The Olympic team led by coach Hwang Seon-hong lost a shock 0-2 to Qatar in the first leg of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup qualifiers held at the Changwon Football Center on the 6th. Goalkeeper Baek Jong-beom made a fatal mistake, but it was a poor performance.
The national team was constantly drawn to Qatar, and even after conceding additional goals, they were unable to score a redemption goal.
Fortunately, the results of the match against Qatar, which qualified as the host country for the U-23 Asian Cup, are not reflected in the rankings.
The national team will decide whether to pass the preliminary round based on the results of the games against Kyrgyzstan on the 9th and Myanmar on the 12th.
Moreover, this competition also serves as the first qualifying round for the Paris Olympics.
If we are not careful, we may fail to advance to the Olympic finals.
After the game, Coach Hwang said, “I am sorry for losing at home.
I think the first goal changed the flow.
I think it was a game that lacked a lot of detail on the offensive side,” he said.
On this day, the national team struggled from start to finish against Qatar.
Director Hwang said, “The half-space strategy is something we have continuously ordered.
There were many back passes during the build-up process, and the fullback’s position was adjusted.
He had difficulty building up with one volanchi and switched to two volanchi.
He led the game, but I think the details didn’t come out,” he said.
The national team will play the game immediately after two days of rest.
Coach Hwang said, “You must be able to control the timing and situation to apply pressure.
The next game requires defense.
I think we need to prepare for the game by ordering an attack.
He believes that a change is needed in the flank attack,” he said. “This cannot be an absolute excuse.
But it’s not over yet.
We need to quickly focus on the next game and not get caught up in the atmosphere,” he emphasized.
Goalkeeper Baek Jong-beom conceded a goal in the 21st minute of the second half after mistaking where the ball landed. 토토사이트
Director Hwang said, “I didn’t say anything else (to Baek Jong-beom).
The lineup consists of many things. I think it was a decisive miss.
Anyone can make mistakes.
We must not lose courage and prepare for the next time.”
