Seol Young-woo, first selected for the national team… ‘Injury’ Kim Jin-soo falls from the horse
Kim Jin-soo (Jeonbuk) got off at Klinsmann after injuring his back in the warm-up game against Colombia. Seol Young-woo (Ulsan) takes his place.
The Korea Football Association said, “Kim Jin-soo was called off due to a back injury and the judgment that he needed treatment and rest. Seol Young-woo was selected as a substitute,” he said on the 25th.
Kim Jin-soo, who started in the evaluation match against Colombia held the previous day at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium, lay down on the ground and complained of pain after the 24th minute of the first half. Kim Jin-soo, who left the field on a stretcher after deciding that he could not play any more, expressed pain and regret at the same time by covering his elongated face with his hands.
Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann said in a post-match press conference, “We need to check if there was a special situation with the players, such as Kim Jin-soo’s condition,” but in the end, Kim Jin-soo could not be used in the match against Uruguay.
This is the first time Seol Young-woo, who was selected as a substitute for Kim Jin-soo, has been on the adult national team.메이저놀이터

He won the K-League 1 Young Player Award that year and is in charge of Ulsan’s side defense for the fourth season until this season.
On the 28th at Seoul World Cup Stadium, Klinsmanho will face Uruguay, the second opponent during this A-match (match between national teams). The two teams drew 0-0 after a fierce battle in the first round of Group H of the Qatar World Cup group stage last November.
