The national soccer team will face its fateful opponent, Japan, for the gold medal tonight.
In particular, our national team is attempting to win three consecutive games for the first time in Asian Games history through this final.
Having lost to Japan five times in a row in recent age-group national team matches, I look forward to repaying them with a refreshing victory.
The national team overcame Uzbekistan’s rough play and got one step closer to its first three-game losing streak.
Eom Won-sang, who suffered a sprained left ankle after being tackled by an opposing player, completed his last training normally, allowing Hwang Seon-hong-ho to face Japan at his best.
Japan, who also reached the finals with all wins, built a team mainly of 22-year-old players, two years younger than them, in preparation for next year’s Paris Olympics, but they are by no means an opponent to be taken lightly.
Japanese soccer’s unique passing play and ability to create space are its strengths, and preparation measures to block them seem necessary.
“Because they are good at passing and all players have good basic skills, I think they will play completely opposite soccer from Uzbekistan, so I think we need to prepare well for that.”
From the 2021 national team friendly match to the under-17 Asian Cup final three months ago, the national team was defeated 0-3 five times in a row in the age group match.
In particular, the national team featuring Lee Kang-in, Hong Hyun-seok, and Cho Young-wook suffered a humiliating defeat in the quarterfinals of the 23-year-old Asian Cup last year, so the players are preparing to seek revenge.
“Whether the opponent is strong or weak, I think we need to pour everything out for the last time in any situation.”
“Now there is one last step left, and I will go into the game with the mindset that I will win and win at any cost.”
Hwang Seon-hong is dreaming of regaining the glory of five years ago when he defeated Japan and won the gold medal with consecutive goals from Lee Seung-woo and Hwang Hee-chan.
All you have to do is take one step to reach the moment you’ve been longing for.
Now all that’s left is to pour everything out without regrets.토토사이트
