Its First Step to Paris, Which is Different From What was Planned

First Step to Paris, Which is Different From What was Planned

Coach Hwang Seon-hong “Lack of Attack Detail”

Qatari coach Balir said, “I didn’t have enough time,

so I focused on organizational skills and prepared… I did a lot of analysis.”

Coach Hwang Seon-hong of the Olympic soccer team,

who lost to Qatar in the first match of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers,

pledged to bounce back in future games by improving the detail of the attack.

Hwang Seon-hong

Coach Hwang said at a press conference after the first match of Group B of the U-23 Asian Cup preliminary round held at the Changwon Soccer Center on the 6th, “I am sorry to the fans for losing the home game.

“The flow of the game changed a lot because of the first goal conceded,” he said.

“It was a game that lacked offensive detail.” 토토사이트

In preparation for the Paris Olympics, the under-22 soccer team led by coach Hwang

scored one goal in the first and second halves against Qatar on this day.

They gave up their spirit and lost 0-2.

U-23 Asian Cup

Since Qatar is the host country of the U-23 Asian Cup and has already confirmed its advancement to the finals,

this match is considered a friendly match and will not affect the preliminary rankings,

but it marks the start of the challenge to qualify for the Paris Olympics.

The atmosphere calmed down after an unexpected complete defeat in the game.

Coach Hwang said, “In the build-up situation in the first half,

there were backward passes, and the fullback was static,

so I tried to adjust the position.


When there was only one holding midfielder, I had trouble building up,

so I changed it to two and had the fullback participate in the attack.”

“We took the lead in the second half, but there wasn’t much detail on the offensive side,” he said.

He continued, “We have to control the pressure depending on the situation, but that part was also disappointing.

We need a win in the next game, so we will prepare by ordering attacks in various situations.

“I think there needs to be a change away from the monotony of the side,” he diagnosed.

The national team, which took a different first step than planned,

will face Kyrgyzstan on the 9th and Myanmar on the 12th.

Preliminary Round

In this preliminary round, a team must rank first in the group or be among the top four teams

among 11 second-place teams in the group to advance to the U-23 Asian Cup finals held in April-May next year,

the final Asian qualifying round for the Paris Olympics.

Coach Hwang reiterated, “I need to show a good performance at home,

but I am sorry that I wasn’t able to,” and added, “Everything is not over with this game,

we have to move forward, so I will pull myself together and focus on the next game.

I will remain calm and not be swayed by the atmosphere.”

“We have to focus on the next game,” he emphasized.

Baek Jong-beom

Regarding goalkeeper Baek Jong-beom (Seoul),

who made a mistake that became the reason for conceding the second goal,

he said, “I think it was a critical mistake, but anyone can make a mistake.

We must not lose courage and use it as an opportunity to improve,” and “It’s all the coach’s problem.”

“And the players must not lose courage and prepare for the next time.”

Qatar coach Illidiu Balr said, “Our performance today was good.

A game we controlled in both the first and second halves.

It has only been a short time since we took office,

it was a game that allowed us to raise our level.”

Qatar World Cup

Coach Balr, who is from Portugal and served as coach of the Portuguese national team during the 2022 Qatar World Cup,

took charge of the Qatar Olympic team last month and has just begun preparations for the U-23 Asian Cup finals.

Coach Balr said, “I knew that Korea was a strong opponent, so I did my best.

Since there was not enough time to prepare,

I focused on organizational skills and analyzed Korea a lot to make the right tactical choices.”

He added, “Although Qatar won, Korea was a great team.”

“Team,” he said.


‘Stay-at-Home Controversy’ Klinsmann Challenges for his First Win

‘Stay-at-home controversy’ Klinsmann challenges for his first win

Wales on the 8th, Saudi Arabia on the 13th

The first foreign leader to be without approval for 4 games since taking office…

A quick win is needed to turn public opinion around,

dispelling concerns about injuries to Hwang Hee-chan and Cho Kyu-seong…

Hat-trick Son Heung-min joins

Jürgen Klinsmann

The opportunity for Korean national soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann,

who has not won in four games since taking office

to shake off negative public opinion and give domestic fans the joy of a ‘major victory’ is just three days away. 카지노사이트

The Korean national soccer team, led by Coach Klinsmann,

will face Wales at Cardiff City Stadium in Wales, England, at 3:45 a.m. on the 8th, Korean time.

The match against Wales is the first game of the Taegeuk Warriors’ two-game international trip to Europe in September.

The national team will face Saudi Arabia at St. James Park in Newcastle, England, at 1:30 a.m. on the 13th, Korean time.

Soccer Team

It has been 5 years and 6 months since the Korean national soccer team went on a European expedition to Northern Ireland and Poland in March 2018 under coach Shin Tae-yong.

Of course, the reason this game is attracting attention is not only because of the rare European trip.

The two consecutive international matches in September,

including the match against Wales and the match against Saudi Arabia, are contextually intertwined with the ‘head coach issue.’

The head coach of a team would naturally want to win, but Coach Klinsmann in particular needs a good win against Wales for ‘many reasons’ beyond general theory.

Coach Klinsmann is the first foreign coach of the Korean national soccer team to fail to win four games (2 draws, 2 losses) since taking office.

In March

They drew 2-2 with Colombia and lost 1-2 to Uruguay.

In June, they lost 0-1 to Peru and drew 1-1 with El Salvador.

Despite being viewed with suspicion due to his failure to prove his leadership through results, Coach Klinsmann even brought on the ‘telecommuting controversy’.

Contrary to his statement at the time of his appointment that he would reside in the country,

some even criticized whether he was taking the position of national team coach lightly by spending most of his time overseas.

Director Klinsmann explained to the media that he works hard through ‘remote work’ and that he only has work to do while abroad.

Side Jobs

However, since the activities that are confirmed in real time are closer to ‘side jobs’ such as appearances on overseas broadcasts,

the glare from fans becomes increasingly harsh.

To quell negative public opinion, the best way to do so is to beat Wales.

It is best for Coach Klinsmann to have a picture that proves

through official matches that he has faithfully fulfilled his duties as head coach.

Coach Klinsmann’s ‘foreign overseas problem’ soon led to controversy over preferential treatment for overseas players and poor treatment in the K-League.

Criticism continued when injured European players such as Hwang Hee-chan (Wolverhampton),

Cho Gyu-seong (Midtjylland), and Oh Hyun-gyu (Celtic) were listed on the September A-match call-up list.


Because they did not stay in the country, they were unable to discover new players in the K-League,

the suspicious gaze that they were dependent on the overseas players they used regularly was also stinging.

Coach Klinsmann emphasized that as a result of close communication with their teams, he judged that there was no problem with their selection.

Fortunately, Director Klinsmann’s judgment was correct in this part.

Hwang Hee-chan

Hwang Hee-chan, who injured the back of his thigh,

a chronic injury, at the end of last month, dispelled concerns by scoring a goal within a week.

Hwang Hee-chan came on as a substitute in the 15th minute of the second half of the away game against Crystal Palace on the 3rd,

hit the net with a header in 5 minutes, showing off his perfect condition from injury.

Cho Gyu-seong

Cho Gyu-seong, who moved to Denmark this summer and is active,

was replaced after appearing limping during a league game on the 21st of last month, but played full-time in his return game after 10 days,

played 86 minutes against Aarhus on the 4th, even recording an attack point.

After advancing to the Danish stage, Cho Kyu-sung is showing his best performance ahead of the two-game A-match in September,

scoring three goals in the regular league and one goal in the UEFA Europa Conference League (UECL) preliminaries.

Oh Hyun-gyu

Oh Hyun-gyu, who injured his calf in the last game of the pre-season,

was diagnosed with a ‘up to 6-week diagnosis’ and his prospects for international matches seemed to be bleak, but he returned to the field through a rivalry game with Rangers on the 3rd.

The strong performance of the European teams at the beginning of the new season gives Coach Klinsmann strength.

Son Heung-min, the national team captain and coach Klinsmann’s ‘reliable man’,

was appointed captain of Tottenham (England) and showed off his firepower by scoring a hat trick against Burnley on the 2nd.

Hong Hyun-seok

Attacking midfielder Hong Hyun-seok (Gent), who plays in the Belgian league, also scored two goals in the match against Club Brugge on the 3rd.

These players are expected to have no problems managing their condition as they can join the national team with a relatively short travel distance.

Wales is ranked 35th in the FIFA rankings, which is lower than Korea,

which is ranked 28th, but many key players such as Aaron Ramsey (Cardiff City) and Ben Davis (Tottenham) are playing.

Wales is also expected to give their best as the game is being played at home and they are in a position to shake off their recent slump.

Wales lost 2-4 to Armenia and 0-2 to Turkye in the European Football Championship qualifiers last June.
