The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59), will travel to Newcastle, England on a private plane on the 11th (Korean time) to prepare for the decisive match against Saudi Arabia to be held on the 13th.
Klinsmann will play the second game of the two-game international match in September against Saudi Arabia at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th at Newcastle’s St. James Park. In the first match against Wales held on the 8th, it was a 0-0 draw.스포츠토토
After finishing the Wales game, Klinsmann, who unpacked in London’s Brentford and continued training, will travel to Newcastle on a private plane provided by Saudi Arabia on the 11th.
Initially, Korea was planning a friendly match against Mexico and had set London as its next training ground, but the route was messed up when Mexico canceled the friendly match.
Saudi Arabia, the partner that had been difficult to find again, decided not only to provide Korea with a private jet, but also to support all expenses, including the cost of staying in London. St. James Park, where this match will be held, is also the home stadium of Newcastle United (England), managed by the Saudi Sovereign Wealth Fund (PIF) consortium.
Korea, which has gone 5 consecutive games without a win (3 draws and 2 losses) since Coach Klinsmann took office, will attempt its first win against Saudi Arabia. Public sentiment is not good due to the controversy over Coach Klinsmann’s ‘working from home’, so results are necessary for a rebound.
Saudi Arabia is also not in a good mood. Saudi Arabia started off enthusiastically with manager Roberto Mancini at the helm, but lost 1-3 to Costa Rica in his first game in charge.
