China National Youth Team entered the knockout stage again after 9 years, which also made the fans see hope! Only one step away from the World Youth Championship! At 18: 00 p.m. on March 12th, China National Youth Team will compete with Korean National Youth Team in the knockout round, which is also a competition for qualification for the World Youth Championship! Let’s take a look at the three highlights of this game. Forecast score: China men’s soccer team 1-0 Korea, China men’s soccer team 0-1 Korea, in short, both sides will win or lose a smaller score!
1. The promotion of China National Youth Team is not optimistic!
China National Youth Team can advance to the U20 Asian Football Cup, which is beyond most people’s expectation. In Asia, the youth training of China men’s soccer team has fallen behind in all respects! Comparing the data of the three group matches (China’s national youth team is in front), against Japanese national youth team, the ball control rate is 22%-78%, the straight shot is 2-9, the corner kick is 3-12, against Saudi national youth team, the ball control rate is 24%-76%, the straight shot is 5-6, and the corner kick is 2-9, against Kyrgyz national youth team, the ball control rate is 32.5%- The key data, China National Youth Team is not dominant, which is the embodiment of real strength.
However, against the Korean National Youth Team, the China National Youth Team has many embarrassing records. In the past 20 years, China National Youth Team and Korean National Youth Team have played eight times, with one draw and seven losses, and have never won. The last unbeaten game was 9 years ago when Wei Shihao drew 0-0 with the Korean National Youth Team in the group stage of the National Youth Team. In this Asian Cup, South Korea’s national youth team won two wins and one draw in three group matches, scored six goals without conceding a goal, and advanced to the first place in the group. China National Youth Team won one game, drew one and lost one in three group matches, scored four goals and lost three, and advanced to the second place in the group. The strength gap between the two teams is too obvious.
2. Advantages of China National Youth Team!
Looking back on the three group matches of this Asian Cup, China National Youth Team was able to advance. Apart from a little bit of luck, the players’ tactical discipline and never-giving-up fighting spirit on the field were memorable. Whether it is against the Japanese National Youth Team, which is the strongest in the group, or against the Kyrgyz National Youth Team, which has lost two games in a row, China National Youth Team has always insisted on defensive counterattack! And the players always perform this on the court. Four goals, two opponents’ own goals are a bit lucky, but two sharp counterattacks against the Saudi youth team are really fatal! In an interview, the captain of the National Youth Team, Ai Fielding, said that the success of the China National Youth Team was mainly due to the tactical execution of the whole team, great unity and belief in winning, so it was able to enter the quarter-finals.
Football is round, and anything will happen until the game is over!
From the pre-match disappointment to the final promotion success, China National Youth Team has well interpreted the charm of football: football is round, and anything will happen on the field. Compared with South Korea’s national youth team’s group match, China’s national youth team has passed the test of group match, and China’s national youth team has been ahead of its opponents in mentality. As long as the tactical execution is reasonable, it is not necessarily impossible to defeat the strong with the weak!
