‘Victorious’ Korea coach Kim Eun-Joong says “we’re ready for a counterattack against favorites France”
Head coach Kim Eun-joong stepped to the microphone.
Kim Eun-jung led the South Korea Under-20 National Team to a 2-1 victory over France in their first match of Group F of the FIFA U-20 World Cup 2023 at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas in Mendoza, Argentina on June 23.
On the same day, head coach Kim Eun-joong said through the Korea Football Association, “France is the favorite, so we prepared a tactic of defending and counterattacking. I think the players followed the tactics well, and I’m grateful that the defenders fought to the end without losing their focus, even though France attacked strongly at the end.”
When asked if he was satisfied with his players’ performance, he said, “Some of our players played to the best of their abilities, some didn’t (because they were nervous). But (it’s hard to single out a player), we had 21 players who played together and knew what we had to do, and I think that’s important,” he said, praising the entire squad.
“For now, the first game is over. The games against Honduras and Gambia will not be easy either, so we will prepare well and try to play well in those games as well.” 메이저놀이터
