On the 9th, coaches were also summoned along with the national team players. However, Head Coach Herzog was nowhere to be seen. And later it became known that he was unable to respond to the summons because his mother’s condition suddenly worsened. Jürgen Klinsmann hoped that all members would get better.
Fortunately, his mother showed signs of recovery under the care of Head Coach Herzog and his family.

According to a message from a KFA official during training on the 11th, they were expected to arrive in Korea on the 13th (Friday) or 14th (Saturday). However, Head Coach Herzog moved faster due to a sense of duty, and entered the country on the 12th. 스포츠토토
