Kim Min-jae, who had a lot of pride… Commitment to win against Uruguay without conceding a goal

‘Monster defender’ Kim Min-jae (27, Naples) gritted his teeth. It is a will to recover the pride lost in the game against Colombia with a scoreless victory against Uruguay.

Kim Min-jae attended the official press conference held at the auditorium of the Paju National Football Team Training Center (NFC) on the 27th and said, “In the match against Colombia, I lost my concentration in the second half and gave up the initiative after quickly conceding a goal.” Then I think we can win.”

Previously, Kim Min-jae started full-time in the evaluation match against Colombia held at Munsu Soccer Stadium in Ulsan on the 24th, but was unable to prevent the team from scoring two runs. It was expected that the defense, centered on Kim Min-jae, would stand firm even when coach Jurgen Klinsmann declared ‘attack football’, but they bowed their heads after conceding two goals in the first two minutes of the second half.

Kim Min-jae’s painful mistake was also great. In the 2nd minute of the second half, the first goal was lost in a contest for the ball on the side of the penalty box. The ball, which Kim Min-jae failed to block, eventually headed for the goal, leading to a chase goal by Hames Rodriguez (Olympiacos).

Even in the scene where the equalizer was conceded two minutes later, Jorge Carrascal (CSKA Moscow)’s shot was not blocked due to poor positioning. Kim Min-jae twisted his body at the moment of the opponent’s shot and tried to block it, but the shot passed by his foot and led to a goal. 안전놀이터

Both conceded goals followed a similar pattern in which a player rushing to the goal connected a side cross with a shot. There was some disappointment in the defense organization and communication, but Kim Min-jae, who had to lead the defense, had no choice but to bow his head.

Soccer statistics website Sofascore gave Kim Min-jae a rating of 6.4 against Colombia. This was the lowest rating among field players who participated as a starter that day. For Kim Min-jae, who had to swallow all the regrets in the two conceded scenes, it was a game that would literally crumple his pride.
