The showdown with Jordan is just a day away. I asked a Jordanian reporter who visited the Asian Cup site about Korea.
South Korea’s national soccer team, led by coach Jürgen Klinsmann, will play its second Group E match against Jordan at 8:30 p.m. on the 20th (Korea time) at Altumama Stadium in Doha, Qatar.
Korea, which won 3-1 in its first match against Bahrain on the 15th, is ranked second in Group E after Jordan, which won 4-0 in its first match against Malaysia. The match against Jordan is effectively the best match in the group. In past matches with Jordan, Korea has been undefeated with three wins and two draws out of five matches.
I asked a Jordanian reporter I met just in time for the Asian Cup match. Moussa Kaldun, an editor of Abu Dhabi Media, chose Son Heung-min as the most anticipated player in Korea. “Of course it’s Son Heung-min. He is the most talented Korean player,” she said.
He also expressed a positive outlook on Korea’s chances of winning the championship. The reason is that there are many players with outstanding qualifications. “I am confident that Korea will make it to the final. All the players are capable and have many experienced players. There is also a very good coach named Klinsmann. I think he has enough competitiveness to win the championship,” he said.
I turned the question around to get information about the Jordanian national team. Jordan asked what kind of team it was and how it was expecting this match.
I felt a different atmosphere from when I talked to a Bahraini reporter a few days ago ahead of his showdown with Bahrain. Bahraini reporters showed great confidence in the match against Korea, but Jordan coolly analyzed and evaluated the situation. 헤라카지노도메인
“Jordan is not such a good team. There are some problems with the coaching system, and the Jordanian sports community doesn’t think our current coach, Hussein Amota, can achieve anything with the Jordanian national team. So it’s not very optimistic. Jordan just wants to put on a good performance. That’s all,” he said.
