Asian Cup ends with 1 goal
Klinsmann’s striker Cho Kyu-seong (Midtjylland) expressed his feelings as “It’s all a shame” when the team’s bid to regain the Asian Cup title for the first time in 64 years fell through.
The national soccer team led by coach Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany) lost 0-2 to Jordan in the semifinals of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Qatar Asian Cup held at Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar, at midnight on the 7th (Korean time).
Jordan was so poor that he did not record a single shot while making 7 effective shots.
As a result, Klinsmann, who had hoped to win the tournament for the first time in 64 years since 1960, had to return home in bitter sorrow.
Cho Gyu-seong was substituted for Park Yong-woo in the 11th minute of the second half, but failed to find an attack point. In the 43rd minute of the second half when the team was behind 0-2, they received a warning for showing a simulated action in the opponent’s penalty box.
For Cho Kyu-seong, who rose to stardom by scoring two goals in the group stage against Ghana at the 2022 Qatar World Cup, Qatar was a land of opportunity, but this time was different.
In the round of 16 against Saudi Arabia, all they had to do was score a dramatic equalizer in the second half of extra time when they were down 0-1, setting the stage for victory in a penalty shootout. He was also on the chopping block due to his poor goal scoring ability.
Jo Gyu-seong said, “It’s very disappointing,” and added, “I think we need to improve more. “It was a competition where I felt that I was lacking a lot,” he said.
When asked about the most disappointing scene, he said, “It’s all disappointing. “I can’t think of just one,” he said.
He continued, “First of all, I wanted to leave in good shape before going to my team. “I thought I prepared well for the competition, but I feel so disappointed.”
Lastly, “The competition (among the players) is over. Everyone returns to their respective teams. I told him to go back and prepare well again. “Thank you,” he said and left the joint reporting area. 토토사이트
