Jürgen Klinsmann expressed dissatisfaction with the referee’s decision.
The national soccer team, led by head coach Klinsmann, drew 3-3 in the third Group E match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup against coach Kim Pan-gon at 8:30 p.m. on the 25th (Korea time) at Al-Zanup Stadium in Doha, Qatar.
Korea advanced to the round of 16 as the second runner-up in Group E, and ended up avoiding a showdown with Japan. Saudi Arabia, the No. 1 team in Group F, is the most likely match for Korea to make it to the round of 16.
Korea played a rough game against Malaysia, which is ranked 130th in the FIFA rankings. Jung Woo-young’s first goal gave him the lead, but he gave up two goals in the second half. Klinsmann-ho led again with Lee Kang-in’s free kick and Son Heung-min’s penalty kick, but he collapsed when he lost a point just before the end of the match.
After the match, coach Klinsmann said on tvN, “We should have played better and produced better results. We regret that we lost points,” adding, “Malaysia’s penalty kick decision was also a disappointing umpire’s decision. The first goal (of Malaysia) also seemed to have fouled Hwang In-beom, but we need to make up for it defensively anyway. 헤라카지노 The goal of the next match is not to lose points in a counterattack.”
Coach Klinsmann believed that the scene where Hwang In-beom lost his ball in the first run was a foul by Malaysia. He also expressed regret over the judgment that Seol committed a foul while blocking the opponent in the penalty box.
Coach Klinsmann said, “The tournament round has begun. It is no exaggeration to say that the competition has begun now. I think Kim Jin-soo and Hwang Hee-chan have shown strong performance as they return, but I will prepare well for the next game.”
