Munich won 1-0 in a friendly match against Kawasaki Frontale at the National Stadium in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan, on the 29th.
Munich, which lost 1-2 in a friendly match against Manchester City on the 26th, won the second game of the Japan tour.
Above all, the interest of the game was whether Kim Min-jae, wearing a Munich uniform, will play on the 18th local time.
Kim Min-jae was excluded from the roster for the match against Manchester City, but was proudly listed on the starting list against Kawasaki.
In particular, in Kawasaki, “national team senior” Jung Sung-yong played as a goalkeeper, and a “Taegeuk Warriors showdown” was also held.
Kim Min-jae, who worked with French national team defender Benjamin Pavar as a center back, gave off the energy of “Monster” from the beginning of the first half.
Kim Min-jae received applause from fans first for his offense rather than defense.
In the 6th minute of the first half, he participated in the attack from Jojoa Kimihi’s left corner kick and shot up from the front of the goal area to score with a header. The ball easily crossed the crossbar and was his ‘first shot in Munich’.
Kim Min-jae almost scored an attack point in his Munich debut, but was blocked by Jung Sung-ryong, a senior member of the national team.
In the 29th minute of the first half, Kim Min-jae prevented the crisis of losing a point with his unique tight defense.
He allowed a breakthrough while blocking the opponent’s counterattack in the midfield, but immediately ran back and stole the ball with a defense that did not take care of itself near the right side of the penalty area.
Kim Min-jae later blocked Kawasaki’s attack without much risk, and Munich finished the first half without scoring.
Munich replaced nine players at the start of the second half, and Kim Min-jae Swapped for Upamecano and returned to the bench.
Munich, which rarely took advantage of a chance to score, rushed to the opponent’s gate in the 12th minute of the second half after Joseph Stanisic blocked the ball in the midfield, exchanged passes with Ryan Hravenberg, and scored with a left-footed shot in front of the penalty area.
Munich missed an additional goal opportunity and finished with a one-goal victory in the 41st minute of the second half as Ariyon Ibrahimovic’s right-footed shot from the left side of the penalty area hit the left post of Kawasaki.
