U-17 World Cup National Team
“I think there is something we can target in terms of teamwork and physical strength. I’ll make a difference in that part
The under-17 national soccer team led by head coach Byun Sung-hwan has strengthened its commitment to win against France.
South Korea will play the second Group E match of the 2023 FIFA U-17 World Cup against France at Jakarta International Stadium in Indonesia at 9 p.m. on the 15th.
Along with France, South Korea teamed up with the U.S. and Burkina Fiso. In the first game against the U.S. on the 12th, they lost 1-3 unfortunately lost 1-3. His offense was excellent, but he showed disappointment in his defensive concentration. Yoon Do-young and Yang Min-hyuk’s shots were unlucky to be hit by the net.
Coach Byun said, “I didn’t get the desired result in the first game, so I got off to a difficult start, but I’m focusing on preparing for tomorrow’s match because I can still create a chance to advance to the round of 16 depending on the results of tomorrow’s match.”
The lack of defensive concentration was revealed in the match against the United States. Manager Byun said, “I am satisfied with the current team’s offense. However, I think the loss was caused by the failure to keep the defensive principles we prepared in the scene of losing three goals against the U.S. “In the match against France, it will be important to keep the team balance while keeping our principles,” he explained.
“I think all the players are threatening. It is a team that has no weakness in individual skills. “There are outstanding players such as offensive midfielder Simon Bouabre AS Monaco and striker Matthijs Lambod Stadren in the attack team, and each defense is strong.”
“I think there is something we can target in terms of organizational power and physical strength. I will make a difference in that area,” he said.
Yang Min-hyuk said, “I lost the first game, but I am focusing on preparing for the match against France. “If we fight well as we planned, I think we can win,” he said.
Lastly, the fans’ support is a great help, he said. “I was sorry that I couldn’t return the support in the match against the U.S. If you continue to support the remaining two games, I will try to give you a good result,” he said emphatically. 사설토토
