On the way to Russia this summer, Korea national soccer team is currently having friendly games in Europe. Congratulations to the 23 players who received calls from coach Shin Tae-yong.
Although I am not in a position to evaluate the individual players or the national team, I would like to look back on the years as a senior player and share my experiences.
The first is "Get ready from now". After this evaluation match, players will be returning to the original team to play, but they must also keep in mind the World Cup and well manage their physical condition and continue to keep eyes on the information about the opponent teams.
The second is "Be confident". Korea has advanced to the World Cup for the ninth straight times. Although we barely passed the final qualifying rounds of this World Cup, image training to win the tournament is a good way to have confidence that many seniors have experienced in the past.
Third, all players to become a team of one body. When all the players, team staff and the boards of Korea football association become one team and help each other, I think we will make good results.
The fact that most of the defensive players are made up of Jeonbuk players is good to build a strong defense through organizational capability. Even though Korea have lost the match against Northern Ireland, it is one of the necessary preparations to play in Russia.
The midfield and the offense should take advantage of players from Europe with both skills and speed. Son and Ki will make a good play.
Lastly, players will have to use a lot of media information. Unlike the past, we should have the wisdom to actively utilize the current environment in which a large amount of information is being disclosed by media. Although it is natural for the team's coaching staff to conduct tactical analysis on the opponent teams and individual players, each player should also gather information to get better results for the games.
Korea national soccer team is one of a few strong teams in the world who made to the World Cup finals nine times in a row. No matter who we play against, we should not be nervous as we were in the past. If we do our best with strong self-confidence, we should be applauded regardless of the outcome of the games.
Through the evaluation matches with European countries, I hope we develop into a stronger team in Russia this summer.
