S08 - Slide Tackle


Attack/Defence Awareness Card: Defence Minded

Rim Jung-son is a former centre or right back. He spent his entire career for Moranbong throughout the 1960s and 1970s. He was a member of North Korea national team from 1965 to 1974, participating to the 1966 FIFA World Cup.
Considered one of the main defenders of the North Korea team, Rim Jung-son was focused in his defensive task and never left his own half during active play, doing so only during set pieces. He was pretty careful at defending but his timely response in the tackling was his best asset. He was seen tackling successfully the Soviet wingers to stop them from crossing or Chilean players like Prieto and Landa to stop them from reaching the goal. He wasn't a big guy and not notably fast but he wasn't light either and his decent short sprints helped him reach the ball in time for making a tackle. His mentality and will to fight were also strong points. Sporadically in charge of taking free kicks, he delivered a powerful shot that finished over the crossbar against Soviet Union and a pinpoint cross against Chile that was cleared but followed by Pak Sung-jin's goal. Against USSR, in one of the rare occasions he was seen forward, he send a dangerous right-footed cross in the box with an acrobatic volley. Used as centre back in the first two World Cup group matches, he was instead deployed as right back against Italy and Portugal.
