Kim Eun-Joong heads into the Gambia with a rotation in place.
Kim Eun-jung’s U-20 national team will take on Gambia at the Mendoza Stadium in Mendoza, Argentina, at 6 a.m. on Monday (June 29) in their third Group F match of the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023.
With starting goalkeeper Kim Jun-hong missing the match due to accumulated cautions and starting center back Choi Seok-hyun being sent off, South Korea will go into the match with a partially rotated Best 11.
Up front, striker Lee Young-joon will lead the charge, while two wingers in Kang Sung-jin and Lee Ji-han will form the center of the attack. Lee Seung-won, Park Hyun-bin, and Lee Chan-wook make up the midfield, while Kim Ji-soo and Hwang In-taek guard the central defense. Cho Young-kwang and Choi Ye-hoon are the sidebacks. Moon Hyun-ho is the starting goalkeeper.
South Korea sits in second place with four points from its first two matches with a 1-1 draw. Leaders The Gambia have six points after two straight wins.
South Korea’s place in the round of 16 is already assured. Even if they fall to third place in the group, they will still qualify for the next round regardless of the outcome of their remaining matches, as they already have four points.메이저사이트
The key is the final standings. A minimum of a draw will keep South Korea in second place in the group. If they finish first, they will face Uruguay in the round of 16. If they finish second, they will face Ecuador. If they fall to third place, they will face Brazil. Brazil is always a strong team, even at the age group level, so the pressure is on. As if conscious of this, coach Kim Eun-joong hasn’t let his guard down completely.
