Italy’s Serie A Napoli ended their 11-game winning streak by losing to Inter Milan. Although the team was defeated, Kim Min-jae played an active role, blocking Inter Milan’s monster striker with the appearance of a top-notch defender. This is reporter Cho Seong-heum.
Even after the Qatar World Cup break, Kim Min-jae’s ‘iron wall defense’ ability was still the same.
Romelo Lukaku, a 191cm tall 103kg striker, was helpless in front of Kim Min-jae.
He blocked the penetrating Lukaku with a rough physical fight and
erased Lukaku’s shooting angle with aggressive movements.

Martinez, who replaced Lukaku in the second half, also failed to cross Min-jae Kim’s wall, proving once again that Min-jae Kim is a ‘top-notch defender’.
According to whoscored.com, a statistics site, Kim Min-jae recorded 101 touches on the ball as well as 3 tackles and 3 kicks, the most in the team.
Kim Min-jae, who added great strength to both defense and build-up, received a rating of 6.8, the highest in the team.
But the hole was Kim Min-jae’s partner, Rahmani.
In the 11th minute of the second half, when Rahmani was careless, Dzeko headed a cross from the left flank to score the opening goal.
Napoli, who failed to pursue due to the continued silence of the attacking team, suffered a 0-1 defeat to Inter Milan.
The defeat also ended Napoli’s 15-game unbeaten record since opening and 11 consecutive league wins, the club’s most.
