Korean national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann (60) smiled and Roberto Mancini (60) smiled as well.

China’s NetEase reported on Wednesday (Korea time) that “the result of the last Asian Cup group stage was strange. We saw Jurgen Klinsmann’s smile.”

The South Korean national soccer team, led by head coach Jürgen Klinsmann, faced Malaysia in the third Group E match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup at Al-Zanub Stadium in Al-Wakra, Qatar, on the 25th (Korea time).

Korea advanced to the round of 16 by ranking second in Group E with five points (1 win and two draws). The next team to face Saudi Arabia, ranking first in Group F.

South Korea, which challenged for the top spot in Asia for the first time in 64 years by shouting “the best power ever,” played a rough game against Malaysia, which is more than 100 spots apart in the FIFA rankings. 헤라카지노도메인

He had an overwhelming 81 percent share of the ball, 18 shots (seven malays) and seven shots on target (four malays), but the result was a 3-3 draw. Klinsmann put forward 11 best players, but failed to beat Malaysia.

Although Korea showed poor performance at all, Coach Klinsmann watched the game from the bench with a smile throughout the entire game. Some interpreted this as a smile to avoid Japan in the round of 16.

China’s NetEase also said, “Coach Klinsmann laughed after drawing 3-3.

NetEase also reported an interview with Saudi Arabia coach Roberto Mancini, who met South Korea in the round of 16.

Mancini was asked about Klinsmann’s smile. “I laughed when I saw Klinsmann smiling. It’s strange, but this happens often in soccer,” Mancini said.

“Korea is a good team and there are players who are active in Europe. We all want to win. It will be a fierce match throughout the 90 minutes,” Mancini said about the match against Korea.

“If you want to be a hero, you always have to be strong. You have to solve things step by step. You can’t be complacent in this kind of game,” he added.

Meanwhile, South Korea and Saudi Arabia will face off for a ticket to the quarterfinals at 1 a.m. on the 31st.
