Kim Eun-joong challenges Jordan to advance to AFC U20 Asian Cup quarterfinals

The Korean U20 national team led by coach Kim Eun-joong will challenge for an early confirmation of the quarterfinals.

‘Kim Eun-joong’ will play the second leg of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U20 Asian Cup Group C group stage against Jordan at the JAR Stadium in Tashkent, Uzbekistan at 7 pm (Korean time) on the 5th. In the first leg against Oman, they won 4-0.

The game against Jordan will be a watershed moment for the team to advance to the quarterfinals. Korea, who received a relatively easy grouping, is in Group H along with Oman, Jordan and Tajikistan. Jordan, who defeated Tajikistan 2-0 in the first match, is virtually the only competitor.

Therefore, if you defeat Jordan and win 2 wins, it is no different from winning a ticket to the quarterfinals. In the following match between Oman and Tajikistan, if Oman wins or draws, Korea will advance to the quarterfinals. Even if Tajikistan wins, Korea will advance to the quarterfinals even if Korea draws in the final match.

In this tournament, 16 teams are divided into 4 groups of 4 teams, and after a group stage, the 1st and 2nd places in each group advance to the quarterfinals. A tournament is then held to determine the winning team. 온라인바카라

Korea is aiming for the 2023 International Football Federation (FIFA) Indonesia U20 World Cup finals at the same time as reclaiming the top spot in Asia for the first time in 11 years since 2012 and given to the top four teams.

Therefore, the goal is to reach at least the top 4, so preparation after the top 8 is also important. However, the quarterfinals are expected to be a thorny road.

This is because Japan and Saudi Arabia (above Group D), which have recently been showing good results in the national team by age group, are likely to be in the second place in the group. Korea, which is picky no matter which of the two teams they meet, will have to play a real game with the U20 World Cup ticket at stake.

If the team advances to the quarterfinals or the ninth ridge or the quarterfinals is confirmed early with a win against Jordan, they can focus on preparing for the quarterfinals more leisurely by adjusting their condition in the match against Tajikistan.

On the other hand, coach Kim Eun-jung said, “I won the first match, but arrogance is not allowed. The match against Oman is in the past. I will prepare for the match against Jordan right away.” told
