Japanese local media reported that the national soccer team could play the first Korea-Japan match under the new manager Jurgen Klinsmann as an away game in Japan in June. The Korea Football Association immediately denied it.
On the 12th, Japanese sports magazine ‘Sports Nippon’ said, “South Korea is emerging as the opponent of the Japanese national team’s A-match in June.” Korea wants an evaluation match against Japan this year and is negotiating for a match in June.” Then, quoting the Japan Football Association Technical Committee Chairman, “Coach Hajime Moriyasu wants to face a strong player in an A match in June.” As an eternal rival, there is no shortage of opponents.”카지노
Japan faced Uruguay and Colombia like Korea during the A match last March. Japan drew 1-1 with Uruguay and lost to Colombia 1-2. Sports Nippon explained that coach Moriyasu wants to improve the perfection of the fake sideback tactic recently introduced during the A match in June.
If the Korea-Japan match takes place in June, it will be 11 months since the East Asian Cup match in July last year. At the time, the national team, which consisted mainly of K-League players, lost 0-3 to Japan.
Sports Nippon evaluated that the match between Japanese national team winger Kaoru Mitoma, who is active in the English Premier League (EPL) Brighton, and Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham), who recently became the first Asian player to score 100 EPL goals, was also a match that draws attention. .
Regarding this, the Korea Football Association refuted that it is not true at all. An official from the association said, “We cooperate a lot with the Japan Football Association while preparing for A-match, but the joke between the working-level workers, ‘If there is no opponent, let’s do it ourselves’, seems to be distorted.” He said, “Even in March, we never discussed the war between Korea and Japan.” Negotiations are not ongoing,” he said.
An official familiar with the association’s circumstances explained that the possibility of a Korea-Japan match in June is low considering Japan’s advanced A-match promotion and realistic conditions. In particular, it is expected that it will be difficult to find a point of contact as both countries want home, not away, considering the sponsor contract for the June A match.
