The Korean national team is set to participate in the Asian Cup for the first time in 64 years. However, the team was under fire for failing to display satisfactory performance in the group stage. Shin Tae-yong, the coach of the Korean national team, encouraged his former students, saying, “It is just the beginning.”라바카지노
After reaching the round of 16 at the World Cup in Qatar two years ago, the Korean team has handed over the baton to Coach Klinsmann. Klinsmann’s goal is to win the Asian Cup with players who are growing while playing in major European leagues.
However, the team performed poorly in the group stage without showing any clear colors. The team started by shouting “Winning the Championship” for the first time in 64 years, but failed to display overwhelming performance against the team that was lagging behind the other team.
Coach Shin Tae-yong took the helm of the Korean national team as a firefighter in 2018 and led the World Cup in Russia. He created the miracle of Kazan by defeating Germany, which was ranked No. 1 in the FIFA rankings at the time. Some of them have changed, but his students, including Son Heung-min, who were with him at the time, are playing in the Asian Cup.
Coach Shin Tae-yong did not worry too much about the performance of the Korean national soccer team. “Korea is not a team that is concerned about passing the group stage at the Asian Cup. This is a team that focuses on the tournament. This is the beginning. If we focus more, prepare and control our performance, soccer fans will not be disappointed,” he said.
Following the results of Oman and Kyrgyzstan, the Indonesian team got on the last leg of its advance to the round of 16 wild cards, ranking third in its Asian Cup group. After losing 1-3 to Japan, it said, “The will of the sky,” but a miracle was realized.
How did you feel when the team clinched the round of 16 strongest teams? Coach Shin Tae-yong said on “Yonhap News” that “Kyrgiestan and Oman are in the same group for the World Cup qualifiers in North Korea, Central America, and the U.S. There is a possibility of a draw. When the two teams tied 1-1, I was really nervous. To be honest, I was more stressed than when I was a Korean coach.”
It will meet Australia in the round of 16, but it could also meet Korea in the tournament. “Honestly, I want to advance to the quarterfinals. Korea is ranked 146th in the FIFA rankings, while Australia and Korea are ranked in the top 20. There is a difference in their skills. From our standpoint, it is not easy to hit an egg on a rock. However, the ball is round, so anything can happen in a tournament. I want to play well against Australia to get good results and play a great match against Korea in the quarterfinals,” coach Shin Tae-yong said.
