Vietnam Football Association “Korea’s Great Challenge to Japan”

Analysts say that the 18th Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup Qatar is the TOP2 structure between the strongest Japan and the strongest South Korea among the rest.

Through the AFC Asian Cup preview content, Vietnam’s “Tapjibongda” asked, “If Japan is considered the No. 1 candidate, Korea is a ‘great challenger’. Thanks to the magical kick of Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham), how high can he fly?”

“Tapchibongda” is a daily newspaper published by the Vietnam Football Association. Japan, ranked 17th in the world, will play the first to third matches of Group D on Jan. 14, 19 and 24 against Vietnam ▲ 94th, Vietnam ▲ 63rd, Iraq ▲ 146th, and Indonesia.

South Korea, ranked 23rd in the world, will play against ▲ 86th Bahrain ▲ 87th Jordan ▲ 130th Malaysia in Group E of the Asian Cup on January 15, 20th and 25th. As expected, if Japan leads Group D and South Korea advances to the round of 16 with the lead in Group E and continues without elimination, it will face off in the final on February 11.

Son Heung-min is the top scorer in the English Premier League (EPL) ▲2020 Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Pushkasi Award ▲ 2021-22 Eurosport. Vietnam’s No. 1 sports newspaper “Tap Chi Bonda” praised him as “a star worth waiting for more than anyone else in this Asian Cup.”

EPL is considered the No. 1 player in the UEFA league. “It is very surprising that Korea, an Asian giant, has never won an Asian Cup title for 64 years since its defeat in the first and second tournaments in 1956 and 1960. Even after making it to the final for four times, it failed to add a win,” said “Tapjibonda.”

▲ Son Heung-min, the captain and striker of the strong national team and considered Tottenham’s soul ▲ Hwang Hee-chan, a rising soccer star who scored double digits in the 2023-24 EPL, ▲ Kim Min-jae and Jung Woo-young ▲ Lee Kang-in, who made a strong impression in the German Bundesliga, were introduced as major Korean players.

The Bundesliga is ranked fourth in the European league. Kim Min-jae (28, Bayern Munich) is a world-class central defender who was named the 2022-23 ESM Best 11 and 2023 International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) Team of the Year. Jung Woo-young (25, Stuttgart) is the top scorer at the 19th Hangzhou Asian Games in China.월카지노

France is ranked fifth in the European league, while Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is ranked fourth in the European club rankings. Lee Kang-in has been named the 2023 Super Cup MVP of the French Professional Football Confederation. “The presence of such high-quality Korean stars helps us to play a game that is no inferior to Japan, which is better as a team,” said “Tapjibonda.”

“The attack does not show the same destructive power as Japan, but the defense led by center back Kim Min-jae, who also has midfielder-like skills, has not lost seven consecutive A-matches,” an analysis of the Korean national soccer team ahead of the Asian Cup.

“Tapjibongda” said, “▲world-class ability ▲ rich experience ▲ There are many soccer players with mental and techniques that do not discourage on the international stage, and the whole team’s struggle is good.” There is no doubt that Korea is Japan’s great competitor to the Asian Cup throne,” he told a Vietnamese reader.

Japan is the most victorious country in the AFC Asian Cup, which won the 10th, 12th, 13th, and 15th competitions in 1992, 2000, 2004, and 2011. Although the formula for “entering to the finals = reaching the top” was broken by the runner-up of the 17th competition in 2019, the performance of “more than 5th place in 8 consecutive competitions” is currently in progress.
