“I think we were in a hurry, and because we conceded early on, we were trying to attack to score a goal, so we got open…”

“I think we need to create different situations to draw out the opponent, and we will be aggressive so that we can get a goal.”
On Kyrgyzstan’s expected tactic of playing from the back.
After missing the first leg due to a late call-up, ‘K-Mbappe’ Sang-bin will be the man to beat this time around.
With his explosive speed and daring breakthrough, expectations are high for him to break through the opponent’s dense defense.
As the result of the match against Asian Cup hosts Qatar does not count towards the rankings, Hwang Sun-hong is determined to win against Kyrgyzstan and make history by qualifying for the 10th consecutive Olympic Games.
