Kim Min-jae was once again a key part of the defense.

Kim Min-jae was one of the players who helped South Korea reach the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup. The season before, he helped SSC Napoli win their first title in 33 years.
However, things did not go well for the national team. He suffered a minor injury in March and had a difficult time with a controversial interview. In June, Kim was sent to a training camp and missed the A-match period, but returned for the international trials.
Kim excelled in the backline and contributed to the 1-0 win over Saudi Arabia, following the 0-0 draw against Wales. In addition to his defensive duties, he also played a key role in the offense, providing Son Heung-min with a pass into the back of the net. His presence was certainly a comfort to the national team.
