Reporter Lee Hyung-joo = Son Heung-min was unable to train with his teammates.
The men’s national soccer team, coached by Jürgen Klinsmann (59), will face Tunisia at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on Nov. 13. On the 17th, they will play Vietnam at Suwon World Cup Stadium. On the 9th, Klinsmann convened the players at the National Training Center (NFC) in Paju.
Two days before the match, the team trained on the 11th.
On this day, captain Son Heung-min did not train with the team. Son underwent surgery for an inguinal (groin) hernia before the start of the season. This is a condition in which organs in the abdominal cavity protrude into the tissue around the groin, causing extreme pain.
Since his surgery, Son has been back to his old self and is on fire as the second-leading scorer in the English Premier League (EPL). But he’s still being managed for injury risk at his club, and the same goes for the national team.
On the 9th, the day of the call-up, and the 10th, which was an open training session, Heung-min worked on his conditioning with cycling drills. On the 11th, he only trained indoors.
Luckily, it’s not an injury. On the 11th, an association official said, “There is no pain or injury. He runs and has no problem with this. However, we will know whether he will be able to participate on the 13th after the medical staff finally checks him tomorrow.”온라인바카라
Meanwhile, other players were seen practicing the infernal shuttle runs that were introduced under Gus Hiddink. It involves running a certain distance continuously and increasing the speed. Klinsmann is reported to have taken note of the data and plans to use it more in the future.
