Klinsmann’s men get their first win against Saudi Arabia after five games. While it was disappointing to be held to a single goal after leading the game, fans were comforted by the ‘world class’ performances of Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae.

After being denied by goalkeeper Kim Seung-kyu in the 26th minute, a chance came five minutes later.
Taking advantage of a defensive mistake, Cho Kyu-sung found the back of the net with his head.
Soon after, Son Heung-min’s breakthrough seemed to earn a penalty kick, but the referee’s choice was a corner kick.
In all, 18 shots were fired, but no further goals were scored.
After six attempts, Klinsmann got his first win.
The lack of tactical precision was still criticized, but the performances of Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae were a great consolation for the fans.
Despite playing with his right knee taped up, Son played the role of the perfect ‘playmaker’ with his one-man vision and dazzling individual skills.
He completed 81% of his passes and fired in seven threatening passes, and a fantastic passing play between Kim Min-jae, Son Heung-min, and Lee Jae-sung at the start of the second half left fans in awe, even if it didn’t result in a goal.카지노
Kim Min-jae’s defense was also outstanding as he kept a clean sheet. His physical defense in the final minutes of the game was the definition of ‘fighting spirit’.
Despite the lopsided victory, Klinsmann, who initially stirred up controversy by announcing his intention to stay in Europe longer, has changed his schedule and will return home with the squad tomorrow afternoon.
