Is there hope for the national football team? Asian Games national youth was killed by South Korea, it is difficult to turn over in ten years, and 40 years have not participated in the World Cup?
The men's Asian Games team lost at the feet of South Korea and stopped in the quarterfinals, and the Chinese men's football team once again blocked the fans, and made people lose hope for their future: the national football team has not participated in the World Cup for 20 years, and another 20 years?
From the National Youth League to the Asian Games, the gap with South Korea is getting bigger and bigger
In front of this Korean men's football team, the shortcomings of the Asian Games team have been exposed, whether in terms of personal ability, technical and tactical level, and even basic skills, they are teams that are two or three grades apart.
And South Korean coach Hwang Sun-hong also dared to put Lee Gang-in and Jung Youying on the bench, which is both confidence in his own strength and contempt for the strength of the Chinese men's team, and has proved that this contempt is correct.
The 2-0 score no longer fully reflects our disadvantage. Compared with this match, this year's U20 Asian Cup 1/4 final, the national youth is still "defeated", after all, it was the first goal and forced into overtime, and finally 1-3 was eliminated, but the gap in overall strength is still clearly visible.
You know, at the level of the adult national team, the national football team has been difficult to match South Korea. In the just-concluded last round of the five major leagues, Son Heung-min scored the Liverpool goal, Hwang Hee-chan scored to beat Manchester City, and we can only fight in the Chinese Super League, and no player plays in the mainstream European league.
In the youth team, the gap between the men's football team and South Korea is also widening. Look at Lee Gang-jin joining Paris, Jung Youying has a firm foothold in the Bundesliga, Hong Hyun-seok is the core of the midfield of the giants of the Bijia League, and some of our players, some of them can't even play in the Chinese Super League.
40 years without the World Cup?
Fans are calling for the Chinese men's football team to change blood as soon as possible and promote young players, but can the rising stars of the national youth and Asian Games teams really support the future of Chinese football? Zhu Chenjie and Jiang Shenglong are the main central defenders of the national football team in the future? It's really worrying. Perhaps the most anticipated is Dai Weijun, but in front of Bai Shenghao, he also has to be dwarfed.
There is also a national junior, this year's U17 Asian Cup, 1-1 draw Tajikistan, 3-5 loss to Australia, 0-3 loss to Saudi Arabia, the bottom of the group stage out! Ten years from now, they will be the backbone of the Chinese men's team.
Therefore, it can be said that in the next 5-10 years, the national football team will enter the World Cup, which is very difficult and the possibility is really low. And such a situation will only trigger a vicious circle, so if Chinese football cannot fundamentally make major changes, the 20-year 20-year 20 years of 2002-2022 will not be able to participate in the World Cup, at least there will be another reincarnation!
