# Klinsmann, After a Poor Fight, Draws Against ‘Weaker’ Malaysia... I Also Missed Out on First Place in the Group # The Korean national soccer team ended up in a draw against the 'weaker' Malaysia after playing below expectations and advanced to the round of 16 in second place in the group. The Korean national soccer team, led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann, drew 3-3 in the third and final match of Group E of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup against Malaysia held at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Qatar on the 25th. The world rankings of Korea and Malaysia are 23rd and 130th, respectively. **[파워볼사이트](https://www.powerballsite.com)** Korea scored first in the 21st minute of the first half through Lee Kang-in's corner kick followed by Jung Woo-young's header. However, they lost consecutive goals in the early part of the second half. In the 38th minute of the second half, Lee Kang-in's free kick brought the game back to square one. The ball that hit [Lee Kang-in](https://medium.com/@cristellecruz/asian-cup-klinsmann-and-mancini-training-da23212f8f84)'s left foot hit the goalkeeper's hand and crossed the goal line. Then, in the 49th minute of the second half, Son Heung-min (Tottenham) scored a penalty kick to secure victory, but Romel Morales conceded a goal in the 60th minute of the second half, resulting in a 3-3 draw. Coach Klinsmann failed to win either the actual number or the first place in the group on this day. It was expected that a rotation would be introduced to manage players with warnings and allocate physical strength, but the width was not meaningful. Son Heung-min, Lee Kang-in, [Kim Min-jae](https://www.stylevore.com/professional-billiards-pba-participates-in-spox/), and Hwang In-beom all played as starters. Even the much-vaunted ‘No. 1 spot in the group’ was missed. In the second half, it seemed like Lee Kang-in and [Son Heung-min](https://hackernoon.com/preview/IyGyVVj24NN1QUtFat2P) were on the cusp of victory, but they revealed their weaknesses by allowing an equalizer in extra time. After winning 3-1 against Bahrain in the first game and drawing 2-2 with Jordan in the second game, Korea finished the group stage in second place (5 points) with one win and two draws. As a result, Korea will play the round of 16 against the leader of Group F on the 30th. Saudi Arabia is currently ranked first in Group F. If Korea had finished the group stage in first place on this day, it was destined to face Japan, second place in Group D, in the round of 16.
