Tuchel. The team has suffered three consecutive defeats in official matches, starting with the last one against Leverkusen, and has been heavily criticized. They have already been eliminated from the DFB Pokal Cup and are in second place in the Bundesliga, 10 points behind Leverkusen, with the league title out of reach. The team’s Champions League round of 16 first leg loss to Lazio further inflamed public opinion. Munich eventually terminated Tuchel’s contract early at the end of the season.

Alonso was the next manager to be touted by both clubs. A world-class midfielder as a player, Alonso first took charge of Leverkusen in October of last season and led the club to the UEFA Europa League (UEL). This season, they have not lost a single official match since the start of the season, finishing first in the table with 70 points, ahead of Munich. Add to that a DFB Pokal Cup quarterfinal appearance and a Europa League quarterfinal appearance, and you have one of Europe’s biggest ‘breakout’ seasons.

Alonso’s contract runs until 2025. With Alonso himself announcing his stay, it seems likely that he will continue his journey with Leverkusen.



“Vision? Lee Kang-in, finesse? Lee Kang-in”… Even at PSG, Lee Kang-in is unbeatable

Even at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), where his passing and vision are among the best in the world, Lee Kang-in, 23, is one of the first to recognize his teammates.

Lee has been recognized by his peers. Online sportsbook Paris Ones Sports offered an interesting selection of Paris Saint-Germain players on Monday (July 29). Ousmane Dembele, Vitinha, Bradley Barcola, and Nordy Moukiele were among the players who participated, with the media asking them to choose their teammates in 10 categories: right foot, left foot, header, strength, vision, pace, power, finesse, penalty, and technique.

Lee was not left out. Bittinha and Baccola recognized his strengths. Vittinha chose him for having the best vision, while Baccola gave him a thumbs-up for his accuracy.

It’s always been one of Lee’s strongest attributes. Since his youth, Lee has been praised for his precise left-footed passes and clairvoyant gaze across the pitch. From Valencia to Mallorca and now to Paris Saint-Germain, the midfielder has shown off his excellent ball management, vision, and passing ability.

Today, he leads the Paris Saint-Germain attack. His precise left-footed kicks, his ability to dribble past one defender, and his commitment to the defense have all earned him a passing grade from Luis Enrique. He knows how to use him. “I knew him since he played for Spain,” Enrique said last November. He’s small, but he can play anywhere. His defensive contribution is great and he scores goals. He’s perfect.”

Where Lee’s strengths really come to the fore is when he helps Kylian Mbappe score. Lee has shared a goal with Mbappe twice this season, and in both instances, his vision and accurate left foot were on full display. When he first set up Mbappe’s goal in Brest in October last year, he showed the vision and passing ability to anticipate movement on the halfway line and drop the ball into space behind the opposition.

He also shone in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg against Real Sociedad earlier this month. Once again, Lee received the ball in the center of the box and wasted no time after chest-trapping to deliver a left-footed roving pass. Lee reacted to Kylian Mbappe’s penetration with a pinpoint pass.

The French locals are very positive about Lee’s passes. At the end of the Sociedad game, PSG Culture praised Lee for “brilliantly assisting Mbappe’s second goal”. Le Parisien highlighted the pass that created the opportunity, saying that “Mbappe could have easily scored after a perfect pass from Lee.”

Lee will now prepare for a rivalry match. Paris Saint-Germain will travel to Marseille on January 1st. The two teams 토토사이트 will face off in the top division of the French Ligue 1. It”s known as “Le Clasique” and it”s a game with a lot of tension and rough play. This is the kind of game where you’d expect Lee to start. The French ’90min’ program has Lee in the center of the pitch against Marseille.

Lee Kang-in traveled long distances during the A-match, but it was a time that took a toll on his mind. With the ping-pong gate that erupted during the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar still garnering attention, Lee paid off his debt in the fourth match of the FIFA Confederations Cup North America 2026 Asian Zone 2 qualifying campaign against Thailand.

On the day, Lee directly assisted on Son Heung-min’s goal in the ninth minute of the second half. Lee was the key to South Korea’s offense throughout the match. Lee was always the one to set up the South Korean offense, and he did so with a brilliant left-footed pass. When he saw Son Heung-min in a good position, he played an exquisite penetrating pass to set up the goal. The two hugged and shared the goal celebration, putting to rest any rumors of a feud.

After finishing his national team schedule with a smile on his face, Lee was out of the rigid environment. He had ample opportunity to showcase his lighter frame of mind and body at Paris Saint-Germain. His teammates have praised his vision and passing, and he has their trust, so he will go into Marseille with confidence.



“How did your brother withstand criticism from the English media, abuse from English fans?”

Do you remember Diego Costa?

He was once considered one of the best strikers in the world. He was born in Brazil and played for the Brazilian national team before moving to the Spanish national team. Despite his immense talent, he”s also a very controversial player. 

This happened during his time at Chelsea in the English Premier League (EPL). Costa joined Chelsea in 2014 from Atletico Madrid in Spain. The transfer fee was £32 million ($543 million). He played there until 2017. Costa had a tremendous career at Chelsea. In two of his three seasons, he exploded for 20 league goals. Chelsea won two EPL titles and one League Cup.  

Costa’s first year in the UK has begun. It wasn’t without its challenges. Costa was criticized by many British media outlets. England is known for its intensity of criticism. He hadn”t even played a single game yet and was already being criticized. The reason: Costa is not the right striker for the EPL. There were predictions that he wouldn”t succeed in the EPL, and if he had a bad game, he would be criticized by the English media. 

What about the English fans? They are some of the most passionate fans in the world. Some of the more extreme fans are not afraid to use profanity and violence. It’s not easy to deal with the abuse and criticism, especially from rival fans. It was a different atmosphere in Spain.  

The criticism from the English media, the abuse from the English fans. Costa was very calm in this hostile environment. This was witnessed by Alexandre Pato. Pato is one year younger than Costa. He played for Chelsea on loan for a short time in 2016. He was watching Costa from the sidelines and saw how well he was handling the criticism from the English media and the English fans. 

So Pato asked Costa how he could be so calm. How can you be so calm, how can you hold it together 카지노 so well?” Costa answered, and the way he did it was shocking. Pato remembered the moment vividly.

“When I arrived at Chelsea, Costa was there,” Pato told local media. The media in England were bashing Costa, rival fans were swearing at him, but Costa was always calm, so peaceful. So I asked him, ‘How do you cope with this pressure? How do you hold it together?’ He had a unique approach,” he recalls. 

Costa’s answer was simple and straightforward. ”It’s simple,” he said. 



Lim Jong-chan hits first career walk-off hit to lead Hanwha to victory

“I think it felt good and exciting, and my goal is to do my best at every at-bat without stressing about the outcome.”

So said Lim Jong-chan, who hit his first career walk-off hit and led the Hanwha Eagles to their fifth straight win.

Hanwha, led by Choi Won-ho, defeated Lee Kang-cheol’s KT Wiz 3-2 in the home opener of the 2024 KBO Baseball League at Hanwha Life Eagles Park in Daejeon on Monday. The win was the fifth in a row for the Pajuk, who improved to 5-1 on the season.

It was a standout performance from Lim Jong-chan, who started at sixth base and center field, as he came through in clutch fashion at crucial moments to secure the win for Hanwha.

After a double in the first inning, a grounder to shortstop in the fourth inning, and a strikeout in the seventh inning, Lim’s bat came alive in the ninth inning when the teams were tied 2-2. After a Jonathan Peraza double to left-center, a Chae Eun-sung walk, a Noh Si-hwan double and a strikeout of Ahn Chi-hong, Lim hit a 124-kilometer splitter off right-handed reliever Lee Sang-dong to left-center field for the game-winning hit. It was the end of Han’s five-game winning streak.

When asked after the game, Lim said, “It’s the first time I’ve ever hit (an out) while playing baseball. It feels good and exhilarating,” he said, adding that he was doused with water by his teammates after the game. “I thought it would be cool because I was playing, but it was colder than I thought. I hugged him tightly, but it was a bit nerve-wracking,” he said with a smile.

“In the first inning, the opposing pitcher threw a splitter, and I tried to hit it for a fastball, and it worked,” he said. “I realized that he was using it as his main weapon, so I came up with my own plan. I was confident from the first pitch and it worked out well. I thought it was a good pitch when I hit it, but when I saw the fielder running, I ran and thought it was over,” he said of his game-winning hit.

He hadn’t gotten a hit in his previous at-bat, which could have put more pressure on him. However, Lim said, “Being a hitter is a job where you fail more than you succeed. I didn’t give up because I didn’t hit (earlier). I tried to focus on what I could do with the same mindset as my first at-bat,” he said boldly.

Born in Cheongju, North Korea, Lim Jong-chan is a right-handed hitting outfielder with a lot of potential. He was drafted by Hanwha with the 28th overall pick in the third round of the 2020 KBO Draft and completed his military service in 2022-2023 as a recruit training assistant for the 7th Infantry Division in Gangwon Province. Up until last year, his professional stats were .188 (55 hits in 322 at-bats) with four home runs and 26 RBIs in 114 games.

This year, Lim has been even better. He went 1-for-3 with a home run and one RBI against SSG in Incheon on April 27, and then went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI against SSG the next day. Once again, he swung the bat sharply at crucial moments to help Hanwha secure the win.

He is a “practice bug” to the point where he has a large callus on his right hand.

“I can only say that I’m lucky,” Lim said of his clutch performances, “because my seniors and older brothers did a good job of preparing me for those situations.” He gave credit to his teammates, adding, “All I can do is work harder than I do well. When you work hard, you don’t expect results. I’ve been working on my swing and 스포츠토토 working on things like that because I think it will have a positive effect on me, and I’m happy that it’s paying off.”

“My goal is to do the best I can with what I have,” he concludes, adding, “My goal is not to get injured and not to stress too much about the outcome, but to do the best I can with each at-bat, each pitch.”

The game also drew a lot of attention for the appearance of Ryu Hyun-jin, who went 98-52 with one save and a 2.80 ERA in 190 games (1269 innings) in the KBO from 2006 to 2012, and 78-48 with one save and a 3.27 ERA in 186 games (1055.1 innings) in the Major League Baseball (MLB) from 2013 to last year with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays. It had been 4,194 days since Ryu pitched in a regular season home game against Daejeon on October 4, 2012, against the Nexen Heroes (now Kiwoom).

After struggling against the LG Twins in the opening game at Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul on March 23, giving up two runs on six hits, three walks, and five strikeouts in 3.2 innings, Ryu dominated the KT lineup. His final line was six innings, eight hits, nine strikeouts, and two runs. He threw 89 pitches, with his fastball reaching 147 mph.

However, Ryu’s 99th career KBO win will have to wait until next time, as the bats came alive late in the game.

“I wasn’t the winning pitcher, but I’m glad the team won. I’m glad we’re on a winning streak,” he said. “I think I pitched well without being overpowered. I think I did what I thought I was going to do except for one pitch,” he said. Ryu’s next start in the Hanwha rotation will be on April 4 against the Lotte Giants in Daejeon.

Hitting ‘160’ for the Fewest Games Ever, Aces were rather dull

SSG Landers’ Kim Kwang-hyun has reached 160 career wins in the KBO.

Kim Kwang-hyun started against SSG Landers in the 2024 KBO League at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu, South Korea, on April 29, allowing one run on six hits and four walks while striking out seven in six innings. He pitched a quality start (six innings of three earned runs or less) to lead his team to victory. Behind ace Kim Kwang-hyun’s strong pitching performance, SSG defeated Samsung 6-4.

On this day, Kim reached the 160-win milestone in his KBO career. This is the fewest games (358) in history. The previous record was set on June 10, 2008, by Jung Min-chul of Daegu Samsung Electronics (373 games). Kim Kwang-hyun is now fourth on the all-time individual wins list. In third place is Jung Min-cheol with 161 wins.

After the match, Kim Kwang-hyun said, “I didn’t think about the 160 points. I was worried because the team atmosphere was not good. However, the batters scored runs from the beginning of the game, so I was able to pitch comfortably,” he said after the victory.

The record of 160 wins in a minimum number of matches doesn’t mean much to him. It’s just one game toward his goal of 200 wins. “My goal is 200 wins,” Kim said. Until then, I think I have to keep looking up and keep playing baseball. It’s just a process right now. It’s still too early to get excited. I won’t put any meaning on it other than ending the losing streak,” he said bluntly.

Kim kept the Samsung bats in check with a masterful slider. In the first inning, he used his fastball to break the opponent’s momentum, and later threw more changeups. “At the beginning of the game, I thought I had to keep the runs to a minimum,” Kim said. In the first inning, I threw a little harder to set the tone. I got three strikeouts to set the tone, and it was even better today because my slider worked well,” said Kim.

He was positive about the automatic pitch-ball judgment system (ABS). “I heard that the strike zone is slightly different in 메이저사이트 each stadium, so I focused on understanding the strike zone at the beginning of the game. The strike zone might be different from SSG Landers Field in Incheon. But with ABS, both teams are getting fair calls. You have to adapt,” he said.

The junior pitchers gave Kim a water balloon to celebrate his 160th win. “The juniors must have been upset during the three-game losing streak, so I’m grateful to them for celebrating my 160th win. I hope my juniors can become an ace and a must-win team before I retire. I hope they improve a lot. That’s my personal hope,” he said, encouraging the younger players.

The commander also gave a thumbs-up to Kim Kwang-hyun. “Kim Kwang-hyun’s strong pitching was the driving force behind the victory. Even in the midst of the team’s losing streak, he pitched like Kim Kwang-hyun, like an ace. Congratulations to him on his 160th win.”

Alberta Ranks Second in National Lottery Luck, Finds Study

Based on new lottery research the Province of Alberta is the second luckiest region in Canada, in terms of lottery winnings. Recently, online gambling expert Datslots issued a study ranking the 10 regions of the country based on lottery windfalls in the last 12 months. It was discovered that Nunavut is the one with the most luck, followed by Alberta and Manitoba.

The recent study by Datslots applied to three national draws – Lotto Max, Lotto 6/49, and Daily Grand, which are probably the most popular lottery offerings across the country. It was based on the recorded winnings of CA$10,000 or more in the last 12 months, and prizes were combined and divided per 1,000 residents to reveal the luckiest region.

Findings from the Study

А spokesperson for the analyst firm noted that interestingly enough, Canada’s three most populous regions are not in the three luckiest areas for lottery players. Meanwhile, two of the smallest regions also performed poorly in the research, with mid-size provinces such as Alberta and Manitoba scoring some of the best luck among others.

Nunavut which turned out to be the luckiest region and has a population of 40,586 had an average winnings of CA$172,473 per 1,000 residents. The region claimed the top spot after one of its locals seized a Daily Grand jackpot of CA$7 million in October 2022. Alberta in second has a population of 4,601,314 and had an average winnings of CA$310,982,575 in the last 12 months.

Over the last 12 months, Alberta recorded a total of over CA$310 million in lottery winnings, with a jackpot in Lotto Max worth CA$70,000,000 taken home by a Calgary resident in October 2022. The windfall went to business owner Mitchel Dyck who is a regular lottery player, and his winning is the largest lottery one recorded in the province.

Manitoba with a population of 1,420,228 was in third with average winnings of CA$53,959 per 1,000 locals. In the last 12 months, the largest jackpot worth CA$60 million in Lotto Max was won by a Winnipeg resident. The Atlantic Province was in fourth place with an average winning of CA$45,688 per 1,000 residents, with the largest jackpot being CA$64 million from Lotto 6/49.

Meanwhile, Ontario which had the largest winnings in the past year of CA$646,485,815 and a population of 15,262,660 was in fifth with an average score of CA$42,357 per 10,000 people. Two Ontarians each claimed a jackpot prize of CA$60 million in November 2022. British Columbia and its population were in sixth with average winnings per 1,000 of CA$38,547.

The Rest of the Rankings

Quebec with 8,751,352 and Yukon with 43,964 people were in seventh and eighth place with average windfalls of CA$24,276 and CA$22,746, respectively. Saskatchewan came in ninth with an average score of CA$17,360 per 1,000 people. Meanwhile, the Northwest Territories were the unluckiest region with an average lottery winning of CA$11,438 per 1,000 individuals.

CFL Athletes Rely on Common Sense to Avoid Sports Betting Scandals

The Canadian Football League is putting tons of effort and technology into ensuring the integrity of games, but when it comes to coaches and players, following gambling rules can be as easy as using common sense. This week, Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Mike O’Shea noted that players and coaches are told not to bet on the league and those are pretty simple rules to follow.

Mr. O’Shea’s interview was from the media day for the 110th edition of the Grey Cup which takes place on Sunday, November 19, 2023, in Hamilton, Ontario. Estimations find that a single game of the CFL draws plenty of interest and can attract more than CA$6M in wagering, meaning that the league’s championship final could interest even more bettors.

It is Common Sense, Claim Players and Coaches

The upcoming Grey Cup arrives on the back of a recent NFL-related gambling scandal and the CFL is trying to ensure that something similar will not happen in Canada. In an interview, Blue Bombers left tackle Stanley Bryant, said that at the end of the day, it was common sense not to bet on the CFL games while being a player or a coach, and that it was quite obvious.

Meanwhile, Montreal Alouettes head coach Jason Maas noted that following sports-betting-related guidelines for players was not his focus, but said that the matter is quite black-and-white. He remarked that if a player wants to play in the league, then they should not bet on its games. Mr. Alouettes said that they are all adults in the league, and they should all follow the rules.

However, this may not be this obvious to everyone, as sports betting has risen quite a bit in popularity and teams now even cooperate with sportsbooks and have them on their jerseys. That is why the league and its teams are putting more time into ensuring players are aware of the rules around wagering, gambling, and the CFL’s match-manipulation provision.

As stated, CFL has already brought in as partners some popular betting brands, including FanDuel. This June, the operator and the league announced their agreement, making the sportsbook an official bookmaker partner to the league. The collaboration allowed the operator to enhance enhancing CFL experience by launching a variety of in-game player props and more.

But FanDuel is not the only gambling brand to team up with the league. In September 2023, CFL signed another important strategic partnership with 888, making it its latest official authorized gaming operator and advertising partner in Ontario. Via the deal, the two launched 888 Rivalry Games, which are marquee matchups with some of the league’s biggest games.

League Keeps a Close Tab for Potential Betting Violations
CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie shared that the league’s partners monitor for suspicious betting activity, and even resort to algorithms to detect betting patterns. He claims the system is working well, and experts also agree. However, he noted that the league must be on alert for game manipulation or betting from players as it would be a major issue.

OLG Celebrates the Holidays with Exclusive Lottery Tickets

For this year’s winter festivities, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has in store a full suite of holiday-themed products. The Crown agency also announced the launch of its Merry Millions. It comes with a total of 408 prizes from CA$1,000 to CA$1 million and due to its raffle-themed structure, all prizes are guaranteed to be claimed.

Similar to its other lottery products, proceeds from Merry Millions will be reinvested in Ontario to help key priorities such as healthcare, treatment and prevention of problem gambling and support for amateur athletes. Last year alone, OLG provided over CA$2.5 billion to the province, with the sale of lottery tickets amounting to nearly half of that number.

Merry Millions Tickets are Now in Stores

A limited number of Merry Millions tickets are now in circulation across its lottery retailers in the province. Tickets are available from now until January 9, 2024, and cost CA$20. Those who get their tickets prior to December 12, 2023, will be able to participate in a CA$50,000 Early Bird draw. There are three Early Bird prizes, three Main draws of CA$1M and 402 other cash prizes.

During the holiday season, local players will be also able to buy the Holiday Instant CA$20 Gift Pack, each costing CA$20. Each pack has a guaranteed minimum win of CA$5, while also touting six top prizes of CA$100,000 and comes with five tickets in each pack. It includes fan favourites such as Bingo Double and Crossword Tripler. It is available since November 6, 2023.

For the fans of the bigger stakes, OLG also renewed CA$100 Ultimate, which as the name suggests comes with a price of CA$100. It offers 1 in 25,000 chances of winning the top prize. Also, 40 CA$ 1 million windfalls will be drawn on January 4, 2024. Last but not least, there are also gift cards varying between CA$5 and CA$100, making it a perfect gift for a holiday greeting card.

Since parents often put lottery tickets in children’s Christmas socks, OLG also used the press to remind adults in Ontario that all lottery products, including Instants, are a form of gambling activity, making them inappropriate for children and minors. This is in connection to exposing youth to gambling at an early stage, which could have an impact on them in the future.

OLG Looks Back on Eventful 2022-23

Several weeks ago, OLG also published its annual report for the fiscal 2022-2023. The Crown agency disclosed another record-setting FY in which it delivered CA$2.5 billion in net proceeds to the province. It also disclosed a substantial 31% increase in online gambling earnings to CA$669 million. Meanwhile, monthly player accounts spiked by 22% from the previous FY.

Another highlight from the 2022-23 FY for the gambling regulator of Ontario was the debut of retail sports betting at numerous casinos throughout the province. Properties of Great Canadian Entertainment were among the first to launch the new product via Great Canadian Sportsbooks in October 2022, allowing bettors to enjoy drinks and food while watching and betting on games.

Kim Moon-hwan’s Lost One Year Under Clinsman that he really wants to recover against Thailand

There is a player who was a built-in member of the Korean national soccer team and suddenly disappeared in the past year. It is right back Kim Moon-hwan. Can Kim Moon-hwan, who was called back after a year, be recognized for his value as a national team again through the match against Thailand?

The Korean national soccer team led by Hwang Sun-hong will face off against the Thai national soccer team in the fourth round of Group C of the second Asian qualifying round for the 2026 FIFA North and Central America World Cup, which is scheduled at 9:30 p.m. on the 26th (Korea time) at the Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok. Korea showed signs of slowing down as it tied 1-1 at home in the third round match against Thailand, which took place at the World Cup Stadium in Seoul on the night of the 21st. Korea must win the upcoming match against Thailand.

While preparing for the upcoming match against Thailand, Hwang selected a large number of players who had not been appointed by former coach Jurgen Klinsmann. Notably, it is noteworthy that players who had been rarely used by the national team during the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar but were shunned after the establishment of Klinsmann’s system rejoined the team. Baek Seung-ho and Kim Moon-hwan are the main players, who stepped on the pitch in the last match against Thailand. However, Kim was not ordered to play in the team.

Kim may be one of the most bizarrely lost players in the history of the Korean national soccer team. During the Qatar World Cup, Kim played full-time in starting all four games that the team played, with the full trust of coach Paulo Bento. In terms of playing time, Kim was the only player who played important roles in the team. However, Kim was not used at all under Klinsmann.

He was called in March last year for the two consecutive games against Colombia and Uruguay, but it was only a “Qatar World Cup member show-up” for Klinsmann, who had no information on Korean players. Kim has not been called since the two consecutive games against Peru and El Salvador in June when Klinsmann picked players. He turned a blind eye to Kim even though it was worth calling him at least once to check him out.

“It would be a lie if I hadn’t thought about why I couldn’t be called,” Kim said in a meeting with “Best Eleven” in Doha, Qatar in October last year. “I don’t know. I just have to wait in my situation.”

When asked if he had received any “homework” from Klinsmann, he said, “I haven’t received any such messages.” At the time, Kim was strongly eager to participate in the 2023 AFC Qatar Asian Cup, but he was frustrated that he was being shunned for some reason. However, Kim was not even a veteran in his 30s. Kim is a 28-year-old player in his prime.

As the period of being shunned became longer, the given situation changed a lot. Seol Young-woo, who used to be a “rookie,” has now grown into a right-back built-in. In fact, Seol Young-woo was in charge of the right touchline in the last home match against Thailand. When Seol Young-woo lost his arm during the game for a while, Kim Moon-hwan was caught preparing in a hurry, but eventually he had to sit back on the bench when Seol Young-woo returned to normal.

The situation in which a junior, who was not even seen on the list when he left the national team, took root in his position is a symbol of how much Kim Moon-hwan has lost over the past year. This is why he expressed that he was a built-in player and suddenly lost his presence.

It is unclear whether Kim Moon-hwan will be selected against Thailand on the 26th. It may be difficult to accept, but it is also a clear reality for Kim Moon-hwan that Seol Young-woo is chosen first as the main right back. And as it is a World Cup qualifying round, it is not very likely that Hwang will change his defense line.

However, Kim will have to prove his presence and qualification as a national team member by pouring everything he has into the pitch if he is ordered to do so. Only then can he regain his lost position.

Did Kim Pan-gon ‘eak the sky Thailand chanting ‘Korea is waking up by copying Malay

The game against Jordan, which suffered a crushing 0-2 defeat in the semifinals, was the most shocking, but the 3-3 draw with Malaysia in the third round of the group stage was also indispensable.

In particular, the pressure on the central midfielder turned out to be a fatal weakness, and there is a person who relentlessly penetrated it. It was Kim Pan-gon, coach of the Malaysian national team. Thailand, which will join the team at the gateway to the third qualifying round for the World Cup, also secured points in away matches to Korea, and plans to secure more points.

The South Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Hwang Sun-hong, will play the fourth round of Group C of the 2026 FIFA North Central America (co-hosted by the United States, Canada and Mexico) against Thailand at 9:30 p.m. on the 26th (Korea Standard Time) at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand.

South Korea and Thailand drew 1-1 in the third Group C match held at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on the 21st. Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) scored the first goal in the 42nd minute of the first half, but the tie was drawn in the 16th minute by allowing Sufanat Mueanta (Buriram United) to score an equalizer.

Korea met Thailand, which is ranked 111th in the FIFA rankings, and struggled under strong pressure from the opponent team. With the build-up situation starting with a short pass from the back, Thailand strongly raised its line from the start of the first half to put pressure on the team.

As if Baek Seung-ho or Hwang In-beom knew the pattern of coming down, accepting, and going up, they actively pressured the players. Eventually, center-back duo Kim Min-jae and Kim Young-kwon tried to move forward on the side, giving the ball back to the side.

As a result, Son scored the first goal in the 42nd minute of the first half in an attack on the side, but gave up the mood to Thailand early in the second half. The center kept locking up strong and continuing the pressure. The center also maintained a certain distance from the side, continuing the pressure. The stance got stronger as Thailand tied the game with a score of no hit.

This was similar to the situation at the 2023 Asian Cup in Qatar. Back then, Korea played almost all matches under the leadership of Park Yong-woo (Al-Ain) and Hwang In-beom. With two players in the midfield, the gap widened dramatically. In the match against Malaysia, Park Yong-woo was excluded from the starting lineup and Hwang In-beom was excluded. However, if the opposing teams put strong pressure on one or two Korean central midfielders, they continued to expose weaknesses that could weaken the team.

Malaysia started to properly target the team. In the third group match against the Republic of Korea, Malaysia induced side attacks through strong central pressure, and when the team cut off the ball in the center, it aimed for Korea’s back space by making a quick counterattack.

Malaysia eventually scored three goals for South Korea, finishing the best tournament despite being eliminated from the group stage. South Korea allowed Malaysia to lose for the first time in 39 years after losing 0-1 in the away match of the first Asian qualifying match for the 1986 World Cup in Mexico in March 1985, and also gave up points.

Thailand, like Malaysia, tends to put pressure on Korea’s weak point, the center. It proved this at the home game against Korea on Monday. It has earned Korea a point for the first time in 26 years. As the team had just teamed up under interim coach Hwang Sun-hong, it was targeted similarly to the Asian Cup in the first match against Thailand.

Furthermore, Thailand is aiming to win against Korea for the first time since the quarterfinals at the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok. More than 48,000 seats have already been sold out, and the Thai Football Association has set up a large screen outside the stadium and is preparing an off-the-shelf cheering match. Korean away fans will also buy tickets to cheer for Korea, but Thailand’s overwhelming atmosphere is expected.

Only when Korea successfully advances through the center and through strong pressure from Thailand both inside and outside the stadium, can Korea secure a point in away matches in Thailand. It is time to hide our weaknesses and increase the capacity of our high-class strikers, which is our strength.
