Ahn Hyun-beom falls from Klinsmann with shoulder sprain…3-4 weeks to recover

Ahn Hyun-beom (Jeju), who was named to the South Korea national soccer team for the first time in his career, injured his right shoulder in a match against Peru and has been ruled out of the team’s second trial against El Salvador in June.

The Korea Football Association said on Sunday, “Ahn Hyun-beom injured his right shoulder when he fell during the match against Peru the day before. After a medical examination, he was diagnosed with a shoulder joint sprain,” the KFA said.

“Based on the diagnosis that he needs to be stabilized for three to four weeks, we decided to exclude him from the national team roster. There are no substitutions.”

Ahn Hyun-beom, who started and played 85 minutes against Peru the previous day, felt shoulder pain after the game and did not participate in the open training session at the Busan Asiad Stadium this morning.

Ahn, who can play both defense and attack on the right side, was selected by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann to replace right fullback Kim Moon-hwan (Jeonbuk), who injured a muscle in the back of his thigh (hamstring) during the June A match.

Ahn, who has played mostly as a wing-back in a three-back system for his club, has never been part of a national team that has adopted a four-back as its primary defensive strategy.토토사이트

For the first time in his career, Ahn took the field as a member of the national team, but his performance was far from satisfactory.

Just 11 minutes into the match against Peru, he lost the ball under intense pressure from the opposing striker and conceded a goal, ending his A-match debut in disappointment.
