Korean national soccer team, Group E with Malaysia, Bahrain and Jordan in the Asian Cup

Korea is tied in Group 2 with Malaysia, Bahrain and Jordan.

Football team coach Jurgen Klinsmann attended the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup draw ceremony held at the Katara Opera House in Doha, Qatar at 8:00 pm (Korean time) on the 11th. Korea, ranked 27th in the FIFA rankings, was assigned pot 1. It is the third highest after Japan (20th) and Iran (24th). Hosts Qatar, Australia and Saudi Arabia were in Pot 1.

Korea is tied in Group E. Group E includes Malaysia, led by manager Kim Pan-gon, as well as Jordan and Bahrain. It is evaluated as a good grouping. Indonesia, led by head coach Shin Tae-yong, was assigned to Group D. Coach Klinsman said, “I’m happy to be part of this tournament in Asia. Qatar had a good tournament at the World Cup, so I’m looking forward to this tournament as well.”

Korean football legend Park Ji-sung (Jeonbuk Hyundai Technical Director) attended the event as a group draw along with Tim Cahill (Australia), Serber Zefarov (Uzbekistan), and Hassan Al-Haidos (Qatar). Park Ji-sung said, “It is an honor to represent Korea at the draw ceremony. South Korea has players such as Son Heung-min and Kim Min-jae with coach Jurgen Klinsmann. I believe we will win this competition.” 카지노사이트

In this tournament, Korea is aiming for its first championship in 64 years. In the meantime, Korea has been showing off its status as the leader of Asia, but it has no relationship with the Asian Cup. Starting with the first tournament in 1956, they succeeded in winning two consecutive victories, but they were far from winning after that. It has not been achieved for 64 years since 1960. When coach Klinsman took office in March, he said, “Winning the Asian Cup is my number one goal.”

Meanwhile, the venue of the 2023 AFC Asian Cup was changed from China to Qatar due to the novel coronavirus infection (Corona 19). From January 12th to February 10th next year, the tournament will be held in 8 stadiums in 5 cities, mainly in Doha, Qatar.
