Has the public sentiment among soccer fans toward coach Jurgen Klinsmann changed slightly? He had recently been booed by fans, but this time he received quiet applause.

Before the game, the starting roster and bench members of both teams were called one by one. The one who drew the biggest response from fans was by far the ‘captain’ Son Heung-min. Initially, his participation was uncertain due to injury, but he was proudly named to the starting list that day. When Son Heung-min’s name was called on the electronic display, the fans greeted him with loud cheers. In addition, Lee Kang-in, Seol Young-woo, and Hwang Hee-chan also received much cheers.
The excitement in the stands cooled somewhat when the head coach Klinsmann’s face was reflected. After taking charge of the national team last March, Coach Klinsmann became controversial when he publicly stated that he had “no intention of changing his working methods” despite the poor performance and the frequent controversy over outings. In the match against Tunisia on the 13th, Korea won 4-0, and the only member of the national team to be booed was Coach Klinsmann.
On this day, the stands at Suwon World Cup Stadium were quiet. There were neither boos nor cheers for Coach Klinsmann. Instead, only a little applause was heard. The atmosphere was clearly different from when Jo Kyu-sung and Son Heung-min were called just before. Attention is focused on whether Coach Klinsmann, who has escaped the boos, can turn his silence into cheers.
