“Three runs” with only headers…the issue of “offering rights” that was still unresolved, which was eventually held back

The Japanese national soccer team, led by coach Moriyasu Hajime, lost 1-2 to Iraq (63rd in FIFA rankings) in its second Group D match of the 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup, which will take place at Education City Stadium in Alayyan, Qatar, at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday (Korea time). Japan lost the match, giving Iraq the lead.랭크카지노

The game, which was evaluated as Japan’s dominant power, unfolded. In the fifth minute of the first half, goalkeeper Suzuki hit a cross from the left side, but failed to go far, and Aymen Hussein, who was following, scored the first goal with a header. In the extra time of the first half, Ahmed Yahya, who caught the ball from the left side, scored a sharp cross into the box, and Hussein again hit the head and scored multiple goals. Thus, the first half ended with a score of 0-2.

“First half, which was beyond everyone’s prediction. Japan deployed a large number of offensive resources to turn the game around. Takehiro Tomiyasu was added without Shogo Taniguchi at the defense line, while Ayase Ueda, Ritz Doan, Leo Hatate and Daizen Maeda were added at the offensive line. And in the extra time of the second half, Endo Wataru’s pursuit goal exploded, but failed to turn the game around and the game ended with a 1-2 defeat by Japan.

Japan’s “shock defeat” could have been foreseen in a way. It is because of Korea’s weakness that it revealed in the previous match against Vietnam.

Although they won 4-2 in the first match, the issue of central defenders’ right to provide was highlighted. In the 16th minute of the first half, they failed to catch the movement of Dien Park Ngouen in the corner kick situation and allowed the first run, and even in the 32nd minute of the first half, they allowed Viet An to turn the tables by allowing a header, which was the reason for the loss. In addition, Japan’s central defenders also allowed multiple goals, leaving Hussein free.

This is a clear defeat for Moriyasu, who formed the same defensive line as the previous game. The defense lineup did not take into account that Hussein was 189 centimeters tall. Of course, it is true that Hussein moved exquisitely to a position where defenders could not use his hands, but considering that both goals were scored by Hussein’s head, Japan still failed to correct problems in provision.

Meanwhile, Japan fell to second place in the group due to the loss of the match. We will not know until we play the third match against Indonesia, but chances are high that Korea will meet in the round of 16 teams. If the “Korea-Japan match” is made in the round of 16, Korea will need to dig into its weakness of “right to provide.”
