Mission accomplished by defeating Thailand in World Cup qualifiers “We will do our best to qualify for the 10th consecutive Olympics”

Coach Hwang Seon-hong (pictured), who took the temporary lead of the Korean national soccer team and completed his role with ease, expressed his determination to pour everything into his main job, the Olympic team, from now on.

Coach Hwang arrived at the arrival hall of Incheon International Airport on the afternoon of the 27th, the day after the 3-0 victory against Thailand in the 2026 North and Central America World Cup Asian 2nd qualifying round Group C 4th match, and said, “I will leave everything there because the Olympic team will enter the country tomorrow.” “I plan to focus on (the Olympic team),” he said. In response to a reporter’s question about whether the possibility of appointing an official coach of the National Team A was also discussed, Coach Hwang said, “I have never even thought about that.”

The Olympic team led by Coach Hwang is aiming to advance to the Olympic finals for the 10th consecutive time. Starting on the 15th of next month, you must place in the top three at the U-23 Asian Cup, which will be held in Qatar as an Asian qualifier for the 2024 Paris Olympics, to receive a direct ticket to the Olympic finals. If you place 4th, you must win a playoff against the 4th-place African country to advance to the Olympics. There are 16 countries participating in the U-23 Asian Cup, and Korea was in Group B along with Japan, China, and the United Arab Emirates. They are in the toughest group among the four groups A-D, so going to Paris is not easy. Regarding this competition, Coach Hwang also said, “It will be a difficult competition. I think we can show our competitiveness only if we prepare well. “Everyone will work together and do our best,” he said.

While Coach Hwang was away as the temporary head coach of the National Team A, the Olympic team won the championship by defeating Australia in a penalty shootout in the final of the West Asian Football Confederation U-23 Championship held in Saudi Arabia on the 27th. The Olympic team, which arrives in the country on the 28th, will be reconvened on April 1st and begin training for the Asian qualifiers for the Paris Olympics. 성인웹툰
