Our team’s first game in this tournament is the men’s national soccer team’s game against Kuwait this evening.
Coach Hwang Seon-hong, who finished the last training session in a bright atmosphere, emphasized that he would definitely defeat Kuwait not only for the morale of the national soccer team but also for the morale of the entire team.
[Hwang Seon-hong/Asian Games national soccer team coach: We definitely want to win, and we must win. (Other sports) We will do that to give good energy to our players.]
The national team will play all three group stage games in Jinhua, 140km south of Hangzhou.
It is hotter and more humid than in Korea, but we are adapting smoothly as we had a week of training here in advance for an evaluation match against China last June.
[Lee Han-beom/National soccer team defender: I think that’s a good thing because it seems to be less hot than then. I think the answer is to win unconditionally, no matter where you play.]
Korean soccer, which won the tournament in 2014 and 2018, is challenging for its third consecutive gold medal in this tournament, and so far, four countries, including Korea, have won the Asian Games men’s soccer championship for the second time in a row. Although they have a record, no country has ever won three games in a row.
[Lee Kwang-yeon/Asian Games national soccer team goalkeeper: We know very well that we have to make the first move, and since we have to win the gold medal, all of our players are preparing well with earnestness and responsibility.] All preparations are completed
The journey toward a new history begins today.
