Despite his performance, the Korean national soccer team (hereafter referred to as Klinsmann) led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) lost 0-1.

After a close examination, he ruptured ligaments in his ankle and was eventually eliminated from the final list with the World Cup in Qatar just around the corner.
Park Ji-soo, however, immediately stood up again. After completing his military service at Kim Cheon Sangmu, he tried to advance to Europe as a free agent (FA) during the winter transfer market last January, and challenged the Portuguese Primeira Liga stage by joining Portimonense.
During the half-season, Park Ji-soo played in 16 games (14 starting games), going back and forth between starting and replacing, solidifying his position. He definitely drank ‘European water’ and developed his skills noticeably more than before. And he was called by coach Klinsman and put on the Taegeuk mark again after about 7 months.
