Coach Philippe Trussier expressed his gratitude for the success of the match against Korea.
The Vietnamese national team, led by coach Trussier, will play an international match against South Korea at Suwon World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on the 16th.
Vietnam has been pursuing a confrontation with South Korea for a long time. The president of the Football Association showed interest and contacted us even before the coronavirus outbreak.
Vietnam was sincere. Even though it is an invitational evaluation match, it is known that they are self-sufficient in their lodging expenses such as flights and accommodations to prepare for the match against Korea.
Coach Trussier said at a press conference held the day before the game, “We will be playing against a strong team, Korea Republic. We prepared a lot to face a world-class team. He came with a new player. It is a process of creating a team. Focused on this. “Growing is the ultimate goal,” he said.
Coach Trussier also has experience as a Japanese head coach. How has the Korean national team changed from the past to the present?
Coach Trussier said, “Compared to 20 years ago, Korean players are recognized even in Europe. It has been leveled upward to the point where it is classified as the best. This was proven by his consistent participation in the World Cup. Promising young resources are emerging. “You may think the gap with other countries is large, but I think it is narrowing,” he said.
Whether Son Heung-min will sortie or not is of utmost interest. It has been reported that due to the aftermath of a groin injury, he has recently been playing Tottenham Hotspur’s schedule in a condition that is not 100%. There were especially many substitutions this season and there was little full-time play.
Son Heung-min did not appear at the training ground after joining Klinsmann and focused on recovery while being managed separately, but although he was known to be working with his teammates a day before the match against Tunisia, he did not play.
Coach Klinsmann said, “As for Son Heung-min and Hwang In-beom, I think we will have to final check their condition before deciding whether to play.”
Son Heung-min first appeared at the training ground. He started with light stretching and warmed up his body by jogging.
There is so much interest in Vietnam that superstar Son Heung-min’s participation can be felt as a wish.
Son Heung-min also expressed his desire to participate, saying, “I always want to play. I really want to play in games played in Korea. I will prepare well for this. “When I get the chance, I will show you my best side,” he said.
Vietnamese media ‘Bongda Plus’ said, “The name that stands out the most in the Korea-Vietnam match is Son Heung-min. “He did not play in the match against Tunisia due to concerns that he had not fully recovered from his injury.”
He then said, “Son Heung-min said he wanted to play in the game against Vietnam,” and could not hide his anticipation and excitement about the possibility of facing a superstar.메이저사이트
Regarding this, “Vietnam has many new players. I am thankful for the opportunity to play against the strong team Korea. It’s an opportunity for growth. “We will focus on maximizing this and consolidating the process,” he said.
Regarding the match against South Korea, “It is a huge opportunity. Everyone will do their best. It’s not a test. “We will see whether the players will show off their skills on the pitch,” he said, expressing his solemn yet hopeful expectations.
Meanwhile, Vietnam center back Do Duy Man said, “It will be difficult. Korea is a team recognized not only in Asia but also around the world. “I will do my best,” he said.
He continued, “All Vietnamese players are grateful for the match against Korea. There are so many great players. “We are a leader in helping people have dreams like Japan,” he added.
We are also looking for welcome guests. Former coach Park Hang-seo, who has established himself as a national hero in Vietnam, visits to meet his former students.
Do Duy Man said, “This is good news for Vietnamese players. “It’s an element that can boost morale,” he said, expressing his joy.
