‘Controversial’ Klinsmann needs win against Saudi Arabia to stay afloat

South Korea’s soccer reputation is not the only one in tatters after rivals Japan thrashed Germany ahead of the Asian Cup next January. Jürgen Klinsmann’s men’s national soccer team is facing a desperate need to get its first win in its sixth A match against Saudi Arabia, which is effectively a “preview of the 카지노사이트 Asian Cup.

Klinsmann’s men will face the Saudis in a friendly at St. James’ Park in Newcastle, England, on Sept. 13 at 1:30 a.m. ET. South Korea is ranked 28th in the FIFA rankings, while Saudi Arabia is 54th, and while the Koreans may seem to have the upper hand, the head-to-head record is 17-4, with seven wins, seven draws and six losses. The Saudis also defeated eventual champions Argentina 2-1 in the group stage of last year’s World Cup in Qatar.

The game against Saudi Arabia is a tune-up for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup next January. The Saudis lost 1-3 to Costa Rica on Aug. 8, but showed their strengths in the midfield by winning possession (60%). Not only are the Saudis in the midst of a five-match winless streak, but newly appointed Italian national team coach Roberto Mancini is also expected to bring his full force to bear against South Korea after a poor debut against Costa Rica.

The pressure is only going to get more intense for Klinsmann. Japan (No. 20) won their third straight A-match with a convincing 4-1 away win over Germany (No. 15) on Oct. 10 and have scored a whopping 16 goals in their last five matches (three wins, one draw, one loss). South Korea, by comparison, are winless in five games (three draws and two losses) and have scored a meager four goals. The tactics used against Wales (0-0 draw) will not be enough to win against Saudi Arabia. Playing a de facto 4-2-4 formation, South Korea failed to dominate the center of the field and were unable to generate much offense. That’s why they only had one shot on target.

They need to take advantage of Son Heung-min (Tottenham), who scored a hat trick while playing up top for his club. In the midfield, the team needs a defensive midfielder who can control the tempo and prepare for counterattacks. Above all, we need to see a clear tactical approach to the attack. Klinsmann’s ‘hard line’ theory will be given a lot of weight if the team fails to meet expectations in Saudi Arabia. He has been criticized for requesting jerseys from opposing players and being suspected of playing in the Legends Match. He should look to his own country as a cautionary tale. Following the World Cup in Qatar, Germany sacked Hanji Flick after losing two consecutive games to Japan in an exhibition match. This is the first time in the 123-year history of German soccer.


Ronaldo offers hotel to Morocco earthquake victims…it’s actually a fake news hilarity

A report that Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo (Alnasr) has opened his luxury hotel for victims of the earthquake in Morocco has been confirmed as fake news.

“Ronaldo’s hotel Pestana CR7 Marrakech, 안전카지노사이트 on the outskirts of Marrakech, Morocco, is serving as a shelter after the earthquake in Morocco,” Spanish sports publication Marca reported on Tuesday. It added that Ronaldo, who owns hotels in several European and Arab countries, is a four-star luxury hotel with an outdoor pool, fitness center, restaurant, and 174 rooms.

However, on November 11, the hotel chain told Israeli media outlet that “we received many requests to accommodate people because the hotel was not affected by the earthquake,” adding that “the number of people coming to the hotel has increased since the earthquake, but it is not accurate to say that the hotel is (voluntarily) accommodating displaced people.” The hotel’s operations manager also said that “the displaced people are staying at the hotel. “It is possible that they are outside the hotel, or that some of them are sitting in the lobby,” the hotel’s operations manager said, adding that the hotel has not been sheltered.

The 6.8-magnitude quake struck 71 kilometers southwest of Marrakech in central Morocco on September 9, and the death toll to date is estimated to be at least 2,000.

Meanwhile, players on the Moroccan national soccer team, which reached the quarterfinals of last year’s World Cup in Qatar, have donated blood to help the victims of the earthquake. In particular, Lee Kang-in’s (Paris Saint-Germain) teammate and Moroccan national team defender Ashraf Hakimi posted a photo of himself donating blood on social media, along with the caption, “Donating blood is a way to save as many lives as possible. We need everyone’s help.”

Morocco was initially scheduled to play Liberia in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Sept. 9, but the match was postponed indefinitely following the quake. The Agadir stadium is about 260 kilometers from the epicenter, so any aftershocks are likely to be limited, but the decision was made in light of the emotional toll on the Moroccan people and the national team.
