The last test bench of the Bentu that rises to ‘full’ … Clash with Cameroon on the 27th

[데일리굿뉴스] Reporter Kim Shin-kyu = The Bentuho will take the final mock exam as a full group ahead of the Qatar World Cup, which begins on November 20th.

The Korean men’s soccer team, led by coach Paulo Bento, will play an evaluation match against Cameroon at the Seoul World Cup Stadium on 27 September at 20:00.

This is the last time before the start of the World Cup that elite members, including European players such as Son Heung-min (Tottenham), Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton), Hwang Ui-jo (Olympiacos) and Kim Min-jae (Naples), will work together.

The national team is expected to leave for Qatar after an evaluation match in November, but it is difficult to call up a European team right now.

Therefore, this match against Cameroon is the last chance given to coach Bento, who should form the last member, and to the players who should be included in this match against Cameroon.

Korea’s evaluation match against Costa Rica at Goyang Sports Complex on 23 was a difficult 2-2 draw.

Heung-Min Son and Hee-Chan Hwang, Bentuho’s key strikers, operated by scoring points side-by-side to lead the draw.

Hwang Hee-chan was recently kicked out of the starting competition for his team and had fewer appearances, but in Bentuho he announced he was in good health by scoring two consecutive A games.

Additionally, Son Heung-min, who suffered from slowness early in the season and detonated a hat-trick in the last English Premier League (EPL) match before joining the national team, showed his “solving” side by kicking a free-kick in a trajectory that the opposing goalkeeper was unable to exploit in the Costa Rica match.

However, defensive anxiety, which has been chronically highlighted in Korean football, still held the national team’s ankles.

Even with the return of “monstrous defender” Kim Min-jae, the defensive balance was not right or the stability on the left and right sides was poor.

In particular, Bento, who has not yet decided on the right-back option to be set as integrated, is likely to focus on finding the best defensive combination against Cameroon.

While Jong-gyu Yoon (Seoul), who got the chance first, left a question mark over the defense, Tae-hwan Kim (Ulsan) and Moon-hwan Kim (Jeonbuk) continue the competition.

Bento’s tactical experimentation continues.

Bento, who said “I will try a different way to play” in match A in September, changed the line-up to include Son Heung-min and Hwang Ui-jo as two top players and placing Hwang Hee-chan on the left wing.

Another tactic is expected against Cameroon, and it is interesting to see if Lee Kang-in (Mallorca) will take on the role of “new mover”.

Lee Kang-in, who returned to Serie A after 1 year and 6 months, saw the national team draw on the bench in the previous game.

Cameroon, which is defined as a power of the African tradition, is ranked 38th in the FIFA ranking, lower than Korea (28th), and Korea has the upper hand with 2 wins and 2 draws in the history of the opponents.

Additionally, Cameroon visited Korea with a side in squad 1.5 that did not include striker Eric Maxim Chupomotting (Bayern Munich), midfielder Zambo Anguisa (Napoli) and defender Michael Ngaduungaju (Ghent).

Perhaps due to the absence of some key players, they lost 0-2 in the evaluation match against Uzbekistan (77th) on 23.
