Korean national soccer team fullback Kim Jin-soo (31, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors) suffered a back injury and got off at Cleansman.
The Korea Football Association said on the 25th, “Kim Jin-soo was canceled due to a back injury and needed treatment and rest. Seol Young-woo (Ulsan Hyundai) was selected as a replacement.”
Kim Jin-soo suffered a back injury the day before (24th) in a match against Colombia held at Ulsan Munsu Soccer Stadium. He started as a left defender, but in the 24th minute of the first half, he injured his back during a duel with an opponent. Kim Jin-soo fell to the ground and complained of pain. In the end, he was replaced with Lee Ki-je (32, Suwon Samsung).
Coach Jurgen Klinsmann (59) hoped, “I hope (Kim Jin-su) is not a big injury. I hope he will be with us in the next game.”
However, Kim Jin-soo had to leave the national team due to an injury.
In place of Kim Jin-soo, Ulsan Hyundai defender Seol Young-woo was selected as a substitute. This is the first time Seol Young-woo has been selected for the A national team. 토토사이트

In addition, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Ulsan fans who have supported me since the days of Seol Young-woo in Hyundai Middle School.”
